    Nutrition and Sun Protection

    Shop Now
    I read this article relating to nutrition and sun protective nature of the Mediterranean Diet. I think it supplements ideas on the sun protective nature of the Primal Diet. The importance of colorful fruits and vegetables. Emphasis on omega-3 in the diet. To quote the article, "the effects of dietary aspects characteristic of the Mediterranean diet on the incidence of cutaneous melanoma, a protective effect was found for the following key features: weekly consumption of fish and shellfish (including fish rich in n-3 PUFAs), daily drinking of tea, high intakes of vegetables (particularly carrots and cruciferous and leafy vegetables) and fruits (particular citrus), high intakes of carotenoids, and low alcohol consumption.

    Good. I hope I am covered with the fish oil I take, and the veggies I eat. I love carrots, and those are a regular part of my diet.

    I've been working as a contractor here in Baghdad for about 3 years now. Since going primal, I haven't had a single sunburn, and I no longer wear sunscreen...we had a softtball doubleheader a few Sundays ago - one at noon, one at 1pm. Shorts, TShirt, hat, sunglasses, sneakers - no sunscreen. 3 hours in the sun, with no sunscreen, and no sunburn. Temp that day - 117 degrees Farenheit. GROK ON!

    I eat almost 100% primal, and I got sunburned on Saturday while floating around in the pool. I was out there for about an hour, and it was over 100 degrees, so it was expected. For me, PB does not protect my skin.

    The higher amounts of fat I eat, the less I burn.
