Comment of the Week

I find my sun resistance varies more by region than diet.

In the Persian Gulf areas, I’d tan, but I don’t recall ever getting a sunburn (my ancestors were Vikings – my blond hair is darker than my skin, and I cook like a lobster). Further inland, in northeastern Iraq (Zagros Mountains), I developed a minor tan but only burned a little when some of my buddies got the bright idea to suntan on the roof of a bunker and fell asleep. Even in the Empty Quarter of Abu Dhabi, we’d spend hours on quads or trying to snowboard down sand dunes… no burn.

There’s a lot of dust and other particulate in the air in those regions – I don’t know if that made the difference, but there was a noticeable difference in how little I’d burn in 120° sun in the ME vice the scaly hell from the 65° sun at the Ren Faire near Phoenix last week.”
