Interesting, am aware of most of these. And for when the summer ends and the snow flies, when skiing, the sun reflects more off of snow and one can get a burn unless using sunscreen while out on the slopes or doing cross country skiing!

Interesting, thank-you for the post. I have problems with the question concerning daily water consumption. Most believe what they hear, drink 8 - 8 oz. glasses of water/day. Folks, that is not necessarily so. Maybe yes when you are sweating a lot & thus loosing water from your body that way. Otherwise, no. One way you can tell when your body is adequately hydrated is by the color of your urine. When urine is yellow enough to slightly change the color of the water in the toilet bowl then your body is being adequately hydrated. No change means there is too much water in your body. Dark amber colored means you are behind in your fluid intake & are dehydrated. I'm sharing this information with you from personal & professional experience.
I too don't understand why each question or slide has to have its own page. 2 or 3 Pages would have been more that sufficient. I thank-you for reading this.

gee, another article on this website claimed you don't have to drink any water at all & you can get enough fluid through foods.

I can't stand flipflops anyway. I don't get how other people like them so much. They rub my feet raw, feel uncomfortable and I can't get them to stay on my feet. I go barefoot most of the time anyway, unless it's cold.
I don't want a tan, I don't find being massively tanned (or huge muscles) attractive and I can't tan anyway, I burn if I wear anything lower than factor 30.

I wish I cared enough to click through a 10-page slide show, but I don't.
