Cancer-Fighting Vitamins, Toxic Fruit and Sunscreen – Weekly Highlights

How is it June already?! While we wrap our heads around that one, let’s take a look back on the best stories of the week.

First off, Michelle Schoffro Cook has started a Kindness Revolution this month. Every day she’ll be giving us updates on her journey. Follow along for great insights to help you add more kindness to your life.

Now that the weather is warming up and we’re spending more time outdoors, we’re thinking more about sunscreen. But before you slather some on, read this new report on the Risks of Sunscreen. And since you’re heading outdoors, find out why Breathing Dirt May Make You Smarter.

While you’re at it, pick up some veggies with the Top 5 Vitamins That Protect Against Cancer. And, find out which healing herbs are easy to grow in your own backyard.

We’re not all about fruits and veggies, though. When you’re craving sweets, we’ve got 8 energy-sustaining options, including peanut butter cookies!

I'm seriously considering unsubscribing from this newsletter because lately it seems like way too many of the articles are "this causes cancer, that causes toxic." I prefer happy news in my world.
