There are many health benefits associated with being outdoors. It is a proven fact that indoor air quality is 100% more polluted than outdoor air! Shocking, isn't it! 50% of all illnesses are attributed to indoor air!

Today, American families spend more than 90% of their time inside. Many different types of pollutants enter your home and office on a daily basis. The dust in the carpet is the equivalent of toxic waste! Not only that, according to recent research, new carpet itself can actually be toxic! Request that your work, school or daycare install toxic-free carpet.
If you are an asthma or allergy sufferer you will significantly benefit by being outside! Allergens such as dust and mold breed inside of buildings and homes! Fresh air allows your lungs to cleanse themselves of these types of allergens. Additionally, being outdoors significantly alleviates runny noses and congestion!
Camping is also a relaxing and inexpensive way to vacation.

Sun Kind of Vitamin
Is vitamin D powerful enough to go head-to-head with cancer?
Yes, according to a growing body of evidence. High levels of vitamin D have been found to protect against several kinds of cancer, particularly those of the digestive system: mouth, throat, stomach and colon. While many of us think we get plenty of vitamin D from milk or a multivitamin, it turns out that the best source is the sun. Its rays trigger your body to produce the nutrient and a 10-20 minute stroll each day yields an abundant dose.
