Side Up

Skip the lotion and anti-wrinkle creams and head out in the sun if you want to beat ageing at its game. Vitamin D produced by the skin in response to sunshine is just the thing to stay youthful, with the added bonus of protection from heart disease and cancer, say researchers at King’s College, London. People with higher levels of vitamin D have longer telomeres, the biological marker of being younger and healthier, compared to peers who shied away from sunshine. And for an added boost of Vitamin D, fish, eggs and cereals are the way to go.
