Above: What Exactly Does The Sun Do To Your Beautiful Skin?
Have you ever wondered what exactly the sun does to your beautiful skin? Join us as we explain what UV rays do to your beautiful body. These young women had no clue what the sun did to their once beautiful young looking skin. We have a range of terrible excuses for forgetting to put on sunscreen — from being in a rush, to not wanting to get our hands oily (there’s a spray for that, people), to believing that the sun’s rays are entirely blocked when it’s overcast and cloudy.
Sunlight arrives on earth in three forms: infrared (heat), visible light, and ultraviolet. Fair-skinned women usually burn rather than tan in the sun because they lack melanin, which is responsible for a tan’s coloring. A fifth of adults think they can’t get a sunburn if they already have a tan.

Summer is here, and that means more time in the sun! However, most of us have been warned about the dangers of sun exposure. But our fashion models wonder, is getting that bronzed bikini body ever actually good for your health? There is a pervasive belief in our culture that a tan connotes health, affluence, wealth, and even beauty. Guess what? Tanning beds are really bad for you. In fact, many doctors believe that tanning beds are as bad for you as smoking.
Does Life Experience Change Your Cell Biology And Genetic Structure? Are Humans Software That Can Be Programmed?

“A cell is a machine for turning life experiences into biology.”
Have you ever wondered if your life experiences can change your cell biology? Are humans truly powerful beings with the capacity to change our very own genetic structure based on our daily activities and things that we experience throughout our lives?
Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product. These products are often proteins, but in non-protein coding genes such as transfer RNA (tRNA) or small nuclear RNA (snRNA) genes, the product is a functional RNA. The process of gene expression is used by all known life—eukaryotes (including multicellular organisms), prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea), and utilized by viruses, to generate the macromolecular machinery for life.
