Well which is it? Is early morning sunbathing good or bad for you?

Two articles in today's Mail caught my eye, mainly because they were all but next to each other.

First this article revealed that:
'Holidaymakers wanting to lose weight on holiday should sunbathe in the morning rather than the afternoon, according to a new study.

Researchers found early rays keep off the pounds as people exposed to earlier sunlight are leaner than those who opt for the afternoon.

The report shows the timing, intensity and duration of light exposure during the day is linked to weight - the first time this has been shown.'
Then this article told us that ;
'(A) Woman, 63, dies after being mauled by shark as she went for early morning swim off Australian beach'

Maybe early morning sunbathing is good for you but not early morning swimming? Personally I like to do both, but not in shark infested areas.
