5. It's Brighter in Miami
The Travelsupermarket.com survey also ranked Miami as Number 9 in the number of Sunlight hours, clocking in 3,154 hours of sunlight on average. Why is this important for overall health? When natural sunlight hits the skin it triggers the body's production of vitamin D, also known as “the sunshine vitamin.” This often overlooked vitamin is a crucial ingredient for our overall health. It protects against inflammation, lowers high blood pressure, helps muscles, improves brain function and may even protect against cancer.
