34. Maybe it works for her
But yes, it is far more likely to cause cancer than sunlight.

I think KO was going a little far on his show. He should have said he doesn't believe for a second it's for SAD.

Unless you live in a fairly southern state, you're going to be short on daylight in the winter and be more than a little moody.
