pThe simplistic, popular story is that sunlight exposure has a linear relationship with cancer, similar to how we view smoking. None is safest and each additional minute in the sun will increase our chance of getting cancer. Many people (maybe most) therefore live in a world with danger lurking beyond every shadow, umbrella, overhang, and roof.

Out of all the spring vegetables to fawn over, asparagus might be my favorite. It’s a versatile veggie: You can easily throw it in the oven with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, or you can get a little fancier by turning it into a purée or adding it to a frittata.
