The Sand Catcher

“IS pregnant beach girl Britney right to sunbathe?” asks the Mail.

Looking at the picture of a voluminous Britney Spears reclining on a Malibu beach, we see the problem. The risk that some caring tree hugger will approach the prone star and roll her back into the waters seem too high.

But the Mail sees more reason for concern than any Save the Whale campaigners causing Britney to drown.

The paper says it’s 80 degrees on the sands. And hears from Annette Briley, a midwife at King’s College Hospital. She says that heat might not be good for pregnant women. It seems there is evidence that UV rays can break down folic acid in the body. Briley says exposure to the sun increases the risk of developing cholasma, “which occurs in darkened spots on the body and face”.

But surely in being on the soft sands, Britney negates another problem. The Star revels that she was not alone on the beach but with son Sean Preston.

She is seen holding the little boy on her hip. And if he were to, say, fall to the ground, would the sand not cushion his fall?
