The "fire" element is essential for life to exist on earth. Because our atmosphere filters out most radiation and wavelengths, we primarily receive infrared, visible light and ultraviolet light from the sun with only small amounts of radio, x-ray, and gamma-ray frequencies. Regarding the health of the human body, the sun directly helps us in important ways. The sun gives us warmth because our planet is the perfect distance from the sun, making life on earth possible. Maintaining a stable body temperature is essential, otherwise our bodies become stressed by temperatures too cold or too hot. The infrared component of sunlight gives us the sensation of "warmth."
