Here's an excerpt from a piece entitled: "Vitamin D Health: Why You Shouldn't Shun the Sun!":
"For the last 30 years or so, doctors (dermatologists in particular), health officials, beauty experts and many product companies have been demonizing the sun. They've told us to avoid it because without sunscreen, exposure to the sun's rays will damage skin and cause cancer. But this oversimplification distorts the facts. In the past few years, numerous studies have shown thatoptimizing your vitamin D levels may actually help prevent as many as 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, breast, ovarian, prostate and colon cancers. And the best way to optimize Vitamin D levels is through safe, smart and limited sunscreen-free exposure to the sun."

Here's an article that was in the New York Times a couple of years ago that described something I have experienced as real for many years - that bright sunlight is good for your eyes. The piece is entitled: "THE SUN IS THE BEST OPTOMETRIST," and it makes the claim that "the rapid increase in nearsightedness appears to be due to a characteristic of modern life: more and more time spent indoors under artificial lights."
The entire short article is definitely worth reading.
Believe your eyes, folks, not the medical-pharmaceutical complex! Do you think the Universe would play such a sadistic trick as making that which gives life to everything on this planet deadly to us?
