Health Benefits Of Sunlight

.
The debate on whether the sun is a friend or a foe is ongoing, with more and more people afraid of sun exposure given its ties to skin cancer and premature aging. But don't completely shun the sun, as sun exposure has numerous health benefits that go beyond just vitamin D.

Sufficient Supply of Vitamin D

The most notable benefit of exposure to sunlight is its ability to boost your body's vitamin D supply. The NIH says at least 1,000 different genes that control every tissue in the body are linked to be regulated by vitamin D3. Vitamin D is produced by the skin's response to UV radiation primarily through sun exposure, which affects 10 percent of the genes in the human body. In a study researchers did vitamin D screenings on approximately 500 children admitted to hospital . Two in five children were found to have a vitamin D deficiency, which was linked to severe illness and a longer hospital stay. A healthy supply of vitamin D promotes bone growth and prevent illnesses such as breast and colon cancer, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, seasonal disorders, and depression.

TammyWhite Some years ago Doctors said that we had only about 60 hours of sunlight in all winter, that made people get sick so easily. This 3 weeks happen the same, only a few hours of sun in all time.
