I personally have subscribed on, and Mike Geary sends the subscribers emails about health stuff. I trust him, because i have tried some of his advices. And because i trust him his place will be always found over my blog. Think before doing anything then trust that person. Today’s topic is really important, and i only copied some points, if you want to read more visit the green link at the bottom of the topic, and you have to figure out the truth you want to believe. Enjoy. Is Sun Exposure Really “Deadly” as the Media Would Have You Believe?  Or Can Regular Sunshine Give You a Better Body and Health?


One thing that never made sense to me over the years was how the media and other sources have always tried to portray sun exposure as “the sun’s deadly rays”. It’s as if they would have you believe that we need to live in caves and never see the sun to prevent cancer and stay in good health.

But this is absurd if you think about it… the sun is THE provider of all life on earth. Without the sun, everything on earth would die.

Don’t worry, I’m not ignoring the fact that overexposure to the sun CAN cause problems, including cancer… but we need to also consider the fact that underexposure to the sun can have problems as well. 

Let’s look at a few points to consider:

sunrays51. Non-consistent sun exposure and infrequent SUNBURNS is the major cause of damage to the skin and increased risk of cancer… Think about your typical person that sits inside an office all week long without ever seeing the sun, and then gets FRIED at the pool or the beach on the weekend. THIS is where the damage occurs.

2.Regular consistent small amounts of exposure to the sun (without burning) can actually have a protective effect on the skin, increases healthful Vitamin D levels in the body, and can improve mood, help depression, and dozens of other benefits.  For each individual’s skin pigmentation determines what amount of sun exposure they can safely obtain without doing more harm than good.

6. It is hard to obtain enough Vitamin D from dietary sources alone (egg yolks, organ meats, and fatty fish are good sources, but still relatively small). The best utilized source of Vitamin D is what we produce in our bodies from moderate regular sun exposure without burning.


8. Another point that proves that irregular burning is the major cause of damage and not regular small doses of sunrays4sunshine… Rates of skin cancer are typically higher in areas of the body that get irregular sun and occasional burning as opposed to areas of the body that have received consistent sun for your entire life.


10. Think about this issue in terms of common sense — Don’t you feel a heck of a lot better and more energetic when you’ve at least gotten out in the sun for 20 or 30 minutes in a day rather than being stuck inside all day?

Lastly, I’m not a doctor, so many of the points in this article are my opinions based on years of reading and research. sunrays3Make sure to consult with your doctor on your individual characteristics and how this relates to sun exposure and vitamin D.
