Is Sunscreen the New Margarine? (The Importance of Vitamin D)
A friend sent me this article yesterday and I believe it highlights the controversy surrounding sun exposure and the use of sunscreen. The article supports my contention that sunscreen does more harm than good. People with low levels of Vitamin D in their blood have significantly higher rates of many disorders, including cancer and heart disease. The money quote:
“Avoidance of sun exposure is a risk factor of a similar magnitude as smoking, in terms of life expectancy.”
I happen to disagree with the notion that supplementation with Vitamin D is not beneficial.
