Sunshine and Vitamin D

An overwhelming number of studies have recently come out that show that there are many health-giving benefits from sun exposure. Just a few years ago, the consistent message from the medical and scientific community was that any sun exposure was bad. But we now know the vital importance of the vitamin D that sunshine gives us. Studies have shown that it helps us fight illnesses like cancer, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, influenza, psoriasis, Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (P.M.S.), sleep disorders and autoimmune diseases. In this episode we get the most up to date information from Dr. Holick who was an early pioneer in researching the link between vitamin D and cancer. As a result, he is now one of leading experts in the world on the subject.
