To Sun or not to sun? That is the question.. and here’s the answer!

Mauritius001A new Swedish study recently published in the Journal of Internal Medicine followed 30,000 women over a period of 20 years, having recorded detailed information about their sun habits at the start of the study. The Karolinska Institute researchers found that, among those who avoided sun exposure, twice as many women died from all causes over the period compared with those having the highest sun exposure.
The study has huge implications for public health, and the authors have stressed that “restrictive sun exposure advice in countries with low solar intensity might not be beneficial to women’s health”. Sunlight exposure stimulates vitamin D production in the body, and there is a growing body of evidence that strongly suggests that adequate levels are protective against ill health and a vast range of diseases.
