Dr. John Cannell has discovered some interesting things regarding Vitamin D. He realized that children have never been poisoned by Vitamin D… as many have with Tylenol and aspirin. Vitamin D actually regulates cells, systems and organs throughout the body. It turns your genes on and off, which distinguishes it from any other vitamin.
Scientists have also proven that where there’s less sun, there’s more disease. This explains why we see more colds and flu viruses in the winter when the sun is less likely to appear. Exposure to the sun can cause harmful damage to your skin. However, it also has the benefit of boosting the amount of Vitamin D in your body.
Very few people get enough sun to boost the amount of Vitamin D in their body. Sunscreens actually block the wrong rays, according to recent research. The lotions are blocking the types of ray which helps your body produce Vitamin D. They are, however, letting through the harmful, cancer-causing rays.
Dr. Cannell recommends keeping your time in the sun at a moderate level. He thinks you should spend no more than 15 minutes in the sun at a time. Some experts vehemently disagree with this, so you should speak with your own trusted health care professional to find out what’s best for you.
Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent among a large percentage of the population. You need to be conscious of how much of it you are consuming and do your best to add the vitamin to your diet to help prevent bone diseases, heart attacks and strokes.
