Solariums / Sun Beds – Dangerous Killers or Potential Life Savers?
Solariums / Sun Beds: Rather than a danger could they actually ‘improve’ your health or even ‘save’ your life?
How the UV & Vitamin D benefits of sun beds can outweigh the dangers & why they should ‘NOT’ be banned
Based on both common sense, ancient wisdom and the latest modern science, the ‘intelligent’ use of ‘properly designed’ solariums or sunbeds may NOT only be entirely safe, but could potentially avoid many thousands of cases of serious illness and even deaths throughout the world each year. This might even apply to you or someone close to you. It applies most particularly during the winter months, where vitamin D producing sunshine is rare, or where individuals cannot access sufficient natural UVB radiation.
Vitamin D Deficiency in New Mothers Causing Kids Speech Problems
A new study just out, adds even more weight to be the importance of people ensuring they have adequate vitamin D levels. As you know, I have been writing about this for over five years – Sunlight & Vitamin D Health – and this is another example.
The study showed that women who were vitamin D deficient had children who were more likely to have ‘significant’ problems relating to speech skills and language. They are much more likely to have difficulty gaining complex language skills and their overall speech development is impaired. I’ll say it again. If you haven’t had your vitamin D levels tested recently, please go and get a blood test ASAP. And, ensure your doing everything you can to most naturally optimise these levels.
Sun Exposure & Vitamin D – Why You Need to Get Naked at Noon?
Did you know that getting some sun at the exact time most experts tell you NOT to – in the ‘middle of the day’ – may in fact be absolutely critical for your health!
With some great media coverage and work by groups such as the Australian Cancer Council over the last few years, most of us are now aware of the widespread problems associated with vitamin D deficiency. These include most common cancers, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, bacterial and viral infections, autoimmune diseases such as asthma and multiple sclerosis, depression and many others.
However, what most people STILL don’t realise is that the commonly heard advice to get our sun exposure in either the early morning or late afternoon may greatly compromise our health.
