    Sunlight brightness not needed for circadian rhythm? (lightbulb brightness can be enough?)

    What's the consensus on tanning beds? How does it compare to the real thing?

    Living in the north and looking out my window today at 3 PM and it being nearly pitch black outside really made me think: how is this sustainable? Vitamin D supplements just raise the number on my labs but do absolutely nothing to me compared to sunlight. Obviously Vitamin D isn't the only thing...

    Avoiding sunlight increases colon cancer risk

    Some time ago I posted about avoiding sunlight being as bad for systemic health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. The study below corroborates that view, but with a focus on colon cancer risk and vitamin D. Namely, avoiding sunlight exposure results in much lower vitamin D, which is...

    Is There Something Wrong About How We Get Vitamin D From Sunlight? I Suspect We Do It In a Very Unnatural Way

    At noontime, when the sun's out in full force, where there's not even a shadow as the sun is directly above, I would go out and get my fill of sunshine and the vitamin D benefits of it. This is usually where the UV index is highest, and where I get the most vitamin D produced in the shortest...

    Sunlight And Aspirin Can Treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

    The link between sunlight exposure and incidence of MS is well-known and strongly pointed to a metabolic origin of the disease as early as the 1960s.
