So once again we find out that we have been lied to. Researchers are saying that Vitamin D from the sun is supposed to heal many ailments and be incredibly good for you in reasonable amounts, which I believe that most of us know. Plus the toxic chemicals that are in UV creams or sprays can cause free chemical radicals within your body, ones that were not there prior. Depending on your body and your personal make-up I am sure that an allergic reaction that leads to death is possible. I believe that anything that is given to us, that we buy off of the shelf, is shoving free chemical radicals into your bodies. We need to read labels too, that is incredibly important. Do not trust what you buy, trust you who is buying.
Regardless, things we do not need to be careful of this summer, now this is great news. I was told by my Doctor that I am allergic to the sun because I get hives. Perhaps it is the sunscreen that is being saturated into my pores by the sun that is causing that. Plus, I do get heat hives, not sure why, but the last time I got them was when I was 10 years old and now I have been getting them for the past year since I was diagnosed with FM. So, perhaps the sun isn’t the issue here.
Now go out in the sun and enjoy. Why are you here? Go outside! You are still here? Oh yeah, you have to read the article. But go outside afterwards. Okay? 🙂 Please.
Scientists reverse stance on sun and cancer: Now they admit sunlight can prevent skin cancer

(NaturalNews) Since the 1980s, physicians and cancer groups have regularly warned the public against the potential health dangers of direct sunlight on skin. As a result, many people have stayed out of the sunlight completely, covered their limbs even in warm weather or slathered themselves with UV protection products, all in the interest of lowering their risk of melanomas.
However, more recent findings indicate that this kind of nearly vampiric avoidance of the sun may not benefit your cancer odds after all.
A 2009 study by a group of Leeds University researchers found that higher levels of Vitamin D were linked to improved skin cancer survival odds. Other studies have found that Vitamin D has a connection to a strong immune response in the body. In fact, Vitamin D may hasten the death of tumor cells.
Unfortunately, most people have low levels of Vitamin D, leaving them at higher risk for a host of diseases including breast cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, cervical cancer, rickets and osteoporosis. (For more in-depth information on this, see this report: http://www.naturalnews.com/rr-sunli…)
“It’s common for the general public to have low levels of vitamin D in many countries,” said Professor Julia Newton Bishop of the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine and author of the Leeds study. “Melanoma patients tend to avoid the sun as sunburn is known to increase the risk of melanoma. We use sunshine to make vitamin D in the skin, so melanoma patients’ levels of vitamin D may be especially low.”
Bishop also noted that people can get more Vitamin D through dietary sources such as fatty fish. She points out that balance is key, as extremely high levels of Vitamin D can have a negative effect on health.
The mainstream media continues to run stories every summer warning people against the sun even two years after the Leeds study. While hours of sunbathing may be risky behavior for your long-term health, receiving a moderate amount of sunlight while out gardening or walking is actually as good for you as eating a low-fat diet and engaging in regular exercise. In fact, laying off the sunscreen may help you not only absorb sunshine into your skin to help fight tumors, but also helps you avoid the chemicals in most commercial sun blocking products. Some studies have indicated that these chemicals can actually generate harmful free radicals in the body.
So this summer, relax, and enjoy the sunshine.
