Health experts urge regular sunbathing without sun cream.
In Britain recently, seven health organizations - including Cancer Research UK and the National Osteoporosis Society - made a joint statement in which they urged that the population had more of the sun.
For decades, was warned of the possible dangers of direct sunlight. Now, however, several studies refute the assumption that the sun is dangerous and outright instead show their vital importance to human health.
So now agree the health experts agree that human's regular sun exposure for adequate vitamin D formation and thus for its health require urgent - and that without the sun exposure by sun cream and sun cream are blocked.
Sunscreens lead to vitamin D deficiency.
The constant warnings about the sun have brought millions of people to stay out of the sun or einzucremen before going into the fresh air, at least with sun blockers. The use of sunscreens and sun block has slightest two drawbacks: First, the organism with the chemicals in the sunscreen -loaded and secondly, the blocking of solar radiation leads to the fact that the body no vitamin D can be formed.
The organism is, after all or dependent in large part by a vitamin D intake from diet. Vitamin D is a part, but mentioned at most in very tiny doses in food and the other preferably in such foods are now eaten rarely or only in small quantities (e.g., fatty fish and liver). Consequently, the vitamin D supplies are barely covered food alone. A chronic Vitamn D deficiency is the result.
Vitamin D deficiency promotes the development of lifestyle diseases.
In the March 2010 issue of the journal Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism was a study published ; unbelievable 59 percent of the population in industrialized countries of a vitamin D deficiency should suffer after. The lead investigator, Dr. Richard Kremer of Health Center of Mcgill University in Montreal, Canada said:
An abnormal vitamin D level is associated with a variety of diseases.
These include cancer, osteoporosis and diabetes, as well as cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune diseases (e.g. Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, etc.).
Vitamin D helps weight loss.
In Dr. Kremer's study also showed very clearly the link between a lack of vitamin D and the accumulation of body fat. In other words, sunlight supports the reduction of body fat and thus weight loss in overweight individuals.
Vitamin D activates the immune system.
Further research proved the influence of vitamin D on the human immune system. Professor Carsten Geisler of the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Copenhagen in recent studies showed that the T-cells are the immune system without vitamin D is inactive and therefore, offer little or no protection against pathogens such as viruses.
T cells belong to the exact immune response of the body; that is, they will defuse a very specific pathogen or alien cells were systematically trained. However, they can become active only when vitamin D is in the bloodstream. Simply then start the T-cells to detect the intruders and ensure their destruction.
Several times a week in the sun!
So it's worth many times over when we get back more often and above all, enjoy the sun regularly.
Some messages and messages on the solar radiation in the past were too negative.
Professor Rona Mackie said of the British Association of Dermatologists in the BBC news.
He suggests several times a week held for 10 to 15 minutes without sunscreen and easy to go to the sun. These moderate sunbathing can be sure of the vitamin D formation and also no goes to skin cancer risks.
