A very interesting study from the UK shows that sunlight exposure may halt the spread of chickenpox. The intriguing part of this article is that the researchers give the credit to sunlight's ability to destroy the responsible virus on the skin. Nevertheless, the highest chickenpox outbreaks are in winter, meaning the vitmain D produced by the skin in summer may really be the protective factor. Read the ariticle and decide.
This excellent article tells us the exact opposite of what the media and dermatological community would have us believe: The best time for safe sunlight exposure is at midday because at that time, the sunlight is more direct, making possible more vitamin D production by the skin.
In the rush by dermatologists and sunscreen companies to demonize sunlight exposure as the universal cause of skin cancers, there has been a total disregard for another factor that strongly protects against or strongly promotes skin damage. That factor is what we eat.
