RICHARD HOBDAY




CHAPTER 3:

HOW SUNLIGHT CAN PREVENT SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS

This chapter explains the serious health problems you may suffer from if you don't get enough vitamin D from the sun. These include:
  1. Breast cancer
  2. Colon cancer
  3. Diabetes
  4. Elevated blood pressure
  5. Heart disease
  6. Multiple sclerosis
  7. Ovarian cancer
  8. Osteomalacia
  9. Osteoporosis
  10. Prostate cancer
  11. Psoriasis
  12. Rickets
  13. Tooth decay
  14. Tuberculosis

There is evidence that vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency is far more widespread that was once thought to be the case. Each of the medical conditions above are related to vitamin D levels in the body and which are largely dependent on exposure to the sun.
