Lies, Sunshine, and Vitamin D
After 30 years we find out that the fear monger and hysterical females were as nuts as usual. Sunshine is good for your health, and good for the health of children. Sunshine is so good for your health that it should be called “necessary for health.” When we are exposed to sunshine our skin produced Vitamin D. When you don't get sunshine, your Vitamin D levels drop. It turns out that Vitamin D is crucial in preventing death from cancer, and stops more skin cancer than the sunshine causes. Healthy levels of Vitamin D greatly reduce the probability of getting other kinds of cancer such as colon cancer, and it reduces heart problems.
For young women, low levels of Vitamin D greatly raises the incidence of Autism. The epidemic of children with autism over the past 30 years may be almost all related to the hysterical fear mongering that kept young women out of the sun.
Low levels of Vitamin D are also related to the increasing rates of asthma and allergies. See article. For young children, the low levels of Vitamin D also greatly increases their incidence of bone and heart disease. Adults with low Vitamin D levels have similar medical problems.
Young mothers today put our children in front of a boob tube instead of sending them out to the yard to play. The fear mongers have convinced millions of women that a child playing in the yard will probably be killed, raped, or attacked. The actual rates of crimes against children are much lower than when Bob was young. Only the fear level of stupid female head of households is much higher. So children are routinely kept indoors most of the time. When they do get allowed to go outside, often only with adult supervision, they are lathered with toxic chemical sun blockers that prevent the beneficial effects of the sun.
People with dark skin whose ancestors were from Africa or other tropical areas need more sun than people with white skin to produce the same amount of Vitamin D. A dark skinned person is out of his native climate in a northern latitude where he must be indoors much of the year. Black and dark skinned people need to spend more time outdoors than white skin people. The autism rate for children of black African mothers in northern latitudes is much higher than for their relatives back home in Africa because they get much less sunshine and therefore much less Vitamin D.
Instead of sun block chemical creams children and adults should be exposed to sunshine daily beginning every spring as soon as the weather is warm enough to take off your heavy winter coats. Begin with an hour of sunshine per day until your skin reacts by creating increased levels of natures sunblock, the “tan” color. Except for a very few of the most sensitive individuals of far northern ancestry, by midsummer we can spend much of he day in direct sunshine without getting sunburn or being over exposed. Don't try to overdo it all at once the first days of spring. Sunburn probably causes more harm than the Vitamin D prevents. You don't need to sunburn, but you do need to get plenty of sunshine.
Fear of sunshine has become so pervasive that the majority of children are now suffering from seriously low levels of Vitamin D. Fearful mothers who prevent their children from playing outside, and lazy mothers who just push them toward boob tubes all day long, are causing children to get a wide variety of crippling or fatal diseases associated with Vitamin D deficiency.
Get the kids away from the TV, the computer, the games, and get them out of the house. Fresh air and sunshine is important for children. And while you are at it, sunshine is important for good health in adults too. Go outside and take off your shirt. What is your Vitamin D level today? Have you gotten lots of sunshine exposure in the past few weeks?
And don't listen to your hysterical idiot mother or the boob tube talking heads telling you that you need sunblock.
