Vitamin D

This is great to see yet another positive article on vitamin D. The message needs to get out there, it's vital to people's health. I just can't wait until I see the article urging people to go out in the sun to get their vitamin D because it's the best source for it. Vitamin D levels are at an all time low among Americans and Canadians and I feel it has a lot to do with the whole sun scare started by dermatologists and sunscreen companies. In the end those two are not concerned about your health, all they're doing is hurting you by urging you to stay out of the sun unless you slather yourself with sunscreen multiple times a day. Vitamin D is on almost every cell of your body, you need it to stay healthy, just like you need the sun. Connect the dots people.
