Adequate Sun Exposure No Guard Against Low Vitamin D

In many people, vitamin D levels can remain low despite abundant exposure to sunlight, research shows. Inadequate sun exposure is often blamed for the high prevalence of low vitamin D status, the authors explain, but the truth of this has been unclear.

I think this has already been posted
The Research t is only a very small sample and details on the racial background of the participants aren't there.

it is hard to get anyone to state an optimum sun level. This depends on so many factors-religion, latitude, age, occupation ethnic background etc
o we are left confused do you get skin cancer because of too much sun or other cancers because you don't get enough
maybe supliments and high sun screens are the answer?
A belt of sunlight on mushrooms just before harvest would help too as this increase D levels many times.

Yes, you are right Michael. This research is only narrow because it does not include different people from different races and countries in the world. But it is a fact that Too much SUN exposure and burns are the cause of Skin Cancer.
thanks for sharing the link about the mushrooms.
in peace

Thanks for your support Tania.
the recent research on vit D has left Australians in particular in a bad place. Our kids wear neck to knee swimmers. Sun blocks are 100+ We have a huge hole in the Ozone layer
We have a growing Islamic population etc

This is a problem Health Authorities will have to address and soon!
