Benefits of UV Light



Written quotes throughout the video cover various benefits of sunshine.

Behind the production is the UV Foundation: "The UV Foundation is committed to funding educational efforts designed to increase the public awareness of the biologic effects of ultraviolet light."

Also, information on research behind the benefits of sunshine can be found in
the book by Dr. Holick, "The UV Advantage"

"In a review article published in The New England Journal of Medicine July 18th, Dr. Holick explores the nature of vitamin D deficiency and concludes it to be one of the most commonly unrecognized medical conditions, a condition that leaves millions at risk of developing not only osteoporosis and fractures but also numerous serious and often fatal diseases, including several common cancers, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases and heart disease."

So, have you had your 'sunshine' today? ^_^
