Sources of Vitamin D – which are the safest? – Find out why … | The Tanning Blog

Sources of Vitamin D – which are the safest? – Find out why … | The Tanning Blog | Tanningnews | Scoop.it
Sources of Vitamin D - which are the safest? The magic benefits of Vitamin D for our health are by now well known. But which are the best sources of Vitamin D?
Karl G's insight:

The choice of vitamin D source depends on which level you are aiming for. If you follow the advice from your Government and believe that vitamin D is only good for strong bones, you might be able to fill up your stock with food and fortified food sources.

If you, however, believe that our original level (before we started to avoid the sun and slather on sunscreen) is what you need, you can forget about food as a source of vitamin D and go for UV-exposure and/or supplements.

The preventive and healing effect of permanent, non-burning, UV-exposure probably goes far beyond the "mere" benefits of vitamin D.

Karl G's insight:

FDA and AAD (The American Association of Dermatologists) revs up their efforts to kill the indoor tanning business. But how big are really the risks of getting malign melanoma from using sunbeds? 30 million people in America use sunbeds without dying from skin cancer. Indoor tanning can't be isolated as a risk factor. But if it could, and statistically, the risk would be 1 in 33,000, placing it somewhere between the risk of dying in an air travel accident and legal executions.

Karl G's insight:

The local governments in Australia are guilty of a serious miscarriage of justice when they are banning indoor based upon anecdotal evidences and PR campaigns paid by Big Cosmetics and Big Pharma.

Is The New Initiative By CDC Regarding Skin Cancer Prevention Doomed Already From The Start? - The Tanning Blog

Is The New Initiative By CDC Regarding Skin Cancer Prevention Doomed Already From The Start? - The Tanning Blog | Tanningnews | Scoop.it
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are collecting information from the public on skin cancer prevention through the reduction of UV exposure. This assumption makes their initiative doomed to fail already before it has started.
Karl G's insight:

Are the people at the governmental organization CDC insane? At least it seems like they are according to Einstein's definition when they expect a different result by proposing to continue to do more of what they have done during the last 30 years to battle skin-cander with sun-avoidance.

Karl G's insight:

A very readable book about the author's own experience and result from extremely high doses of vitamin D3. However, it focus too much on how high dose vitamin D you can safely TAKE and not on how much you need to MAKE (in your skin by exposure to UV-light) in order to keep a permannet optimum blood level.

Sunbeds can be better sources of vitamin D than sunshine but are being demonized by the established illness-maintenance system whith the aim to keep you sick and just alive enough to be dependet on their remedies - not healthy and without the need for expensive medicines.

The Earth is Flat! The Sun Rotates Around The Earth! You Can’t Get Vitamin D From A Sunbed! In a case which seems more to belong to the era of the Spanish inquisition, the Houston-based indoor tanning salon chain “Darque Tan” agreed to pay 141,520 US$ to the State of Texas for having “deployed an advertising campaign that improperly claimed that customers at its 60 indoor tanning facilities would benefit from increased Vitamin D levels – which the company said would reduce cancer risks.

Vitamin D, Sun, Skin Cancer - Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine | Tanningnews | Scoop.it
Centuries ago, when Vikings and other European seafarers took to the high seas for years at a time, they pioneered new trade routes and they mostly died of skin cancer. Native American Indians, living mostly outdoors, also mostly died of skin cancer. What? You never heard that? Right. Because it didn’t happen. Here are a few things that really did...
Karl G's insight:

Excellent article and a positive surprise that a medical institution actually cares about peoples health and not only about how to satisfy their sponsors from Big Pharma.


Even if I am the first to agree that cosmetic giants invented the sun-scare in the early 1980-ies, let’s not forget the fact that most cancer councils, that now are driving early skin cancer screening campaigns, are sponsored by pharmaceutical giants.


The reason is obvious. Regular and moderate sun-exposure is their biggest competitor. Their sales would drastically decrease if every person had enough exposure to ultraviolet light. The Vitamin D level, most likely only one of many healthy products of sun-exposure, is perhaps also an indicator that we get enough sun.


All UVR are, however, not created equal. In this article, I describe the different action spectra for Vitamin D, pigmentation and erythema:

Following the debate about banning teenagers from indoor tanning, the proponents use some very weird statistics when they try to prove their case.

Book review: Athlete’s Edge – Faster Quicker Stronger with Vitamin D | The Tanning Blog

Book review: Athlete’s Edge – Faster Quicker Stronger with Vitamin D | The Tanning Blog | Tanningnews | Scoop.it

Book review: “Athlete’s Edge – Faster Quicker Stronger with Vitamin D.”
I’ve just finished reading (twice) the book “Athlete’s Edge – Faster Quicker Stronger with Vitamin D” by John Cannell. The author is the founder and executive director of the Vitamin D Council and what he doesn’t know about vitamin D is probably not worth knowing.
Dr. Cannell gives you so much useful information about vitamin D; what it does for our health; the reasons for why most of us are deficient; which blood levels are natural; and the how we should reach those natural levels in the way Mother Nature intended it, that you just have to read the book at least twice in order to grasp it all.

Karl G's insight:

Unfortunately, I think the title, “Athlete’s Edge – Faster Quicker Stronger with Vitamin D“, doesn’t do the book justice since it leads you to believe that this book is only for athletes.

In fact this book is for everyone who wants to live a healthy life even if your present peak athletic performance is to get up from the bed in the morning or to tie your shoe laces.
