The UV Advantage: New Medical Breakthroughs Reveal Powerful Health Benefits From Sun Exposure and Tanning

The UV Advantage: New Medical Breakthroughs Reveal Powerful Health Benefits From Sun Exposure and Tanning Lowest used price: $5.80
Author: Ph.D., MD. Michael F. Holick

Can sunshine, now shunned by so many who fear skin cancer and wrinkles, save many more lives than it harms? Most definitely, says the leading expert in the field, Dr. Michael F. Holick, a professor of medicine, dermatology, physiology, and biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Holick, who discovered the active form of Vitamin D, has pulled together an impressive body of evidence in support of his advice that no one should be, as he puts it, a "sunphobe," or, for that matter, a sun worshiper. He has concluded that relatively brief but unfettered exposure to sunshine or its equivalent several times a week can help to ward off a host of debilitating diseases, including osteoporosis, hypertension, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, and cancers of the colon, prostate, and breast.
