Balanced sun exposure essential for health Document Transcript

  • 1. Balanced Sun Exposure Essential for Health, Experts Say Sun exposure is important for one’s health, medical experts say, citing its vital role in maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D. There are a number of ways that people may keep their bones healthy like by doing low- impact physical activity to keep bones strong to maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D.Patricia Ireland and her daughter-in-law Ronita Barratt both live ondifferent sides of the world and both have had different reactions tosun exposure. Patricia Ireland lives in Ormskirk, Lancashire andhas osteoporosis. She has had over 20 fractures in the last 10 yearsand only found out last year that she was vitamin-D-deficient. Thiswas possibly attributed to her living in Lancashire’s climate, whichis overcast most of the year which might help explain hercondition. She’s started going outside and exposing her face, armsand hands in the sun for 15 minutes to increase her vitamin Dlevels. It’s clear that adequate sun exposure is important for ourbody to produce vitamin D.On the other side of the world Patricia’s daughter-in-law Ronita,who lives in Australia, has had an active outdoors life since shewas young. She noticed an unexplained mole and had emergencysurgery to have it removed. The melanoma was believed to beattributed to her active outdoor living.
  • 2. In the UK, Salford Royal Hospital is conducting a study on 75volunteers to determine how much exposure to the sun isconsidered a balanced amount. Sun exposure is important for thebody to produce adequate amounts but too much could lead tocomplications hence the importance of this study, according to thestudy authors.Experts determine that we only get 10 percent of our recommendeddaily requirement of vitamin D from the food we eat and themajority is produced by our bodies exposed to the sun. If the rightamount of exposure to the sun could be determined it would be agreat benefit for everyone’s health.If you want to learn more about osteoporosis and its treatmentssuch as taking Fosamax, readers may find more resources online.
