I have been reading all along that sunlight is very beneficial for our health. The sun is a good source of vitamin D which helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the body. This vitamin is good for maintaining healthy bones and teeth and can also protect against certain diseases like cancer and type 1 diabetes. It is believed that only about 10 minutes of exposure to sunlight in the midday sun each day can help promote good health. The sun is also good for one's emotional health and that is why in countries which experience winter, some people tend not to be as upbeat as in the summer months when more hours of sunlight are experienced. I know of some people who do not like being in the sun and will do whatever they can to get as little sun as possible. It may be because they tend to feel heated when in the sun or after being exposed to the sun. While being exposed to the sun for too many hours may be harmful, it is better to take in a little sunlight every day rather than not to get any sun exposure at all. Do you think you get enough sunlight on average or do you prefer to stay out of the sun?
