Sun Screen or Not?

Posted by sheryl w.

While everyone goes on about how we must use sunscreen, there is also evidence that we need sun on our skin because it is a good source of vitamin D.

Nodoubt sun light is very important for us but there is only one thing that should be kept in mind and thats to use a good sunscreen lotion while going out in the sun for protection from harmful radiation.
As Vitamin D deficiency is virtually unheard of in the United States and skin cancer is the most common cancer by far, we obviously get far too much sun exposure. Sun screen needs to be used more commonly.
