The sun’s light is responsible for life on Earth. However, too much of our sun’s energy can burn our skin and increase skin cancer as we’ve all been told. In addition, excess UV is known to accelerate development of cataracts in our eyes and most likely macula degeneration as we age.
The sunlight though stimulates our bodies to produce Vitamin D which is necessary for bone health and development. With this mind, we need to strike a balance between what is harmful exposure to our sun’s rays and what is excess.
Another recent study in the U.K. connects adequate exposure to sunlight to keeping our blood pressure healthy. With this study, it becomes even more necessary to learn what balance our bodies need with regards to UV exposure.
