Vitamin D Fears Lead to Sun Warnings Review

Warning people to stay out of the sun may have led to vitamin D deficiencies.

The British newspaper The Independent cited a confidential report from Cancer Research UK, which revealed that the charity was reconsidering its advice about avoiding the sun. The charity was responding to concerns that people were at risk of a lack of vitamin D.

According to Fox News:

“The draft document states: ‘Cancer Research UK’s SunSmart campaign encourages people to enjoy the sun safely and avoid exposures that lead to sunburn. However, for most people, sunlight is also an important source of vitamin D, which is essential for good bone health.’”
