  • Sunlight can be useful for certain kinds of depression, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder.
  • It is wise to avoid sun burn and excess indoor tanning.
  • Solar UVB radiation (290-315nm) is needed by the body to make Vitamin D. Vitamin D must be made by the body because dietary sources are inadequate, and supplements must be used carefully.
  • Mid-day summer sun is the best source of UVB. 10-15 minutes of exposut without sunscreen is enough to generate the daily requirement of Vitamin D.
  • Diets low in fats and alcohol, and high in antioxidants, reduces the risk of melanoma by 50%.
