WHAT’S THE CHEAPEST WAY TO LOWER YOUR RISK OF BREAST CANCER BY 25%??
It should come as no surprise that the answer is maintaining adequate Vit D levels. I’ve said it time and time again that the current culture of slapping on SPF 80 to walk to the car has produced more harm than any other public health recommendation (with maybe the exception of 3 servings of dairy…). Vit D is a hormone, NOT a vitamin. The levels of deficiency are of epidemic levels and yet we still hedge on changing the recommended daily allowances. Look at your ancestors. There was no sunscreen. No SPF cosmetics. No hiding out in our houses. No glass (some concern that UVA penetrating glass breaks down Vit D forming in the skin). No particulate matter in the air (blocks UVB penetration). No showering at night (washes off Vit D being produced). Our bodies were designed for high levels of sun exposure and higher levels of Vit D.
