Overview

This is the provocative, groundbreaking and potentially bestselling book about the powerful health benefits from the sun. Just as Dr. Atkins was ahead of the curve for years regarding his now-famous diet while mainstream doctors remained skeptical, Dr. Holick has been the leading exponent of formulated sun exposure, going against the grain of the medical establishment. While too much sun can cause wrinkles and raises other health concerns, a LACK of proper sun exposure, our primary source of Vitamin D can cause serious health problems, such as osterporosis, certain cancers, high blood pressure, Type 1 diabetes, multiple schlerosis, and depression.

Finally - a published scientist with more than 200 peer-reviewed studies and articles can help us make sense of the balance between benefits and risks associated with sun exposure. It's clear that Holick has the dermatology industry backtracking from its old dogma, and that the sun is rising on the idea that some sun, in intelligent moderation, is good for all of us.

Written by a renowned expert in Vitamin D, this book changed the way I look at sun exposure. Also recommend his latest book "The Vitamin D Solution"

I got this book because it was different. Boy, was I wrong! This book is a rant with no real science to support it. It is clear that the author is in the pocket of the tanning industry and the book is just a commercial for them. Don't waste your money too!
