Why do you think staying out of the sun could be the reason you GET skin cancer?

by , 09 February 2015

I'm sure you're aware that being in the sun without protection is one of the leading risk factors of skin cancer.

Why then is staying out of the sun just as serious a risk?

And why then, is getting just the right amount of sun every day a necessary part of skin cancer prevention?

Well, it's all about one vitamin. A vitamin your skin makes when it comes into contact with the sun.

That's right!

Vitamin D.

It's when you have a lack of vitamin D in your system that your skin cancer risk goes up.

Here's why…

Research says a lack of vitamin D increases your skin cancer risk

You need vitamin D for many processes in your body including being able to absorb calcium, phosphate, zinc, magnesium and iron. As you can imagine, when you don’t have enough vitamin D for this, you’ll have a deficiency in these minerals too! And that can be disastrous.
The problem is, very few foods contain vitamin D. And when they do, your body has to convert them into a type of vitamin D your body can use.
It’s the same for the vitamin D your skin makes when you expose it to the UV light of the sun. Your body sends both types to your liver and it then converts it into an active and available form. The thing is, sitting in the sun is one of the easiest ways to get your daily dose. Much easier than finding foods that have it.
But with the scary stats of skin cancer still soaring, it’s not worth risking your life to get the right amount of vitamin D your body needs.
Or is it?

Experts suggest a solution to your lack of vitamin D

There’s always been a debate between doctors and dermatologists about how to get vitamin D, says the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Doctors say that sitting in the sun for five minutes three times a week can be a great way to keep your vitamin D levels up. But dermatologists say this isn’t a solution at all because skin cancer comes as a result of accumulated sun damage.
But the real problems is that your lack of vitamin D is causing your skin cancer risk to soar anyway.Did you know that not getting enough sun could be the reason you develop skin cancer
This because vitamin D also plays an essential role in the immune system.
In fact, this role of vitamin D is especially interesting in women.
A recent study looked into the main causes of melanoma by gathering data from 36,000 women between the ages of 50 and 79. After sending out questionnaires about how much vitamin D the women got, they compared it to their melanoma risk.
Interestingly, the women who were taking vitamin D supplements had a significantly lower melanoma risk than the women who didn’t take vitamin D supplements.
But there was something even more shocking about the results. The women taking the vitamin D supplements had a whopping 50% lower melanoma risk than even the women using sunscreen regularly!
Obviously we won’t advocate for you to sit in the sun and roast just to get your daily dose of vitamin D.
The key is to use common sense when it comes to what your body needs.

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...

I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.

Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!

That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").

And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks.

Don’t let a lack of vitamin D be the reason you develop skin cancer

If you do find yourself in the sun, make sure you have sunscreen on all the large surfaces of your body you may expose to harmful UV rays.
If you’re in the sun for a short time (less than 5 minutes), it may be helpful for your vitamin D levels to leave a small area of your skin exposed to sunlight.
Don’t however sit in the sun at the hottest times of the day (between 11am and 3pm) or you’re looking for trouble.
If taking vitamin D supplements seems more logical for you to do, make sure you speak to your doctor before. He’ll be able to recommend a high quality supplement and he’ll tell you whether you really need it or not once he does a blood test.
You’re luckier than some of the people in the rest of the world, though. With so much sunlight all year round, you may not need to worry about your vitamin D levels at all. This unless you spend all of your time in doors, completely out of the sun.
But it’s a good idea to know whether you do need supplemental vitamin D, because of its importance in your overall health. You should rather be sure you have enough before you suffer devastating consequences because you didn’t!
