After all the skin cancer warnings over the last 20 years or so, can you really blame them? People have been inundated over and over to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and to wear so much sunblock when you go outdoors that you may as well be inside.
true but the keyword is prolonged. you do not have to spend all day sitting outside to grab your dose of vitamin d. a simple 15 minutes outside of the house or work cubicle will suffice.
thats 0.01 % out of your total minutes in one day. i think someone could manage that.
of course, the darker your skin, the longer you have to be outside... cause the paler your skin the faster the absorption rate is...
True enough, but the scientists never tell you that, or people just don't understand the difference. Or that fact that you can get just as much sun exposure on a cloudy day as you can on a sunny day.
