Lack of Sunlight Exposure Leads to Greater Cancer Rates in China

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Insitute–

 A study by Dr. Wanquing Chen and colleagues in China demonstrates that lack of sunlight leads to increasing rates of several cancers, including those of the cervix, rectum, colon, stomach and esophagus. It is good to see that sunlight and vitamin D deficiencies are now being recognized throughout the world as detriments to optimal human health.

Sunlight exposure is associated with a decreased risk of pancreatic cancer.

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Institute–

Another study has just been released that adds more evidence that sunlight exposure, far from being a carcinogen, reduces the risk of cancer. This time, sunlight exposure is shown to associate with a lowered risk of pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly. Bit by bit, the falsehoods being promulgated by the sunscare movement are exposed to the public. This is an excellent read!

Sunlight exposure and vitamin D lower risk of Multiple Sclerosis

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Institute–

This article from Pakistan corroborates what we have known for many years: Those who have the greatest sunlight exposure, and thereby the highest vitamin D levels, have the smallest risk of both the onset of MS and the exacerbations of MS that is already doing damage. When will the Sunscare movement get off the melanoma fraud and start saving lives?

A large percentage of Vietnamese children have rickets due to lack of sunlight exposure.

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Institute–

A report from a major clinic in Vietnam has reported that  an astounding 45.5 % of children who report there for checkups have rickets due to the fact that their parents keep them out of the sunlight. This is exactly the condition that would exist in the U.S. if the Sunscare movement had its way with sun “protection” for children.

More research shows the preventive power of sunlight on cancer: lymphoid malignancies

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Institute–

 

A recent study  in the journal Blood, shows a remarkable reduction of the risk of a group of cancers known as lymphoid malignancies, i.e. non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, multiple myeloma and  classical Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  Researchers in California measured exposure to sunlight among residents  in different geographic areas and compared the different categories of exposure to the risk of contracting these cancers.[i] Those residents living in the areas with the highest quartile (fourth) of sunlight exposure, when compared with those in the lowest quartile, showed a 43% reduced risk of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and a 64% reduction of risk of one of its subcategories known as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.  The risk of another subcategory, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, showed a 54% reduced risk. Multiple myeloma was also associated with a reduced risk of 43% among those living in areas with the highest quartile of sunlight exposure. Interestingly, dietary vitamin D was not associated with the risk of these cancers. The researchers stated, “These results support a protective effect of routine residential UVR exposure against lymphomagenesis through mechanisms possibly independent of vitamin D

This last finding is doubly important, since it indicates that sunlight exposure may have protective effects against cancers independent of its stimulation of vitamin D production by skin, or that the type of vitamin D produced by sunlight stimulation of skin is superior to that obtained through food or supplements.  It appears that Mother nature know best, and that sunlight, one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind, should not be ignored a as preventive therapy.

Sunlight exposure may decrease the risk of bowel diseases by more than 50%

By: Marc Sorenson, Sunlight Institute–

The evidence mounts that high levels of sunlight exposure may predict a 52% reduction in the risk of Crohn’s disease and a 38% reduction in the risk of ulcerative colitis. So why does much of the medical community still recommend that we avoid sunlight exposure?
