Latest Research

This study seeks to verify the hypothesis that the possible preventive effect of sunlight on cancer might be mediated not only by vitamin D but also by other pathways.

“In prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma other sunlight potentiated and vitamin D independent pathways, such as modulation of the immune system and the circadian rhythm, and the degradation of folic acid might play a role in reduced cancer risk”.

In this follow up study involving sun exposure with roughly 30k women in Sweden, over a 20-year span, the longer life expectancy amongst women with active sun exposure habits was related to a decrease in cardiovascular disease and noncancer/non-cardio vascular mortality, causing the relative contribution of death due to cancer to increase.

This study assessed roughly 30k women in Sweden over 20 years, to determine if those who avoided sun exposure were at higher risk of death.

“The mortality rate amongst avoiders of sun exposure was approximately twofold higher compared with the highest sun exposure group.”

This observational evidence hopefully encourages women to introduce regular sun exposure into their life.
