What are the benefits of UV Exposure?

Protective Properties of UV Rays

The protective benefits of UV radiation is important to understand. Warnings about limited and sensible exposure to the sun or UV radiation are greatly exaggerated. Several researchers, most notably Dr. William Grant, have published peer-reviewed articles on the exosure of the body to ultravoilet light.

In America, increased sun exposure would result in 185,000 fewer cases of internal cancer and 30,000 fewer deaths from cancer of the breast, ovaries, colon, prostate, bladder, uterus, esophagus, rectum, and stomach. By comparison, about 7500 die each year from skin cancer. UV exposure also protects against the development of multiple sclerosis, a devastating autoimmune disease. Safe UV exposure is available through indoor tanning.
