(Natural News) Excessive sunscreen use might be playing a major role in the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and related adverse health conditions, an analysis published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association revealed. According to researchers from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University, California, vitamin D prevalence in the U.S. showed a significant increase from 45 percent to 75 percent over the last 25 years.

The research team noted that using thick, highly-protective sunscreen may be behind the reason in the prevalent vitamin D deficiency, as the chemicals block the beneficial sunlight from reaching the skin and stimulating vitamin D production. The health experts stressed that sunscreens containing SPF 15 or higher diminished vitamin D production by 99 percent. According to the research team, the vitamin provided anti-inflammatory effects and is essential in the body’s immune function. The health experts cautioned that this lack in vitamin D could lead to the onset of a host of adverse medical conditions. However, the researchers noted that simple brisk walking and eating foods high in vitamin D are enough to make up for vitamin deficiency.

While we want people to protect themselves against skin cancer, there are healthy, moderate levels of unprotected sun ex Continue reading
