Sun Exposure - Good or Bad?
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
 Rev. 8/29/2013

Many reputable doctors and scientists challenge the modem myth that sunlight is dangerous to human health. The sun was once used as a general tonic to heal almost everything and man has run naked on this planet under the sun for centuries. The sun provides the basis for ALL LIFE on earth. The sun is the source of energy for all plants, and indirectly all animals. If the sun causes cancer, man wouldn't be here today. Contrary to popular belief, sunbathing actually helps heal cancer of the skin while sun block increases cancer risk.

Direct sunlight helps the body heal all wounds and injuries and helps overcome virtually any illness. Dr. Carl Hoffminster wrote that soldiers in World War II healed and survived much better when their open wounds and broken bones were exposed to sunlight. The current propaganda against sunlight and promoting chemical rich sunscreen products is part of a great cancer fact cover-up. Panicked into avoiding sunlight, humans are now dying in our thousands from diseases linked to vitamin D (sunlight vitamin) deficiencies. Despite the truth, the propaganda exaggerations and warnings keep marking on for profit, money and power.

According to the National Cancer Institute, lifetime exposure to sunlight may reduce the risk of some of the most common types of cancer. In an analysis of death certificates from 24 states over an 11-year period, the NCI researchers found that people who lived in the sunniest parts of the country, and those exposed to the most sunlight through their jobs, had significantly lower rates of breast and colon cancer than control subjects. The scientists identified cases through a database maintained by the NCI, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the National Center for Health Statistics. The data was collected from 24 states from 1984 through 1995, and includes information on occupation, state of residence at birth and at death, and cause of death. The researchers took significant measures to ensure accuracy of their data. They included only people who were born and died in states in the same solar radiation range. And they classified farmers in their own occupational category, separate from other outdoor jobs, as they have been shown to have higher overall rates of certain types of cancer. They also narrowed down the cases substantially with a long list of exclusions.

Even after all those adjustments, the results were compelling. Overall, people who lived in the highest solar radiation range (in states like Arizona, Hawaii, Florida, and Texas) had significantly less risk of dying of breast, ovarian, prostate, or colon cancer than those who lived in the lowest range (states like Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Washington). The occupational difference was most significant with respect to cases of breast and colon cancer; across all levels of solar radiation, people who worked outside had 20-25% less risk of these two types of cancer. The benefits of outside work weren't attributable to the amount of hard labor. Even after the researchers adjusted for level of physical activity, the reduction in risk remained. In their discussion, the NCI researchers theorize that sunlight offers cancer protection through its contribution of vitamin D. Recent laboratory tests have shown that vitamin D can slow or halt the proliferation of breast and colon cancer cells.

Benefits of sunlight for human health
While it is prudent to avoid burning [Kennedy et al., 2003] or excess tanning from solar or indoor ultraviolet radiation (UVR), it should be realized that solar UVB radiation (290-315 nm) is the primary source of vitamin D for most Americans and Europeans. Dietary sources are inadequate and supplements should be used carefully.

Mid-day summer sun is the best source of UVB, since minimal exposure times are required, and the UVB to UVA (315-400 nm) ratio is highest. If using sunscreen, it's best to get 10-15 minutes of exposure without sunscreen to generate a day's worth of vitamin D.

With respect to melanoma and other skin cancer, the following points are important
- First, while UVR generates free radicals that can do some of the damage, dietary antioxidants and skin pigmentation are nature's way of fighting free radicals. A recent paper by Millen et al. [2004] reported that diets high in antioxidants and low in fats and alcohol can reduce the risk of melanoma by about 50%. Smoking is also a risk factor for non-melanoma skin cancer.
- Second, occupational exposure to UVR is associated with reduced risk of melanoma [Kennedy et al., 2003].
- The health benefits of UVB through production of vitamin D are considerable, with more benefits being recognized at a rapid pace. My work indicates that over 20,000 Americans die prematurely annually from insufficient UVB/vitamin D [Grant, 2002]. It is estimated that half of those with multiple sclerosis in the U.S. would not have MS if they had as much UVB exposure as those living in the southern states.

Sunlight and natural vitamin D are vital for not only optimal health but bone health, prevention of autoimmune diseases, cancers, cardiovascular disease and many other common illness and diseases currently near epidemic levels

Sunlight is not just important it is a vital part of nature and human health. In fact, there would be no life on earth or anywhere ells without it. Falling into the profit, money, power and control propaganda trap of avoiding sunlight can have serious ill health consequences. Ample scientific fact verifies these facts. Sunlight is part of nature and a vital requirement to maintain optimal health and vitality. Get regular direct sunlight to regain and maintain optimal health.

HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.

"Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

Important understanding
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

   Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
requires personal excellence,
advances positive action,
strengthens personal power,
promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.
