The aim of Health Research Forum is to develop an up-to-date public health policy based on scientific evidence. It takes time, often decades, for new scientific ideas to be accepted and assimilated, first into the general body of scientific knowledge and finally into policy. We want to reduce this time to the minimum so that benefits of research leading to a better understanding of health will become available without delay. We hope to provide policy makers with better information on which to base national health policy and individuals with better information on which to base choices about their lifestyles.

What other scientific evidence can I access about why we must have sunlight to stay healthy? 

Dr,Michael Holick:  

Michael Holick - The D-Lightful Vitamin D for Good Health ...


Considered by many to be the foremost authority on vitamin D, Dr Michael Holick (Professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine, one of the USA's top universities), recommends a daily amount of 1,000 IU is necessary to maintain a healthy level. It is very difficult to eat enough Vitamin D rich foods on a daily basis to achieve these levels. Most multi-vitamin supplements only provide 400IU of Vitamin D. In natural sunlight the word 'unprotected' is very important, as SPF creams reduce the effectiveness of the body to produce Vitamin D from UV exposure by up to 97%.
