Dr. Paul Mason – 'Sunlight and health – from Vitamin D to Fish oil'







Dr Paul Mason obtained his medical degree with honours from the University of Sydney, and also holds degrees in Physiotherapy and Occupational Health. He is a Specialist Sports Medicine and Exercise Physician.

Dr Mason developed an interest in low carbohydrate diets in 2011. Since then he has spent hundreds of hours reading and analysing the scientific literature.

For the last three years, Dr. Mason has been applying this knowledge in treating metabolic and arthritis patients who have achieved dramatic and sustained weight loss and reductions in joint pain.

Life cannot exist without sunlight. Sunlight is healthy for you. It gives you more energy, you get sick less, it helps build stronger bones and teeth, helps the immune system and the list goes on. It also gives you the best form of vitamin D. Vitamin D protects you from many diseases; and no, you don’t get cancer from sunlight. You get cancer because you’re not healthy. Eating poorly causes toxins in the body and as they come to the skin’s surface they can turn to melanoma. Then what about overexposure? OK, eat healthy. Eat greens as it will protect the body from the inside just as chlorophyll protects plants. God doesn’t make mistakes; we are designed to be in the sun.

Researchers in Sweden followed 30,000 women over 20 years who avoided sunbathing during the summer are twice as likely to die as those who sunbath every day….

Abstract. Results.There were 2545 deaths amongst the 29 518 women who responded to the initial questionnaire. We found that all-cause mortality was inversely related to sun exposure habits. The mortality rate amongst avoiders of sun exposure was approximately twofold higher compared with the highest sun exposure group, resulting in excess mortality with a population attributable risk of 3%.

Sunscreen causes skin cancer.
http://www.jabfm.org/content/24/6/735.full
Abstract. Many primary care providers advise patients to use sunscreen as a means to reduce their risk for skin cancer, especially cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM). Despite the availability and promotion of sunscreen for decades, the incidence of CMM continues to increase in the U.S. at a rate of 3% per year. There currently is little evidence that sunscreens are protective against CMM. A number of studies suggest that the use of sunscreen does not significantly decrease the risk CMM, and may actually increase the risk of CMM and sunburns….

Vitamin D protects the body from Multiple sclerosis, diabetes, …and many other diseases

Abstract…….This review considers the studies that have shown a wide range health benefits from sun/UV exposure. These benefits include among others various types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer disease/dementia, myopia and macular degeneration, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. The message of sun avoidance must be changed to acceptance of non-burning sun exposure sufficient to achieve serum 25, OH, D, concentration of 30 ng/mL or higher in the sunny season and the general benefits of UV exposure beyond those of vitamin D.

Diet and lifestyle cause cancer
http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercauses/dietandphysicalactivity/diet-and-physical-activity
Research has shown that poor diet and not being active are 2 key factors that can increase a person’s cancer risk. Besides quitting smoking, some of the most important things you can do to help reduce your cancer risk are:
Get to and stay at a healthy weight throughout life.
Be physically active on a regular basis.
Make healthy food choices with a focus on plant-based foods.
The evidence for this is strong. The World Cancer Research Fund estimates that about 20% of all cancers diagnosed in the US are related to body fatness, physical inactivity, excess alcohol consumption, and/or poor nutrition, and thus could also be prevented.
Sunlight has many benefits…oxygenates skin, lowers blood pressure, wounds and bones heal faster, improves eyesight…, and much more.
People that get lots of sun….gain many benefits….

The sun’s rays provide warmth and light that enhance your general feeling of well-being and stimulate blood circulation. Some UV radiation is essential to the body as it stimulates the production of vitamin D. Vitamin D has an important function in increasing calcium and phosphorus absorption from food and plays a crucial role in skeletal development, immune function and blood cell formation. Five to 15 minutes of casual sun exposure of hands, face and arms two to three times a week during the summer months is sufficient to keep your vitamin D levels high.
