There’s a light at the end of the tunnel – because in less than two weeks, we’ll hit the shortest day of the year.
You know what that means, right?
The days will start to get longer from Dec. 21, with a few extra minutes of sun every single day.
And I’d like to urge you to get out there and use them all up.
Heck, get out there today and every day – even when the sun makes only a brief appearance in the sky – because mainstream researchers have confirmed the warning you’ve read right here in the Daily Dose over the years.
Scientists now say the next big health threat facing Americans isn’t Zika, Ebola, or flu.
It’s lack of sun!
The analysis of more than 100 studies finds that Americans are falling well short of the sun exposure they need – leading to a massive public health crisis where low vitamin D levels contribute to some 13 percent of all U.S. deaths!
Could you be next?
If you’re following mainstream advice and hiding indoors, you certainly could be – because the study estimates that some 70 percent of Americans are missing out on D due to lack of sun exposure.
Those low levels could cause or contribute to cancer… heart disease… dementia… diabetes… and macular degeneration, one of the leading causes of blindness in seniors.
And vitamin D is just ONE of the benefits of sun!
When you get out and soak up some rays, you body cranks nitric oxide, which helps keep your arteries open.
Yes, the sun literally keeps your blood flowing.
But most people aren’t getting nearly enough exposure, and the researchers are now urging that the sun-avoiding mainstream medical advice be changed “immediately.”
Now, let’s be clear: There’s not a snowball’s chance in summer this will change “immediately,” because NOTHING changes “immediately” in mainstream medicine.
But make no mistake. This is a landmark moment in public health – because the advice they’re urging officials to push instead is EXACTLY THE SAME as the advice you’ve found right here in the Daily Dose.
The researchers say Americans should get out under the sun every day – and the only “limit” on exposure is to make sure you don’t get burned.
While the researchers back some sunscreen use, they’re also pushing for new labels to warn consumers that sunscreen also blocks vitamin D and that this stuff ISN’T proven to cut the risk of melanoma, the deadly form of skin cancer.
Yes, friend, if all this happens – if not “immediately” then at least “eventually” – Americans will get to see something even rarer than the sun.
They’ll see a return to common sense!
I’ll have more on the benefits of vitamin D coming up in a message later today. Keep an eye on your inbox… because it’s an important new study that every senior needs to see.
