********************HEALTH IS SUNSHINE**************
While Doctors are telling you that sunshine is horribly detrimental to your health and that it causes horrible cancers To break out all over, so what do they want us to do? Use lots of SUNBLOCK!!!!
Yet, recent information is coming to light that sunlight is very beneficial and even essential to life. It prevents cancers and colds and flus, it lifts our spirits and helps control autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis and Crohn’s disease. It builds strong bones and teeth...and while they sell you calcium to help your bones do they tell you to lay off the sunscreen to make use of Nature's calcium absorber?
Recent studies have found that sunlight can help protect you from cancer of the:*breast *colon *ovary *bladder *womb *stomach *prostate gland
The sun also provides us with our main source of vitamin D. Scientists have long been aware that this nutrient strengthens our bones and muscles and boosts the immune system.UVB converts ergosterol in the skin (a naturally occurring higher alcohol belonging to the steroid family) into vitamin D.
Ten minutes of daily exposure to sunlight will supply us with all the vitamin D that we need. The principal function of this vitamin is to promote calcium absorption in the gut and calcium transfer across cell membranes. This contributes to strong bones and a contented nervous system.
Low vitamin D is associated with several autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis and Crohn’s disease. Recent laboratory experiments suggest that vitamin D can also prevent the growth and spread of cancerous tumours.Sunshine can cheer you up. Apart from the obvious positive associations we have with a sunny day, the sun can alter your mood chemically and even prevent depression. The onset of spring gives thousands of people relief from 'seasonal affective disorder' or SAD. This miserable condition is a suppression of serotonin experienced by many who are deprived of sunlight during the dreary winter months.
Sunlight also stimulates the pineal gland - a tiny pea-sized organ found in the base of the brain. Sometimes known as ‘the third eye’, the pineal gland produces certain types of chemicals called 'tryptamines'. One type of tryptamine, melatonin, keeps our body clock aware of night and day and the changing seasons.
expert doctors warn us to avoid almost any exposure to these potentially damaging rays – the sun’s radiation is known to suppress our immune system, give us cancer, and cause us premature aging.
However, there is a dilemma: we need this form of radiant energy for good health – in fact, without it our bodies become diseased with severe bone deformities (rickets). Most recently, research has shown that without the sun’s life-giving energy we are at thirty times greater risk of death from cancer.
Everyone feels better when the sun comes out. In addition to the cosmetic effects of tanning – making people more satisfied with their appearance – sunlight causes people to feel more active, energetic, balanced, strengthened, and less nervous.1 Many people can identify with the low-sunlight, winter depression symptoms of fatigue, lowered motivation, sleepiness, increased appetite, weight gain, irritability, and decreased sociability.2 Nicely summarized, sunshine is health and happiness.
Sunlight triggers an increase in the feel-good brain chemical serotonin. Serotonin controls sleep patterns, body temperature and your sex drive, and also lifts your mood and wards off depression.
Some people are extra sensitive to the lack of sunshine in the winter – so much so that they can suffer real depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Prescription drugs like Prozac stimulate the brain to produce more serotonin but many SAD sufferers usually resort to an artificial light box instead as Prozac can have unpleasant side effects...How safe is spending time in the sun? Well, it is perfectly safe to stay in the sunshine until your skin has a healthy glow. Obviously it does no good to stay in the sun unprotected and for too long, but the anti-sun lobby has gone a bit too far the other way – and some people have even been showing signs of vitamin D deficiency as they spend all their time avoiding the sun.
The key word here is MODERATE. Sun therapy works on health when you go about it in a safe and controlled way. This means building up exposure slowly and gradually. It does not mean throwing caution to the wind and allowing your poor body to sizzle!
The Sunshine Vitamin that is really a hormone
Additionally, it controls the body's master gland, the pituitary, which secretes many essential hormones. The hypothalamus initiates the body's stress response, affects our emotions and controls immune functions. Significantly, our "body clock" is also located in tiny centers in the hypothalamus. Our body clock-controlled circadian rhythms are the 24 hour cycles of light and darkness. These light-sensitive rhythms are biological, imposed upon us by Mother Nature.
So, anything that disrupts these rhythms (like inadequate sunlight) has a far-reaching impact on our body's ability to function properly. This explains why, since sunlight has been shown to be the most effective regulator of the body clock, it is also the quickest method of recovering from jet lag.
Sunlight also triggers the body to make its own vitamin D, which is crucial to health. Vitamin D not only makes strong bones and healthy teeth, but it keeps the immune system working. Studies have shown that exposing the body to sunlight or even artificial ultra-violet light- increases the number of white cells in the blood.
See WHY DO WE GET COLDS AND FLU IN WINTER? and more on Vitamin D
Yes, Vitamin D, but more importantly the Vitamin D your body makes from sunlight, knocks out your susseptabilty to colds and flus.
Is sunscreen dangerous?
the use of sunscreen chemicals may be increasing the incidence of cancer and that sunlight exposure may actually decrease human cancer rates and improve your health.
It now appears that many heavily-used chemical sunscreens may actually increase cancers by virtue of their free radical generating properties. And more insidiously, many commonly used sunscreen chemicals have strong estrogenic actions that may cause serious problems in sexual development and adult sexual function, and may further increase cancer risks.
It is not that these compounds were ever viewed as benign substances. Organic chemists have been long aware of the dangers of compounds in chemical sunscreens. Such chemicals are widely used to start free radical reactions during chemical synthesis. These chemicals are the dangerous types that one carefully keeps away from your skin while working in a laboratory. To use them, you mix them into a combination of other chemicals, then flash the mixture with an ultraviolet light. The ultraviolet absorbing chemicals then generate copious amounts of free radicals that initiated the desired chemical reactions
As for me, I'm taking D-3, it's really not that pricey for the benefits especially here in the frozen North. but Sunshine is best. Also I eat lots of raw bright-colored veggies and make a nice juice twice a day of the same veggies, I'm feeling so much better my health is more rapidly returning since I've started on this new regimen less than three weeks ago. The first week showede nearly a return t non-diabetic status. In fact I have made more progress in the last few weeks than I did all last year on my reversing diabetes diet. It is so worth changing my normal diet for.

Engineers vs. Accoutants
Three engineers and three accountants are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single ticket.
"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" Asks an accountant.
"Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.
They all board the train. The accountants take their respective seats but all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "Ticket, please."
The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.
The accountants saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all.
"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" Says one perplexed accountant.
"Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.
When they board the train the three accountants cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby.
The train departs.
Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the accountants are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."
A man was sitting alone in his office one night when a genie popped up out of his ashtray and said, "And what will your third wish be?"
The man looked at the genie and said, "Huh? How can I be getting a third wish when I haven't had a first or second wish yet?"
"You have had two wishes already," the genie said, "but your second wish was for me to put everything back the way it was before you made your first wish. Thus, you remember nothing; because everything is the way it was before you made any wishes. You now have one wish left."
"Okay," said the man, "I don't believe this, but what the heck. I wish I were irresistible to women."
"Funny," said the genie as it granted his wish and disappeared forever. "That was your first wish, too!"
