Laurie Winn Carlson shines light on the health benefits of sun exposure and vitamin D. This easy read reviews the history of vitamin D and puts into perspective how humans have always depended upon the sun for their vitamin D requirement and how pollution and negative attitudes about sun exposure have resulted in an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. She provides anecdotes about some of the nonspecific symptoms associated with vitamin D deficiency and the dramatic improvement that can occur in the symptoms by simply correcting the deficiency. The reader will be enlightened by the historical perspective and how our sun-phobic attitudes have resulted in this insidious vitamin D deficiency.-
