Medical evidence or (Who didn't know this?)
« on: April 06, 2016, 01:37:38 AM »
We have known for years that being naked outside is good for your mental and emotional health. It is also good for your physical health, you get exercise and you skin produces vitamin D. A necessary vitamin for strong bones and teeth.

Well the medical community is presenting research findings that show vitamin D, the "Sunshine Vitamin", is good for more than your bones and teeth. It's also good for your heart. See here, here, and here.

How much more does evidence is needed to show all the benefits of being outside in the outfit God gave you. Apparently, everything needed for sustaining life is available by just stepping outside in your birthday suit.

There have been quite the number of studies done over the years. Not only the absorption of the D vitamin but the fact a person is outdoors. To me that would mean some sort of exercise like walking or even gardening. What we need is a study using naturists as a control group to prove that getting the vitamin naturally is better than supplements.

... and as a started for 10 ... see here

Perhaps we also need a study to see if naturists have a greater absorption of vitamin D than non-naturists, although I expect that the extra amount absorbed due the lack of a cossie is pretty small.

My point is that naturists get more exposure due to the lifestyle. Instead of just being on the beach it is more of an all day everyday thing. Time and weather permitting.

Sorry to rain on anyone's parade, but let's not forget that sunlight is also bad for the skin, and you can die from its effects. In fact skin cancer is becoming more common; naturists should be the first people to think about how much sun they should be exposed to!

While I totally agree that we should be sensible about our exposure to the sun, I also believe that there are a few factors which also need taking into consideration.

Firstly there is a tendency for naturists to have a more regular exposure throughout the year with the result that the skin's natural protections are likely to be more effective, resulting in less burning.

Secondly I believe there is a positive correlation between sudden short term holiday exposure and skin cancer.

Also I strongly suspect that sun protection creams may also have a carcinogenic effect and that in many cases the casual user does not apply it properly thus reducing its effectiveness.

Putting these factors together I am convinced that naturists tend to be less liable to skin cancers than textiles, but of course this may be simply my prejudice.

That might be an interesting study - do naturists have a different rate of skin cancers to non-naturists, but then define naturist - indoor only, once a week, every day, only on holiday, and how long in the sun etc. ectc.

I would be curious to a point to see the connection between skin cancers of textile verses non-textile. But one would also have to consider geography. How could you compare a naturist who lives full time in a nudist enviorment in Florida to say a person in England? Where as the Florida resident has almost year round weather to be naked winter plays havoc on northern dwellers. Despite speculation I feel these types of studies will not be done any time soon.

Avoiding the sun is like a bad poker bet.  True, you avoid to some extent the "slight" risk of contracting skin cancer (something that is easily curable).  But instead, you have much great risk of contracting high risk internal cancers and other serious diseases.

The makeup of the skin is also a factor. "Ol Red" the pink guy, compared to the folks who live in equatorial regions naked all mixes inbetween.

Also, the health of the system, the skin. I have noticed how sauna and scrapping has changed the character of my skin. The efficiency is improved as modern toxins and clogging are removed, thus the manufacture of "D" can take place to a higher degree. Intake of good cholesterol seems to be a factor.

There are many different studies with diverse aspects converging for our home team. Basically "D" come from skin and diet, "D" good. Get lot of "D".

The cancers mostly come where parts commonly get red and burn, the edge of tanlines.

It isn't just about 'skin' cancer. Studies show that those with frequent exposure to sun are overall healthier, despite being more prone to skin cancer, which is not generally the serious kind, melanoma. Those with the lowest levels of exposure are less healthy and are MORE likely to get melanoma.

Avoiding burning is clearly important. Regular exposure provides much natural protection.

Also, studies have shown that the health benefits of exposure to sunlight go far beyond those you get from vit C. Exposure to sun is the most effective way of increading vit C levels, but it is the only way of getting the other benefits, at least on current knowledge. These include mood and mental health.

Back in the old days on the ambulance we had a term "red haired skin". Besides usually the hardest IV sticks they were also prone to severe sunburns. Working the medical tent at a music festival we dealt with quite a few inebriated, sunburned,dehydrated individuals that weekend. Some of the most severe cases were red headed freckled women who required hospitalization due to the skin surface involved.

My mother was one of those skin types and later in life developed a few lesions that were removed and biopsyed. Thankfully, none were serious but that is why I visit a dermatologist yearly. I take after my father with more of an eastern European darker features. Two of my sisters however remain porcelain goddesses.

I don't know about Vit D but I do know that the sunny weather in the last few days has lifted my spirits enormously and several other people have remarked similar feelings.  In one such conversation my interlocutor wondered and got me wondering that if
our spring feeling is that noticeable, how deep in fact is the winter depression.

Good question, I felt?  Perhaps the answer is to remember the happy mood today and take VIT D supplements when the winter bites and see if it unmasks the April feeling?

Here's a good one. Sunblock bad. Sun good. Lobster bad, suntan good. Eat well.
https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/sun-exposure-cancer/?gl=582828491&mpweb=144-1473256-442413327

I've added a half dozen or so organic free range, wider diet eggs to my smoothies each week, raw. My D problem went away, AND, ya all know I get lots of sun. I also do weekly sweats, three rounds of at least 15 minutes, where I meditate, pray and sing, naked. This helps the skin detox and should contribute to its function optimally which is much more than skin deep.

I haven't dug deeper into the studies, but their talking improving risk of getting cancer in 50 percentile areas. They're dismissing melanoma and an entire drug empire that has increased profits from $20 mil to $400 mil on BS and dangerous snake oil claims.

We've got a copy of the whole series. It is amazingly intriguing, but this pertains to us directly.
