Vitamin D continues to receive a great deal of attention, and for good reason. Vitamin D is essential to human health yet many people are deficient, especially those that live at higher latitudes, far away from the earth’s equator. In these areas, the tilt of the earth forces the sun’s rays to travel a longer path through the earth’s atmosphere, filtering the UVB light necessary for reactions within the skin that create Vitamin D. There is increasing evidence that Vitamin D protects against the development of many chronic diseases, including cancer (breast, colorectal, prostate), cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, type 1 diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, and depression. Fortunately, most people can treat Vitamin D deficiency with simple oral supplementation in the form of inexpensive Vitamin D tablets. In fact, Vitamin D is the only vitamin listed in Canada’s Food Guide.

UV Therapy and Skin Cancer
Unlike ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight and tanning lamps, many decades of use in dermatology has shown that UVB/UVB-Narrow-band phototherapy (which has UVA substantially excluded) is not a major risk for skin cancer; including basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and cutaneous malignant melanoma.
