In our coverage of cutting-edge health and wellness paradigms, It’s Rainmaking Time!® strives to encourage our listeners to rethink established research and protocols. It is more important now than ever to mitigate the health impacts of modern lifestyle and increasing environmental toxicity – not to mention bad health data. Dr. Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., a pioneer in vitamin D research for over three decades and the author of The Vitamin D Solution, visits us to refute the demonization of the sun and to explain its photosynthetic role in the skin’s production of vitamin D, expanding on what we covered in our first interview about light. Although dietary supplements may ensure a consistent dosage of vitamin D3, no more than 60% can be effectively metabolized. Despite substantial contrary evidence, moderate sun exposure is commonly lumped in with overexposure as a skin cancer risk, inspiring decades of misguided precautionary avoidance. As a result, vitamin D deficiency is a growing nutritional issue for humanity, leaving millions of adults and children at risk for numerous diseases and disorders, including cancer, autoimmune disease, and heart disease. Join us with Dr. Michael Holick for a deeper look at vitamin D deficiency, the role of vitamin D in the body, and the importance of the sun in overall health.
