Sunlight guidelines from 40 years ago may need revision

October 7, 2021

From the Medical News Today website

Current guidelines on sunlight exposure for vitamin D derive from 1982 research examining pre-vitamin D formation in the skin following UVR exposure. However, some researchers suspect these guidelines may need revising, as pre-vitamin D undergoes chemical changes before becoming vitamin D that our bodies can use. 

Getting sunlight guidelines up-to-date is important to ensure people get enough vitamin D while not putting themselves at risk of sunburn and skin cancer.
