Having been living in increasing fear of the sunshine due to moral panics surrounding wrinkles, liver spots and more worryingly, cancer, Oxford University tells us to fear not. New research published today in the Journal Genome Research claims that Vitamin D, which is created when the sunshine hits our skin, is a vital ingredient to our health and well-being. 20 minutes of sunshine a day can help avert our risk of cancer and other diseases. But is such research at risk of misleading sun-worshipers? Living in a society where tan is trend, many of us overdose on the daily recommendation of 20 minutes of sunshine, in fact putting ourselves at further risk of cancer, rather than out of harms way.
New research from Oxford University suggests that 20 minutes of sunshine per day can keep cancer at bay.
