That’s a chemistry lab in a bottle, but it’s not the imitation fruit juice we’re talking about here, but good ole sunshine.
There has been so much press coverage about the harmful effects of exposure to the sun, that some kids are actually showing suns of rickets – a disease caused by a lack of Vitamin D, which was common in the slums of Victorian England, where there was often no access to outside areas for children to play in.
However, it’s a good idea for children, and adults, to have around a quarter of an hour’s daily exposure to sunshine, as that is the best way fro the body to naturally manufacture its own supply of this vitamin. Natural vitamins are always better than taking supplments, as the body can often assimilate them better than an artificially made product.
When at the beach in the summer, jsut enjoy the sun for 15 minutes before slathering on the sun block.
