Sunshine and Human Health


One of the most overlooked health habits is getting regular sun exposure. Objectively speaking, this is probably the single most important factor after proper food, water, and sleep. Bright light exposure to our retinas regulates proper serotonin and melatonin expression - vital for mood and sleep. And, of course, allows us to synthesize vitmamin D in our skin, which is actually not a vitamin, but a seco-steroid hormone.

Our ancestors probably received 10x more sun exposure than we do nowadays.

Here's an article I've done summarizing and distilling all of the proven health benefits of sun exposure - or rather the proven consequences of a sun deficiency.

Included is a robust bibliography containing hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies of all types.
