Healthy People Do Not Get Skin Cancer
Cancer is helped by sunbathing, writes Dr. Zane R. Kime. Kime writes that those
who get more sunlight have less cancer. Sunbathing heals cancer by building up
the immune system and increasing the oxygen in the tissues.
Sunlight does not cause skin cancer. Healthy people do not get cancer and
-unhealthy people do get it. Chronic sunburn combines with free radicals to
cause skin cancer. Sunlight may change free radicals, dietary fat, cholesterol
and deranged antioxidants via cooked foods into skin cancer. Under the
influence of sunlight, these toxic foods are brought to the skin. Cooked foods
have had their antioxidants, particularly vitamins C and E, reduced or deranged
by cooking. The sources of free radicals are mainly dietary fat, especially
polyunsaturated fats, but also fats and oils applied to the skin in suntan
lotion and other cosmetics. Suppression of the 'immune system by drugs may be
involved in skin cancer that is stimulated by sunlight. X-rays and chemotherapy
The assumption that vitamin D supplements will protect you against diseases
associated with low vitamin D levels is incorrect, according to Australian
researchers. The report found that vitamin D supplements are immunosuppressive
and may actually make diseases worse.
Vitamin D Nuclear Receptor (VDR) influences the expression of over 1,000 genes,
including those associated with diseases such as cancer and multiple sclerosis.
According to the new study, supplemental vitamin D actually blocks VDR
activation, which is the opposite effect to that of sunshine. Instead of
positively impacting gene expression, vitamin D supplements appear to suppress
your immune system.
Vitamin D deficiency, the researchers pointed out, is likely not a cause of
disease but rather is a result of the disease process. And increasing vitamin D
intake may make the diseases worse.
The body regulates production of all the vitamin D it needs, the researchers
said, and dysregulation of vitamin D by supplementation has been associated
with many chronic diseases.
Prevent Skin Cancer With Sunlight
As published by NaturalNews 2/07 by M.T.Whitney Researchers Discover Moderate Sunlight Exposure Helps Prevent Skin Cancer
To the surprise of scientists, while exposure to the sun's UV rays is the main
cause of skin cancer, a recent study says some sunlight also can help prevent
it. The idea of sunlight helping prevent skin cancer may sound like a paradox,
but the key is exposure in moderation, immunology scientists at Stanford
Sunlight causes vitamin D to synthesize in the body, yielding some protection
from the risk of skin cancer. The production of vitamin D is spurred on as an
immunity response from the body receiving ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from
sunlight. Increased vitamin D has other health benefits to the body, but
excessive UVB rays can damage the skin and raises the risk of skin cancer. Most
people can get the daily amount of vitamin D recommended by the U.S. Department
of Agriculture by spending a half-hour to an hour outdoors, health experts told
the web site HealthDay.com.
Spending some time in the sun is good for you, concurs consumer health advocate
Mike Adams, author of the e-book "The Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D."
"The truth about sunlight is that sensible exposure actually prevents skin
cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, depression and even osteoporosis,"
Adams said. "Sunlight is more powerful than any drug; it is safe, effective and
available free of charge. If it could be patented, it would be hyped as the
greatest medical breakthrough in history. It's that good."
The study, led by Stanford professor of pathology Eugene Butcher, correlates to
another study by researchers at the University of New Mexico Cancer Research
and Treatment Center from 2005 that suggested that people who get malignant
melanoma but also have a high amount to daily sun exposure have a higher
survival rate than people with less exposure.
