This article tells of a research study of vitamin D and how it can reduce blood pressure as effectively as some blood pressure drugs. The impact of using vitamin D-3 may be less side effects and lower cost for the same benefits.

From the article:
Around 90 per cent of the body’s supply of vitamin D comes from the action of sunlight on the skin.

In that case, moving to Lakeside is good for your health! However, we also have a lot of busy dermatologists taking care of the negative consequences of too much sunlight on the skins of lighter foreigners. My originally red haired esposo came out of Dr. Lupita's office the other day looking like the loser in a cat attack. Shocked

Yep. Just the usual round of freezing and cutting that's been going on for years. When we met, he was foolishly proud of being the local "brownie of the year", suntan wise. Dumb. When I was a pup, tan was a must, but I've been lucky so far on the after effects. So, years later, the tans are being paid for on the "installment plan."

What's really funny about it all is light skinned people looking down on dark skinned ones in some places (like Mexico) and meanwhile, the supertan US POTUS, gets grief over his color from some quarters. Go figure. Rolling Eyes
