It evolved to be black so as to be able tap into the Sun and get those properties that will give you long life, full of health, stronger and biologically efficient. The white skin needs the Sun but not that much. More than fifteen minutes in the Sun without sunscreen and they will get burns and ultimately peels. Black folks need it far more and they don't get scorched in fifteen minutes even without sunscreen. But some Africans and other diaspora Africans avoid the Sun. Is it not ironic that while some black folks are lightening up, some white folks are darkening down? They call it tanning and it does not come cheap either. People of African descent, living in cold climate, can have a natural Sun protection factor (SPF) of up to 13 as compared to 3-4 for whites. For equatorial and other hot weather blacks, it is even better. This advantage for African Americans and black immigrants, can also be a disadvantage. It is a double edged sword for black people not living in equatorial climate. You just need to have proper information with which to turn the disadvantage into an advantage.

Recent, groundbreaking medical research has made a connection between Vitamin D deficiency and 17 types of cancers, including breast, colon, and prostate. Illnesses such as influenza, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and coronary heart disease have also been connected to a lack of this vitamin. Until not too long ago, not getting enough Vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) was only associated with rickets, the childhood bone disease. Now, Soram Khalsa, M. D., sheds new light on the power of this long-forgotten vitamin. He reveals how to recognize signs of Vitamin D deficiency, which has reached epidemic proportions in North America, and then shares insights from his Beverly Hills medical practice, where he normalizes his own patients' Vitamin D levels for their optimal health.
In this informative overview of an often-neglected topic, historian Laurie Winn Carlson examines the historical and cultural factors that have created our indoor lifestyles and the medical evidence that suggests we need to get out in the sun.
