Sunscreen Question

But you're right, anything above SPF30 has to be a chemical sunscreen.  I'm not convinced that chemical sunscreens are harmful to adults, but it's kind of ironic that we're seeing low plasma levels of vitamin D in kids these days though since they're all being slathered with super high SPF sunscreens every few minutes.  It doesn't have to be a choice between skin cancer and rickets, but then not everyone has common sense.

That would have been an interesting study to take part in.  :pointlaff:

Of course the winter months would be difficult and in Canada no less. I take Vit D through the winter but it is not the same, which is why I try to "stock up" on sun during the summer. Not that I think I can stock up literally but getting out in the sun a lot in the summer helps me build up psychologically to make it through winter.
