Vitamin D

If you're like me, you often wonder how much Vitamin D do I need?  In order for you to absorb the calcium, you also need Vitamin D. Before the use of sunscreen, most people got enough Vitamin D, except for some places that had very little sun. I worry about skin cancer, but I will go for short walks where I don't use sunscreen except on my face. When using sunscreen look for zinc oxide as the active ingredient. This is the safest. Some sunscreen can actually cause skin cancer. There is also no proof that over 30 SPF increases your protection.
