There is only one way to block ultraviolet light while outside-sunscreen, but there are many ways to get enough vitamin D-vitamins, milk, sun. In this era of increasing skin cancers, we strongly recommend sunscreen and sun protection. If you are concerned about your vitamin D level, please discuss this with your doctor. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/24/science/sunscreens-and-vitamin-d.html?_r=1
We agree with the Wall Street Journal article that people don’t use enough sunscreen! Spring and sun are here so be prepared. Use an SPF of at least 30 daily, reapply frequently and make sure it is a good broad spectrum sunscreen. See your dermatologist for a skin cancer screening. Be sun safe!
