The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Dispelling myths about vitamin D

    eMaxHealth interviewed Dr. Barbara Gilchrest, professor and chair of the department of dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine to dispel 4 myths about vitamin D.

    Here’s one.
    If spending a little time in the sun allows the skin to produce vitamin D, then the more time, the better.

    False. Maximum production of vitamin D occurs after brief exposure to UV radiation. For a fair-skinned person in Boston or New York, at noon in June, it is 2-5 minutes.

    You can read the rest here.
