Doc Recommends Indoor Tanning For Vit. D

megaSun SunbedIn an article for the Huffington Post, Christiane Northrup, MD, suggests boosting vitamin D levels to prevent breast cancer and even goes so far as to suggest tanning indoors to stimulate vitamin D production.

Northrup says that, based on recent research linking higher vitamin D levels with decreased risk for breast cancer, it's important for women to know their vitamin D level and take steps to boost vitamin D if they are deficient.

She notes that it is difficult to get all the vitamin D needed from food sources, and suggests supplements and regular sun exposure- including visiting a tanning salon that offers UVB tanning rays.
