Compulsory Sunbathing

As loyal readers know, Nanny has vehemently spoken out against the dangers of sunshine and sunbathing. 

Nanny and her chums in the pharmaceutical industry have bombarded us with cancer warnings and adverts for factor 50 creams and potions.

Now, however, things have changed and Nanny's chums from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition have proclaimed that (surprise surprise) there is too little sunshine in the UK!

Nanny's conclusion is that (yes my headline was deliberately misleading!) everyone should  take vitamin D supplements.

Errmm..excuse me..but people with a balanced diet (eg cheese, eggs..that Nanny hates) don't need to take supplements to counter the lack of sunshine in the UK. 

Conversely simply sit in the sun for a bit!

  1. This is exactly the kind of problem we get because our silly Nanny gives far too much weight to the shouty single issue groups.
    Mankind has survived, nay thrived, without Nanny for thousands of years....Do we really need to hamstring ourselves with an all seeing, all hearing Nanny? I think not.....Nanny, just go away and let us get on with it!

    Someone else has pointed out that most of us will be just fine but Nanny has concerns about those who, shall we say, prefer not to expose themselves to good fresh air and rather than offend their sensibilities by singling them out, Nanny prefers to suggest that we all O/D on supplements.

  3. Several years ago, handsome and sensible Dr Hilary Jones wrote an article for the Daily Express concerning sunshine. He stated that, unless you were in the minority who for medical or pigmentation reasons could not have direct sunlight on your skin, 30 or 40 minutes of it was good for you, producing a healthy dose of vitamin D and other health benefits. After this he stated, you should apply sun cream/lotion, (which stops the positive as well as negative qualities), or cover up/go in the shade. He also gave the usual sensible advice to avoid midday sunshine, not spend more than an hour sunbathing, and if you have to spend a longer period in the sun, use a medium to high protection depending on your skin type and previous exposure. Needless to say, the anti sun fanatics tore into him and he disappeared off our television screens. Fanatics do not like sensible, well researched fact. I personally spend 6 minutes in a solarium every 7-10 days, especially in the Winter. This is good for my skin and bones, and, dare I say, even creates some well being!
