About this title


According to Dr Michael Holick of the Boston University School of Medicine and America's leading expert on Vitamin D, the scare tactics of international health leaders about the potential hazards of sun exposure have gone too far. Their exaggerated warnings about the sun's harmful effects have led to public misconceptions that is threatening our overall health. As a result, we in the midst of a 'silent epidemic' of vitamin D deficiency in the West that has widespread repercussions. With the UV Advantage, Dr Holick is the first highly credentialed doctor to author a book that proclaims the clinically demonstrated benefits of sensible sun exposure on bone, cellular, organ, autoimmune and mood-related health.


"Can sunshine, now shunned by so many who fear skin cancer and wrinkles, save many more lives than in harms? Most definately, says the leading expert in the field, Dr. Michael F. Holick, a professor of medicine, dermatology, physiology and biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Holick, who discovered the active form of Vitamin D, has pulled together an impressive body of evidence in support of his advice that no one should be, as he puts it, a "sunphone," or for that matter, a sun worshiper. Dr. Holick elaborates on these ideas in an important book(to be published), written with Mark Jenkins, a health writer. People should have the opportunity to benefit from the doctor's insights without further delay."
