WHY ISN'T SUNLIGHT PROMOTED AS A NATURAL CURE?

The $10 million question of course is why aren't researchers promoting cures that are available for free?
Well, anyone dabbling in medical politics will know that the medical community doesn't really promote anything that it cannot invent and patent for financial gain. Given the large checkbooks of the pharmaceutical companies, it should not surprise us that they can control what press releases are published, and spend millions of dollars on advertising their drugs. When was the last time you saw a full-page advert for sunlight, being able to prevent or reverse cancer?

Instead, the medical community uses the full-page advertisement for high-profit prescription drugs that have negative side effects and actually kill people. If conventional medicine was not so interested in making profits from the drugs that they patents, then we would probably see much more information on how sunlight is a natural treatments and preventative for breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, and even diseases like osteoporosis and depression. Instead, however, the profiteers actually scare people away from the healing power of sunlight and discredit any person, who dares to talk and publish scientific information on sunlight and vitamin B. it is a sad state of affairs!

Chrystyanna,
Thanks for pointing out what should be obvious to all! Even scientific research backs your point completely, so why does everyone not think like we do?

A recent study showed that those who get 2000 IU's of vitamin D daily have half the risk of developing breast cancer and a third the risk of developing colon cancer of those who don't. Ten to fifteen minutes in the sun (without sunscreen) can provide that. Why don't we hear more - because it doesn't have a pharmaceutical name it took a million to create! On the other side of the equation, we know that the CDC recently ranked adverse reactions to medications as second only to motor vehicle accidents as accidental causes of death.

I know of many friends and family members who have been advised to use tamoxifen for breast cancer prevention, but none of them were advised to seek out the sun for a few minutes each day. This, despite solid medical studies showing sun exposure to have a higher preventive value with a fraction of the side effects.

Thanks!
