    Great video. Nice to see Dr. Cannell working so hard on our behalf. Keep on keeping on! I spread the message here in Toronto as much as I can.

    Great information!

    Just would like to emphasize the efficiency of getting vitamin D from tanning beds.

    There is a great scepticism, even among vitamin D experts, on the use of tanning beds for making vitamin D.

    The scepticism probably comes from doubts about risks as communicated in the media.

    Having researched the media’s misinterpretation of the risks involved with indoor tanning, I can assure you that they are grossly exaggerated.

    In fact, even IARC (the International Agency for Research on Cancer) has in their Monograph 55 stated that “chronic (i.e. regular) sun-exposure reduce the risk of melanoma”!
