Prostate cancer expert, Dr. David Samadi, urges viewers to soak up the sun. A new study indicates that those who have less exposure to sunshine could be at increased risk of stroke. Dr. Samadi stresses the importance of a Vitamin D test, called 25-hydroxy test, to check Vitamin D levels. Limited exposure to Vitamin D3 leads to Vitamin D deficiencies in 30% of the U.S. population. Sun exposure is recommended for 20 minutes/day, 3 times/week. Vitamin D deficiencies can lead to problems with blood pressure, the pancreas, and even diabetes. Oral supplements are available.
