    So, for those of us who don't live in Malibu are tanning beds an option? Aren't there some types that help you make Vitamin D and others that don't? I know there's some discussion here, but I was hoping there was a "definitive" answer somewhere

    C'mon Icarian- we've got plenty of sun out here. As long as you don't mind a bit of a nippy wind . . . Oh, and you don't work between 7 am and 4:30 pm.

    Actually, it was really nice out (like 50+) on Sunday. Went for a hike in a wife beater and shorts. The last 2 days it's been less than 20. It will be in the high 60s to low 70s in January just to fuck with my head.

    Okay, so I know I'm following a troll post that bumped this thread, but I do think this is a good question. It's not an issue for me since I work outside in Southern Nevada, but I'm still curious.

    I heard something (maybe on Everday Paleo?) that the older tanning beds were better since the new ones blocked a certain type of light that was needed for Vitamin D production, but I don't remember exactly what the difference was.
    Durp.
