I have heard this as well. I myself take vitamin d3 and I seem to have more tolerance with the sun. But you have to know your own limits which is determined by your overall skin tone. If you are a lighter person and burn easy you definitely want to cover up, wear hats etc. if you are going to be out for a prolonged period of exposure. For lighter skinned people I would recommend 15 minutes of sun exposure before you need to cover up. Other alternatives may be to get your sun exposure in the late afternoon to prevent burning. But overall you have to know your own body and know when you start to burn. It only take a couple really bad burns to really increase your risk of skin cancer.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
