This light is also a completely safe, non toxic and doctor (Dr. Mercola) recommended tanning lamp.
You cannot overdose (toxicity) on the Vitamin D generated naturally in your body from UVB rays (sunshine or sunlamp).
Vitamin D has been strongly associated with reduced cancer risks, the prevention of autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis, as well as for the prevention of cardio vascular diseases and even diabetes.
Vitamin D deficiency is rampant here in the United States, despite the fact that it has been proven as necessary for the prevention of many of the serious and chronic diseases.
The primary source of Vitamin D for humans is SUNLIGHT. Sunlight causes the cells in the skin to produce Vitamin D, as there are few foods that contain or provide it for us.
Sunlight has gotten a bad rap. Although not to be abused or used to excess, in reality, it is not only the best disinfectant, but it is also a nutrient that is as necessary to our bodies and well being as food and water.
Unfortunately most of us do not spend enough time outdoors to get the sufficient amount of sunlight needed to provide us with our normal daily requirement of Vitamin D, AND in the fall and winter months, due to the azimuth of the sun it’s rays are not strong enough for Vitamin D production, hence the Winter Blues and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
These issues can be rectified by the using of this amazing UV producing light!
