Sunbathing isn't really healthy. If you need vitamin D, you might as well just go on a walk, walk to the store, go biking or whatever. Sunbathing while laying still is actually quite 'dangerous' (sunburns etc).

My docs always said to go lay in the sun for at least 30 minutes a day for vitamin D. And supplementing vitamin D in pill form can really fuck up your liver if you aren't careful. I had to have blood work every 2 weeks when I was prescribed the supplements.

Nowadays, milk is fortified with vitamin D. There are also foods to eat with vitamin D as well. As fun as tanning and sunbathing is, all dermatologists will tell you that there's no safe way to tan. When your skin gets damaged by the sun, it produces vitamin D.

15 minutes a day will get you your daily amount of vitamin D. supplements and milk aren't the best ways to get it since it's better to be absorbed by the skin. just use bug spray next time.

Being out in the sun between 11 and 1 is the most dangerous, as the sun is strongest between 11 and 3. Don't sit in the sun, it just makes it worse. You can also be in the shade and still get some of the benefits.

#45, if your skin does produce vitamin D without sunlight, it doesn't produce nearly enough. people get sick in the winter for more reasons than "it's cold".
