How do I get vitamin D from the sun, Any risk of skin cancer?

Yes, it’s true. Staying out in the sun can help your body create Vitamin D, but is it worth the risks? Skin cancer from sun exposure affects about 1 in 6 people. Rather than relying on the sun for Vitamin D, Dr. Badia recommends consuming more low fat dairy products or consider taking a supplement.
