Who Knew? Health benefits From Sunshine may be more numerous than anyone thought.
Get out into your garden, soak up a few of the suns UV rays, become a heather person by gardening.

Edinburgh University research suggests sunlight helps reduce blood pressure, cutting heart attack and stroke risks and even prolonging life. The suns UV rays were found to release a compound that lowers blood pressure.
Heart disease and stroke linked to high blood pressure are estimated to lead to about 80 times more deaths than those from skin cancer.

Dr Richard Weller Edinburgh University said “Dietary vitamin D supplements alone will not compensate for lack of sunlight. Production of the blood pressure reducing compound, nitric oxide, is separate from the body’s manufacture of vitamin D, which rises after exposure to sunshine.” Researchers said that until now vitamin D production had been considered the sole benefit of the sun to human health.

Test results showed that blood pressure dropped significantly for an hour after exposure to UV rays.
