Learn why vitamin D is the \'sunshine vitamin\'

I am one of those people that go to the beach, lather up with sunscreen, wear a hat, wear sunglasses and sit in the shade.

Why? Well of course because all my friends did the same thing. I did not like to do it then and certainly would never do that now.
