What Is The Right Time To Bask In The Sun?
Doc, I often see in various media that the source is many doctors who recommend to bask in the sun at 10:00 to 15:00 because for the time before 10:00 there is a dangerous UVA. While other doctors say the opposite, namely that sunbathing at 10:00 to 15:00 is dangerous. Now, which one is this, doc?

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Regarding good sunbathing time, unfortunately so far there has been a lot of confusing information about it, thus confusing ordinary people. Each doctor has his own research and thought base, and there has been no clarification from more formal bodies such as the world health organization or research involving many parties and many countries.
So, in the end we will leave it back to you, which one you want to follow. What is clear, do not need to sunbathe for too long, just 15 minutes. That way, even if there are dangerous rays, our bodies are not too long exposed and the bad effects will not be so great.
In addition, it is also necessary to understand the main nature of the sun itself. Sunbathing facilitates the conversion of vitamin D raw material into vitamin D, which is useful in maintaining endurance. This is where sunbathing is encouraged, because one of the best ways to fight corona virus infection is to improve endurance. Therefore, we must not only sunbathe, but there must be raw materials. If the level of vitamin D raw material in our body is low, finding the right time for sunbathing is also useless. Among foods and drinks that are high in vitamin D are milk, egg yolks, salmon, shrimp, and of course multivitamins and supplements.
Then because the true purpose of sunbathing is to improve endurance, if in the end there is still no convincing source of when is the best time to sunbathe, we can still increase endurance in other ways, namely with adequate rest, avoiding cigarette smoke , regular exercise according to ability, consume a variety of fruits and vegetables, manage stress well, and if it relates to avoiding corona, limit activities outside the home and routine hand washing.
In conclusion, you can choose to sunbathe above 10 or under 10, all have their own theoretical basis. What is clear, do not need to sunbathe for too long. Even if you end up not sure and don't want to sunbathe, it's okay. Sunbathing is not the only thing you can do to avoid corona. Even if you are sunbathing, but your sleep is irregular, your food is unhealthy, you rarely exercise, and you stay out of the house often, your risk of contracting remains large. So, live a healthy lifestyle as a whole and that way, you can avoid disease, not only corona, but various other diseases. So, hopefully answering your question.
