My sister has spent most of her life indoors, reading, playing D&D, watching TV, social media, etc. Her daughter pretty much followed mom's example, and so did her granddaughter. Now I learn that sister has a rare kind of cancer, my niece already had cancer that had been surgically removed. My grand niece had a broken wrist and was diagnosed with severe deficiency of Vitamin D causing weak bones. That compares to myself and my kids who grew up running naked through the woods, camping, hiking, and playing outside.
I have read that Vitamin D is very helpful fighting cancer, so much that exposure to sunshine prevents more skin cancer than chemical sun blocker. I got to wondering if the cultural trend toward children (and adults) sitting inside in front of screens instead of going outside in the sunshine is now a factor in cancer risk? Of course we are all sitting here by our screens, but we nudists tend to get outside as soon as spring happens and the snow melts.
Has anyone else noticed a correlation between friends or family members getting cancer and an indoor screen oriented life style? What about thin bones, breaks, injuries, or other medical problems? Is there medical data or are there studies on this? Wondering.
