Melanoma Is a Disease of Office Workers

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer, is more frequently found in office workers who may burn during outdoor activities on the weekend and are exposed to damaging UVA rays through office windows
  • It's becoming clear regular exposure to full spectrum light is necessary, and public health would be best served by helping people understand the optimal "dose" needed, rather than telling them to shun all sun exposure
  • Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a risk of developing a number of health conditions; blood serum levels of 60 ng/ml to 80 ng/ml appear optimal for disease prevention, and are best achieved through sensible sun exposure
  • If you don’t have access to full sun through the winter months, oral supplementation may help you achieve an ideal vitamin D level; ensure you also optimize your intake of vitamin K2 and magnesium to avoid negative effects
