“Tanning Can Help Fight Seasonal Affective Disorder” Published in Looking Fit Magazine, December 2, 2009

"An article in The Wall Street Journal acknowledges that indoor tanning provides UVB rays, which aid in promoting the presence of beneficial vitamin D in the human body. It also mentions that UVB has been tied to endorphin stimulus, which triggers pleasant results in terms of brain messaging.Winter can often spur on the incidence of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which yields depression-like symptoms including anti-social behavior. A global condition, it does tend to offer sufferers respite in the spring and summer months. Some of the options for treating SAD include indoor tanning, medication, supplementation, light therapy, behavior modification, diet, exercise and negative ion treatment.The group most widely impacted is women between the ages of 18 and 30. Genetics and geography have also been implicated. Because it is considered a behavior disorder, consulting a mental health professional is advised. Additional related health concerns include irregularities in demeanor and sleep."

"Discover the Pain of Vitamin D Deficiency" Published in Natural News, September 03, 2009

"While at first glance, it doesn't seem like Vitamin D deficiency could be a serious cause of pain, that's probably why so many doctors miss the diagnosis and why so many people are suffering needlessly from chronic pain- while at the same time being put at risk for the cancers, heart disease and osteoporosis that Vitamin D deficiency causes. Vitamin D Deficiency, however, is a very serious and very widespread cause of pain. Nearly every study that looked at the relationship between the two found vitamin D deficiency- often SEVERE deficiency- in up to 100% of people with chronic pain. Even more importantly, they found that TREATING this Vitamin D deficiency led to the decrease or even complete elimination of pain in the vast majority of studies that actually used enough vitamin D to correct the deficiency. Unfortunately even MILD vitamin D deficiency correlated with increased pain and many studies just simply did not use enough vitamin D to actually correct the deficiency- leaving the researchers and patients to incorrectly believe that a lack of vitamin D was NOT the cause of their problems"

"Academic Fraud?", Published in Smart Tan, July 30th, 2009

"The International Agency for Research on Cancer ignored conflicting information in its classification of ultraviolet light as ‘carcinogenic to humans’ – a one-dimensional conclusion that benefits the $35 billion sunscreen industry, which has strong financial ties to most of the dermatology community today, and forgets the fact that humans need UV light to live. “If a pharmaceutical company sold you sunshine, we wouldn’t be having this discussion right now,” International Smart Tan Network Vice President Joseph Levy said. “Instead, we are dealing with a report that now has the press comparing Mother Nature’s most important creation – sunlight – to arsenic and mustard gas. It’s ludicrous.” “Saying that UV exposure is harmful and should be avoided is as wrong as saying that water causes drowning, and therefore we should avoid water.” No data has ever been presented suggesting that UV exposure in a non-burning fashion is a significant risk factor for any skin damage, nor has a mechanism been established whereby UV causes melanoma, which is more common in indoor workers than in outdoor workers and which occurs most commonly on parts of the body that don’t get regular UV exposure."
