Ever find yourself sitting for a long period of time? Or inside playing games, watching Netflix all day? Scientists say that sitting down too long or even not going outside can cause you to have problems with your immune system, which would affect your ability to fight disease. And it could even cause cancer, heart disease, and depression. Turns out that the sunlight emitted by the sun’s radiant rays emits a nutrient called vitamin D and it causes a chain reaction with our skin. The cholesterol in your skin absorbs the sunlight and turns the vitamin D into calcium thereby making your bones strong. So the “Sunshine Vitamin” can make you stronger, healthier, and more happy. So put down the video games and pause the movie to step outside and catch a breather. To learn more checkout this video by ASAPScience. Comment on the blog post and let us know what you think.
