How to Get Your Full Family Health History

There are many benefits of knowing the health history of your family.

New Study Finds Sunlight Boosts Nitric Oxide Production

As per latest research, exposure of the skin to sunlight causes it to release a compound that lowers blood pressure. This miracle compound Nitric Oxide is released by the blood vessels.

As the benefits of lower blood pressure easily outnumber the chances of developing skin cancer, sunlight is indeed beneficial to one’s health. Statistics state that high blood pressure, which leads to stroke and heart disease, causes 80 times more deaths than what skin cancer does. A recent study carried out by the University of Edinburgh suggests so.

The production of Nitric Oxide is quite different from that of Vitamin D. The latter is produced after exposure to the sun’s rays. Until now, it was considered to be the sole benefit of sunlight to the body. With this research, the benefits have been found to extend far beyond the manufacture of Vitamin D.
