    Sun rays boost immune system: study
    Researchers have found spending a few minutes a day in the sun could help the body fight auto-immune diseases.

    The study by the University of Tasmania has found the vitamin helps cells regulate immune responses.

    This can help prevent diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type I diabetes.

    University of Tasmania researcher Ros Malley says while vitamin D is found in some dairy products and fish, it is mainly absorbed from regular exposure to sunlight.

    "Our major source of vitamin D is from exposure to sunlight and you don't need very much sunlight to produce adequate amounts of vitamin D and this might be as little as five to 15 minutes, four to six times a week," he said.

    Associate Professor Graeme Jones from the Menzies Research Institute says vitamin D is essential for normal bone and muscle function.

    "If you've got severe deficiency of vitamin D you get what's called osteomalacia in adults, which gives you bone pain and weak muscles," he said.

    "If you've got milder forms of deficiency you get weak muscles and you break easily."

    Seems like a crime to live in Hawaii and not get some regular sun exposure.
