For the past thirty years or so, dutiful Ellaville parents have been slathering their children with sunscreen when the little swimmers or soccer players head out into the sun. Ellaville dermatologists and oncologists have urged us to be vigilant about skin cancer risks.
That’s all well and good, right? Then we started hearing about the importance of Vitamin D.
As it turns out, millions of American children, many here in Ellaville, are dangerously deficient in this elusive nutrient.
Vitamin D is important for bone health, cell growth, immune system function, and keeping inflammation in check. Ironically, researchers are finding evidence that Vitamin D can help prevent many types of cancer.
What’s a confused Ellaville parent to do? Ellaville pediatricians don’t encourage parents to stop protecting their children from sunburn, but many say that 5-20 minutes of unprotected exposure may help ensure that your child has adequate levels of Vitamin D. When it comes to sun exposure, a little goes a long way.
If you wonder whether your Ellaville child needs Vitamin D supplements, talk to your Oglethorpe pediatrician or primary care doctor.
