Draft recommendations for sun exposure

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is consulting on draft recommendations to help people strike the right balance when it comes to being out in the sun. Communicating the benefits and risks of sunlight exposure to the general public is contentious because exposing the skin to too much time in the sun is a risk for skin cancer but too little can lead to vitamin D deficiency. The draft recommendations aim to give people a better understanding of the various benefits and risks. The consultation is available from the NICE website until 10 February 2015.
