According to www.medicinenet.com:
"Some recent reports suggest that getting vitamin D from sun exposure may prevent the occurrence and spread of cancers, both of internal organs and of the skin. In spite of the occasional controversy surrounding these studies, their common-sense implications are simple enough. Even those doctors who recommend sun for vitamin D only suggest 15 minutes a few times a week. For most people, especially those who have day jobs or live in cooler climates, following this advice is not likely to result in markedly higher risk of skin cancer. No responsible authority suggests that to help with vitamin D, people ought to sunbathe or visit tanning salons."
