Sunday May 14, 2017, Dr. Sondang Panjaitan, a dermatologist from Jakarta came to Park 23 Shopping Mall on Jalan Kediri, Bali, to present a health seminar for Bali Sehat Ministry, the program started at 2 pm. Dr. Sondang addressed the need of sunshine for our best health. Vitamin D can only be formed in human bodies with proper exposure to the sun. Living in the tropical country like Indonesia, we should be in the sun for 30-minutes from 10 am to 2 pm every day. If you have to be outdoor in the sun for hours, you should be using sunblock to keep the skin from burning. Different skin colors mean different characters and sensitivity toward the sun. Those with lighter skin color should not be exposed to the sun as much as those whose skin colors are darker. We have to, as much as possible, prevent our skin from being too much exposed to the sun as this may trigger skin cancer, if your skin turns reddish after the exposure, that means you have too much sun. We should also cover our head and our face when we are in the hot sun. Dr. Sondang also presented that one of the benefits of sunshine is to prevent different cancers in our bodies. We thank God for all the blessings He has given us through the wonderful nature that He created.
