Hi, my name is Ben Ten living in North America. I am a student of Bachelors Part – II and a book wormer. I interested in astronomy and I prefer to search for information about astronomy. I want to have some necessary knowledge about astronomy. I especially draw my attention in Planet SUN. I introduce my file, which contain the useful information about SUN planet and some Facts about planet Sun. There are also some pictures of SUN. I hope that, they will provide to you useful knowledge about astronomy in general and SUN in particular.
Vitamin D and the Sun There are practical and useful facts about the sun besides the use of solar energy, one of them being the sun as a significant source of vitamin D. Not only is vitamin D from the sun effective, it is also found to be the most natural. It is absorbed by the body through the skin’s exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D has been found to be a helpful factor in the prevention of disease alongside proper diet and exercise. A lot of diseases like cancer, heart failure and osteoporosis could be avoided through the proper intake of vitamin D. What’s even good about it is that even a short period of exposure of the skin to the sun is enough to provide a good amount of vitamin D. One of the known facts about the sun and vitamin D is that ninety percent of people’s vitamin D comes from the skin’s exposure to the sun. When ultraviolet rays reach the skin, cholesterol is converted to vitamin D3. Although there are types of food that contain vitamin D like cod liver oil, krill oil and milk, there are not many of them. Take note of course, that there is a huge difference between getting enough exposure from the sun to get vitamin D, and getting too much UV exposure to the point of getting sunburned. It usually takes only common sense to know when one already has enough. Avoid sunburn, but do not avoid the sun. Contrary to popular belief, the darker you are, the more sun exposure you actually. This is due to the fact that melanin which is responsible for skin color, acts as some kind of sunscreen to protect the skin. The greater the amount of melanin in the skin, the more sunscreens there are, and therefore the more there is a need for sun exposure in order to get vitamin D. Just how vital the sun’s role is in providing vitamin D for humans cannot be overstated. Today, more than fifty types of cancer are found to be related to vitamin D deficiency. Unfortunately, only overexposure to sunlight is emphasized today due to the proliferation of products which offer UV protection. However, it does appear that more people suffer from vitamin D deficiency rather than overexposure to the sun. What’s good about vitamin D from the sun is that it is fat soluble. This means that it can be stored in the body for longer periods of time. Getting a lot of vitamin D in the summer means that you will have enough for the winter season when it is more difficult to get exposed to sunlight. Note that the extra amount of vitamin D taken in by the body is de-metabolized. Most health groups encourage people to get 1,000-2,000 IU of vitamin D, particularly from the sun. People hardly get too much vitamin D from the sun for it is a natural source, and it is natural for people to get out of sunlight when they feel that it is too hot or they are probably overexposed. As you can see, the sun is not only humankind’s companion for work or daytime activities; it is also an essential part of human health. How the sun naturally and efficiently provides vitamin D for humans to keep us healthy is probably one of the most amazing facts about the sun. The Sun: Astrological Effects and Remedies There are a lot of facts about the sun known to us today, partly due to the highly improved technological instruments that allow us to observe its activity, and also due to our advanced knowledge about the world in general. However, since ancient times, the sun has been of special interest to the earliest of human civilization due to its special position and great energy, so that it has earned a place in humankind’s religion, literature and even lifestyle. The wonder book of Astrology refers to what others consider facts about the sun based on the second chapter of Lai Kitab, and offers details as to how the sun would affect houses with reference to its position. It is viewed that the sun will have adverse effects in houses where it is placed. For instance, in the first house, the native is to have a permanent source of income, yet his father may die early. Other problems may occur, yet remedial measures include marrying before one is 24 years old. In the second house, the native is seen to be self-dependent. Adverse effects lie in disputes between the wife and family members. Measures that can be taken are avoiding disputes regarding wealth and women. In the third house, the native is self-dependent and intellectual. Problems revolve around robbery, where remedial measures include practicing good conduct and serving others. In the fourth house, positive qualities like wisdom and kindness are bestowed on the native, whose problems may center on greediness. The solution to this is giving alms. It is in the fifth house, the native is assured of his family’s progress and prosperity. The most daunting problem is the death of family members, and the only way to solve it is to not delay in having children. A lucky native is said to be in the sixth house in which he will have a beautiful wife. The downside is the encounter with health problems. The remedy is to follow ancestral customs. The seventh house gives the native a chance to have unending sources of income. The basic obstacle though, is the death of family members, to which the basic remedy is to lessen the amount of salt intake. It is in the eighth house where the native is supposed to get favors from the government. Economic crisis and ill health are among the difficulties for this native, and the remedy is to not live in a house facing the south. Good luck and a good-natured family await the native of the ninth house. Challenges include trouble from the government and one’s brothers. In this case, extreme feelings of anger and soft-heartedness should be avoided. The native of the tenth house will experience favors from the government and at the same time, is coupled with a short life. The remedy here is to abstain from liquor and milk, and to avoid wearing black clothes. The native in the 11th house is supposed to avoid meat, while that in the 12th house should always forgive his enemies. These astrological perceptions about the sun and its position are based on ancient beliefs about the sun’s authority. Note that the facts about the sun stated here may simply be superstitious for some people, yet there are others who tend to believe it and make it a part of their lives.
