sun 4 life. altitude. Hawaii.

You can get strong sun at high altitude.Problem is that even Texas has shorter days in the winter.
High altitude Colorado Wyoming is very cold and would not get enough sun in the winter.

I am Thinking of Hawaii again or Maybe Gainesville University of Florida Smaller City North of Disney World.
Honolulu has everything, big city state capitol university etc.
Beach every day, year round, about the same weather.
Don’t need much clothes or other items nowadays.
I Have been living off a smart phone for the past year and sleeping on the floor the ultimate firm mattress.
I am inches away from people all day, noise, dirt, germs don’t bother me.
Get headphones and blast with streaming music.
I use earplugs now a little afraid of bluetooth radiation for headphones.
Live downtown on the beach don’t need a car.
Eat local fruits and nuts.
Sun has many benefits besides Vitamin D.
Walking in ocean is the best source of electron antioxidants.
Humans are designed for barefoot electricity and some runners still run barefoot.
I average 10 miles walk per day but due to time constrains trying to reduce it.
I find about the 7 mile point I feel real good.
I think that is what triggers HGH human growth hormone or some other hormone.
I found running that 7 miles was the minimum needed to feel good.
Need to spread that throughout the day, not all at once.
When sun is out, no rain so go take a walk.
Honolulu temps above 62 in winter and below 85 in summer.

Vitamin D explains many observations about heart disease.

These include the facts that heart disease is higher at higher latitudes with less sunlight, lower altitudes, in the winter, in African Americans, in older, inactive, and in more obese patients.
Vitamin D blood levels are lower at higher latitudes, lower altitudes, in the winter, in African Americans, in older, inactive, and in more obese patients.

Altitude is the least known of these associations.
The age adjusted mortality for heart disease in the USA showed a striking inverse correlation with altitude in 1979, before the sun scare. American populations at the highest altitude had about half the heart disease of sea level populations.

Thirty-five years ago, Leaf observed that most of the long-lived populations in the world reside at high altitude.

A vitamin D theory of heart disease explains the excess cardiovascular deaths at high latitude, low altitude and during the winter.

Furthermore, it explains the higher incidence of heart disease in African Americans, older, inactive, and obese individuals as these groups have significantly lower vitamin D blood levels.

In 2003, Zittermann discovered that patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) have very low levels of vitamin D.

total serum cholesterol for both men and women were significantly lower at higher altitude in spite of similar diets. The seasonal variations in cholesterol are well known and not explained by seasonal dietary changes.

Blood pressure is higher at higher latitudes, lower altitudes, in the winter, in African Americans, in the aged, and in the obese.

High blood pressure is one of the strongest predictors of heart disease.
Here, six facts about hypertension can be explained by one theory: vitamin D.
The lower the vitamin D the higher the blood pressure.

Diabetes is more common at higher latitudes, at lower altitudes, in African Americans, in the aged and the obese.
Both blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C are higher in the winter. facts that can be explained with one theory: vitamin D.

Two studies show vitamin D significantly reduces C reactive protein (CRP), which may be a better predictor of heart disease than LDL cholesterol.
The Belgian study found a significant effect on CRP even though their high-dose vitamin D group only got 500 units a day.

The risk for total mortality is significantly lower in subjects with high vitamin D levels.
However, the study is in Finnish and has not been translated into English

Vitamin D should be consumed the way the human genome wants it, a steady amount every day.
If you live down south, you can go in the sun every day.
If you live up north you can sun in the warmer months and use a sunlamp or take real vitamin D in the winter.

Dr. Armin Zittermann, Ruhr University in Germany, has reviewed mounting evidence that vitamin D deficiency is a major cause of heart disease.

The rates of cardiovascular mortality in France are much lower in the South and West than in the North.
One of the world’s best vitamin D researchers, Dr. Marie Chapuy, found that vitamin D levels of healthy adults in France follow that same pattern, with a mean level of 38 ngs/ml in the sunnier and drier South and West, but less than half that (17ngs/ml) in the colder, rainier, and more polluted, North.

According to the current paradigm, polyunsaturated fats contained in vegetable seed oils are supposed to lower the risk of heart disease.
However, high consumption of these oils doesn’t appear to prevent the Israelis from dying from heart attacks.
Israel does, despite its sunny weather, have a high incidence of vitamin D deficiency.
Average vitamin D levels among healthy adults in Lebanon, right next door, are only 9.7 ngs/ml – dangerously low.
Healthy Jewish mothers, especially orthodox ones, have low vitamin D levels.
(If you are wondering how the pro-inflammatory omega-6 oils could ever help heart disease, one possibility is these oils dissociate vitamin D from its binding protein, making more free vitamin D available.
Apparently, the Israelis don’t have enough vitamin D in their blood to dissociate).

The overall death rate from cardiovascular disease in Italy, a country of heavy smokers, is relatively low.
Before you say it is the olive oil and wine, ask yourself where olive trees and grapevines grow–in the sun.
However, at least two good studies show vitamin D levels in Europe are a paradox, the closer a European lives to the equator, the lower their vitamin D level.
Nevertheless, an Italian study showed healthy Italian blood donors had robust vitamin D levels of 48 ngs/ml in the summer.
Even average postmenopausal Italian women reached 36 ng/ml in the summer.
Anyone who has traveled in Italy, know that most Italians love the sun.
As the old Italian proverb points out: “Where the sun does not go, the doctor does.”

Coronary artery disease was more than four times higher in Belfast than in Toulouse, France, despite almost identical coronary risk factors.
This is hard to explain, given the current paradigm of heart disease.
Belfast is at 54 degrees latitude, at sea level, and has 257 rainy days per year.
Toulouse is eleven degrees closer to the equator, its altitude is 500 feet closer to the sun, and Toulouse only has 74 rainy days per year.
Lots more vitamin D in Toulouse!

The Indian Paradox is the observation that a high prevalence of coronary artery disease in urban Indians in India is associated with low cholesterol and saturated fat intake.
Researchers found that a low saturated fat diet did not prevent heart disease in the citizens of the brass-works-polluted city of Moradabad in northern India.
Air pollution dramatically lowers vitamin D levels.

The Swedish Paradox is the strong association between cold weather and heart disease in Sweden.
Higher annual cardiac mortality is associated with residence in colder regions of Sweden.
Cold weather is a marker for low vitamin D levels.
Outdoor activity in cold weather is both curtailed and requires extensive clothing.
