A recent study in the Huffington Post claims that sunlight, which many people try to avoid, is actually vital to health due to the production of vitamin D.

Dr Frank Lipman writes that "our bodies use sunlight to help the skin produce the vitamin D it needs to build bones, quell inflammation, bolster the immune system and protect against cancer."

He recommends that people expose themselves to the sun at least 15-30 minutes a day, two to four times a week.

An easy way to open your home to sunlight is to use solar screen shades, sheer weave roller shades or Silverscreen shades. These shades will filter heat and UV rays from the sun, but still allow the light into the house.

They are perfect for people arriving home from work who want to sit on the couch and absorb the sun's rays, but not the humidity. Silverscreen and solar shades also eliminate glare, making it far easier to read, watch TV, or use the computer.

If one is really looking to absorb sunlight, try the roller shades. These shades filter the sun and are easily pulled up, allowing the sun in, and are just as easily pulled down when the summer light becomes too much.
