Babies From Space
…ok, just babies in a sun-bed.
These babies in an orphanage are getting a sun-bath, which was once a common procedure during the winter months in order to stave off vitamin D deficiency in those who couldn’t or didn’t go outside.
The skin produces vitamin D when it’s exposed to the sun, and without vitamin D, the body can’t absorb or utilize calcium, resulting in weakened bones and a host of other problems, which, when it occurs in children, is called “rickets”. In adults, chronic vitamin D or phosphorus deficiency leads to osteomalacia, which is a similar condition, but does not lead to stunted growth, obviously.
The stylish goggles protect the baby’s eyes, as they’re easily damaged by direct exposure to ultraviolet light.
"In every moment you only have one real choice: to be aware of the Self or to identify with the body and the mind."
