Vitamin D – Double It!

We, with our dark winters in Minnesota, have known for a long time that we don’t get enough sun. A cottage industry around sun lamps has developed to serve us in the aphotic days of February. But, we just read Pollan’s “In Defense of Food” – should we just eat more food with Vitamin D in it? Apparently, you can’t get it from food. Our skin creates it when exposed to sun. And, sunscreen blocks it. 

Shari Roan wrote a nice piece recently in the LA Times that brings some clarity to the matter. Anyhow, I’m heading outside to get some sun!
