Science says that nobody is getting enough sun and we all need to be on a beach...more or less.
Perhaps it’s our penchant for hyperbole, but following a study published in the Journal of Dermo-Endocrinology, we’re booking flights for sunnier cities ASAP.
Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study revealed that 32 percent of Americans suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. And the study estimates that about 13 percent of American deaths could be attributable to lack of Vitamin D.
But before anybody talks about the Vitamin D supplements they’re taking: The researchers of the study said that no pill is a good substitute for time spent in the sun.
So it seems like the only solution is to get out to sunnier places. (Especially after Daylight Saving Time.) Here are some ideas for where to go to get your Vitamin D counts back where they should be.
