Australian dermatologists had lower vitamin D levels than elderly in hospitals – 2009

Clipped from Huffingtonpost May 2013

This begs the big question: have we gone too far?
Incredibly, in sun-drenched Australia, more than 80% of dermatologists were found to have low vitamin D levels (3).
In fact, their vitamin D levels were even lower than elderly patients in a Melbourne hospital!
It's a mad stat, and leads us to ask; have we simply become too 'sun smart' for our own good?
