VitaminDWiki shows the many other problems of air pollution

Air Pollution reduces Vitamin D has the following reasons

  1. Pollution reduces the amount of time that people are outdoors
  2. Pollution attenuates the amount of UVB getting to the skin (by only a few percent)
  3. Pollution is often associated with hot temperatures, which is another reason to stay indoors
  4. The body fights the resulting Irritation/Inflammation of organs with vitamin D
  5. Vitamin D supplementation helps the body fight the effects of pollution
    • Inhaled vitamin D might turn out to be especially good form as it goes directly to the lungs
