Expect more health problems in the UK this winter – Nov 2012

Derived from Britain's bad summer will see epidemic of vitamin deficiency: expert The Telegraph, Nov 2012

Highlights for 2012

  • 18 % fewer hours of sunlight hours than average of the last 30 years
  • Fewer hours of sunlight than past ten years.
  • Parts of northern England recorded sunshine hours in summer similar to that of late winter.
  • Already worst whooping cough for decades
    (UK, Western Washington, Montana, etc. which have all had a cloudy 2012 summer)

There were so few hours of sunlight in in the UK in 2012 that many were unable to re-stock vitamin D levels
