Season of Birth

Season of birth is a good proxy for Vitamin D (for people far from the Equator)
Statistisically significant, but rarely greater than 20% change
Some health problems need Vitamin D in 2 or 3 trimesters, so are not associated with season
Perhaps some people in born in poor season will need more vitamin D all of their lives
