Air Pollution reduces Vitamin D

Air pollution decreases vitamin D by:

  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, another reason to not go outdoors

Note: Tokyo is much closer to equator, so should have much more UVB than NZ
Note: You can ignore the blue = winter line
