Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

“To create vitamin D, which plays an important role in bone health and development, the body needs exposure to sunlight. As we move into autumn, the days get shorter and colder and our exposure to sunlight decreases, making the colder months of the year a crucial time to watch vitamin D intake. Supplements can play an important role but one question is, how much?” — Reuters News Service, “Vitamin D Shifts into Focus”, Sept. 4, 2008

That’s going to be a key focus in Nashville.”
