Office workers are chronically deficient in vitamin D due to spending too much time indoors

Now that summer is well and truly here, we are all getting plenty of sun, right? If you work in an office, the answer is probably no, and it’s a far bigger deal than you might think. A recent study from Alberta University in Canada revealed that 91 percent of office workers are not getting enough vitamin D, with more than 75 percent having a deficiency. Indoor workers, like IT workers and secretaries, can spend eight hours or more inside each day. Moreover, those who work conventional hours tend to only have their mornings and evenings free for getting sun, and sunlight is comparatively low at these times.
