Vitamin D indicator
Every year millions of people suffers from Vitamin D deficiency resulting in large health effects on a global scale. One of the causes of Vitamin D deficiency is due to lack of exposure to UV radiation, which stimulates Vitamin D production. The lack of UV exposure can for example be due to lack of outdoor visits due to working indoors. Generally, a small amount of UV radiation is enough for the human body to create sufficient amount of Vitamin D.
