Working in Shifts? You might have Vitamin D deficiency

According to a new study, the urban population is facing a major health issue in the form of Vitamin D deficiency. The condition is found heavily on people who work in shifts. People who work for long hours inside the office without getting exposed to the sun were also found to have such problems.

“Vitamin D production by the body is reliant on sunshine and UV exposure so any activity that reduces exposure tends to reduce vitamin D levels. Sunlight deprivation in young medical professionals, who may have particularly long working hours, and other indoor workers, puts them at higher risk of both vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency.” The researcher noted.

With the condition on the rise, adding Vitamin D to your diet could be an easy way to avoid the situation. Some food items that can help you with Vitamin D are Fatty fish, like tuna, mackerel, and salmon, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks.
