Why You May Need More Sun!

Are you excited for summer weather to be here? So is your body!

The much-publicized injury to Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware on March 31 has put a spotlight on Vitamin D deficiency, a condition that affects over three-fourths of Americans. Vitamin D’s job in our body is to absorb calcium into the blood and use it to build stronger bones, a process that may have been inefficient in Ware’s leg, causing the gruesome break in his tibia. I took a look at the scientific process behind the creation of Vitamin D from sunlight, and how that’s important for you as you get outdoors this summer.
