Dark Skinned and Veil Wearers Should be Screened for Vitamin D

I had never thought of this population as not getting enough Vitamin D from the sun, but it makes sense. Read the article in Medical News Today. Please note, many doctors (including mine) do not feel that 400 IU's of Vitamin D daily is an adequate dose, I take 5000 IU's daily and have never had a problem.
