Doctor: Has Sun Scare Gone Too Far?

Another British physician is speaking out publicly that the peril of overzealous sun avoidance has gone too far and needs to be countered.


Dr. Pratik Sufi, a British surgeon specializing in weight loss, wrote in The Huffington Post that vitamin D deficiency has become ridiculous, as sun avoidance is the cause and can be corrected so easily. “It is difficult to believe that in this age of plenty where there is an epidemic of obesity, more than 50% of the population suffers from vitamin D deficiency,” Sufi wrote.


“A number of factors including sun avoidance, more people working in office than working in the fields, children preferring computers and television to playing outdoors, longer life and rising obesity may be contributing to the rising incidence. Patients who suffer from malabsorption and those who have undergone bariatric surgery like gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass or duodenal switch are especially vulnerable.”
