Leading NZ Newspaper Reports On Device For measuring Vitamin D

A recent New Zealand Herald article covers the groundbreaking research undertaken in New Zealand.

A New Zealand engineer has invented a “cutting-edge” device to calculate just how much sunshine we need to stay healthy.

It’s exciting to see such research take place as it opens up the possibilities for full-scale research into the manner in which Vitamin D is absorbed by humans.  The article states:

Around half of New Zealand adults have insufficient vitamin D and 4 per cent of women and 2 per cent of men are vitamin D-deficient.

With figures like that it’s more and more important that such investigation takes place.  The full article is available here:  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10637754
