How does UV index relate to vitamin D?
« on: 01/03/2011 01:30:12 »
Celia Tuttle  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Where I live in the Arizona desert, the Ultraviolet Index can range from 4 to 12 over the course of the year.   Is there any correlation between a higher UV index and the amount of vitamin D that's available for absorption by our skin?

Thanks for your help.  I love your show!
