During most of year, however, Norway’s denizens endure lengthy “vitamin D winters” – a season marked by the absence of sufficient ultraviolet B (UVB) rays to induce vitamin D production in the skin. Earlier this month I had the pleasure of visiting the Land of the Midnight Sun. My trip commenced in Norway’s cultural capital city of Oslo and […]
