A recent study of 68 obese adolescents found that there was low vitamin D levels in all of the girls (72 percent were deemed deficient and 28 percent insufficient) and in 91 percent of the boys (69 percent deficient and 22 percent insufficient). The researchers don't know if it is because the kids don't consume enough food with vitamin D (really?) or whether they are just stuck inside, playing video games, not getting enough sun, and getting fatter. Hmmmm, tough call. We are becoming a country of human s'mores.
