Maybe because they ate the vitamin D?

Obesity also leads to people being fat.

Volume vs. surface area.

Volume always wins.

Only if we're very, very unfortunate do we see all that skin exposed to light.

I wonder how much is causation and how much is correlation.

Obese people probably stay indoors much more than non obese people.

Interesting. I'm a fatass, and my vitamin D is low. But, as pointed out upthread, I do spend most of my days under the flourescents. The glorious life of IT.

/seriously, try turning it off and on again.

Not fat, but all my joints started hurting. After some lab tests, it turns out a Vitamin D deficiency was also making me susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis in my 30s.

Solution: moved from DC to Seattle, where the IT guys get cubes with windows instead of stuck in the basement. Not that I get any more sun, since the co-workers close the blinds at the slightest hint of glare.

But I suppose the real solution was just eating my gummy vitamin supplements.
