Abstract
  • Vitamin D sufficiency supports cardiovascular health and lower cancer risk. Rates of vitamin D insufficiency vary by racial/ethnic group, in part because skin pigment limits sunlight penetration. However race/ethnicity is an unreliable marker of vitamin D deficiency, given individual differences in skin pigment, or phototype, and other characteristics. Clarifying associations between skin phototype and vitamin D levels will permit researchers to identify other important root causes of these racial/ethnic disparities. This study seeks to investigate whether there is a link between vitamin D insufficiency and skin phototype.
