A peer-reviewed dermatology journal this month featured an entire issue of pro-vitamin D research — further evidence that many in dermatology are questioning the anti-sun/anti-vitamin D positions of high-profile dermatology industry lobbying groups.
The journal Dermato-Endocrinology featured 19 vitamin D-related reports and studies in one issue. Click here to read the reports on-line.
“Lobbying groups for the dermatology industry have not only lobbied against UV exposure, but also against groups who have promoted the importance of vitamin D sufficiency,” Smart Tan Executive Director Joseph Levy said. “We think many in dermatology are uncomfortable with that position. It isn’t scientific. So we are glad to see a peer-reviewed journal taking a more-balanced approach.”
