Effect of Excessive Use of Sunscreen

The use of sunscreen protects the skin from the harmful radiations of the sun. However, it could also increase the risk for vitamin D deficiency, according to a study by a research team from Touro University. The study was published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. This clinical review brought to the fore the alarmingly high number of people who may be suffering from vitamin D deficiency -- nearly 1 billion people across the world.
