Do you get headaches quite frequently?

Do you get headaches quite frequently? Perhaps you’re not getting enough sun. That’s according to a study carried out at a Finnish university among over 2500 men between the ages of 42 and 60 which shows that chronic headaches can be a result of a deficiency in vitamin D, a substance naturally produced by the body if it receives enough UVB radiation from sunlight. The men with the lowest levels of vitamin D had more than twice the risk of chronic headaches than those with the highest levels.
