CHRISTMAS GIFTS 3297971AI Mums in dark over sun's vitamin D By SARAH CODDINGTON A survey of more than 9000 mothers has exposed gaps in know- ledge about vitamin D's role in health. Researchers from Massey University Al- bany say they are con- cerned more than half of the Maori, Chinese and Indian mothers did not know people with darker skins need more sun to absorb the same amount of vitamin D as fairer skinned people. And a parallel survey of health workers, including doctors and nurses, found high levels of knowledge but a lack of understanding about what to tell patients. Study authors Cath Conlon and Pamela von Hurst say 90 percent of respondents knew vit- amin D comes from the sun and is needed for bone development. The full results of the survey were released at a symposium held at the university's Albany cam- pus. A speaker at the sym- posium suggested people should go out in the mid- day sun to increase their vitamin D levels. Cancer Society health promotion manager Jan Pearson agrees that adequate vitamin D is essential for general health, particularly for bone, joint, muscle and neurological function. Sensible sun protec- tion practices should not put people at risk of vit- amin D deficiency. A bal- ance is required between avoiding an increased risk of skin cancer and maintaining adequate vitamin D levels,'' Dr Pearson says. She says most Kiwis will get enough vitamin D by just being out and about during summer without deliberately exposing their skin. Dr Pearson warns against the use of sunbeds as a way of get- ting vitamin D. The intensity of radi- ation at some wave lengths from some sunbeds is several times higher than the intensity of radiation that occurs in sunlight at the earth's surface,'' Dr Pearson says. Who can? Kiwis can! The West Auckland film- goers who went to the Watties Cans Film Festi- val deserve rave reviews. People around New Zealand contributed to more than 45,000 cans being collected nation- ally for the Salvation Army. The event was one of the most successful festivals in recent years.
