UNBC researcher finds more health benefits of Vitamin D


Due North sat down with Dr. Jacqueline Pettersen a cognitive neurologist at the University of Northern British Columbia, and learned all about studies involving Vitamin D. According to Dr. Pettersen, people are not getting enough Vitamin D these days. This problem is especially bad here in northern communities like Prince George. The lack of Vitamin D can  affect brain function and bone development. Dr. Pettersen told CFUR that an increase in the intake of Vitamin D can help improve certain aspects of memory. Especially in the long winter months here in Prince George. Check out our interview and learn more.
