Sunscreen Causes Vitamin D Deficiency

Tyler Attrill, a 12-year-old girl has vitamin D deficiency that may have been caused by using strong sun cream. The condition came to light when she failed to recover properly from surgery.

According to BBC News:

"Tyler Attrill used factor 50 cream which, according to her consultant, could have deprived her of the essential vitamin and caused the bone disease rickets."

The condition, which is likely shared by many others, caused Tyler pain for a number of years before it was diagnosed.
