National Light Shed on Vitamin D Deficiency

(Homer) - The Council of State Governments recently adopted a
resolution mimicking Rep. Paul Seaton's House Concurrent Resolution 5
that unanimously passed the legislature in April.

HCR 5 looks to raise awareness of the chronic, and sometimes
debilitating, effects vitamin D deficiency carries. The resolution
also points out that Alaska has the lowest rates in the nation in
resident's comparative blood tests according to numerous studies and
data provided as back-up to testimony on the resolution.

"It is encouraging to know that Alaska is ahead of other states in
addressing the health of our population on some very critical
diseases," Seaton, R-Homer, said. "I am pleased that CSG has seen fit
to propose to other states that they investigate adoption of
prevention of disease as a primary model of health care and recognize
vitamin D supplements as a first step toward prevention."
