What would you do?


Health case study: Women, especially in the UK, are stuck in small houses indoors all day. They do not have sufficient Vitamin D (from Sunlight) ...the problem is so serious that they are warning that these women may break their spine due to the lack of vitamins... especially during pregnancy...so doctors are asking muslim women to go outdoors and remove their hijabs in order to get enough VitD ... however, there is no private park or private areas in the urban areas where one can take off the hijab and not be seen in public... the question is... what do you do in this scenario

Dr told me it was fine I get all the vitamin D necessary from my diet & sunlight, one doesn't need to lay out in the sun & get a tan apparently.

All these scare stories about ricketts & I've never met a single Muslim person who has it!

There is no reasons to not spend at least an hour every day in the sun, whether it is commuting to/from work, time with the kids in the park, gardening or just chilling via a walk. Try it; go for a walk and do some dhikr.

Being a houseplant is just too depressing a thought to bear... and it's completely within your control, unless you're in prison I guess.

.. and you don't have to remove the hijabs to get the Vit D. You get enough sunlight on your face, hands (and arms for those who expose them).

Even 15 minutes is usually sufficient, and I'm advocating an hour here!

This year I found out I had dangerously low amount of Vitamin D. Which surprised me because i drink milk every day... and love ice cream....
Doc put me on mega doses of vitamin D for a month and eventually I as 'normal'

ws,

so true about getting enough from hands etc and the diet/pills if u have severe lack of sunlight problem.

there is no need to take off hijab, that's just ridiculous. btw being uncovered in the sun for periods of time is NOT a good idea for anyone.

don't ppl have backyards or porches? or even windows that have sunlight coming in???

Sr Kathy, did the dr tell you why he thought you might have developed this deficiency suddenly?

I tend to regularyly take vitamin supplements and one cannot avoid the sun anyway, I'm out in it for at least two hours a day whilst travelling to & from work, & as sr. Jannah say we have large windows & a garden etc.

Being out in the sun without sun protection for ages on end is also dangerous.
