Vitamin D deficiency in BPO employees

A lucrative job in a comfortable air conditioned atmosphere for BPO and software employees doesn't imply a healthy lifestyle. People working on night shifts suffer from vitamin D deficiency owing to the lack of exposure to sunlight. Normally these people work hard during night and sleep in the day time staying indoors almost the entire day thereby hiding from the sun. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that is naturally manufactured in the body when sunlight kisses our skin. Vitamin D deficiency will soften the bones and leads to a variety of diseases like osteoporosis, osteomalacia, chronic fatigue including muscular weakness and pain. Vitamin D deficiency syndrome is more common among the dark skinned and those who don't respect the sun and prefer staying in the shade always. The easy way to prevent the disorder is to let the sunlight fall on our skin for at least half an hour a day. But that doesn't mean you must stand on your rooftop at 12PM in the afternoon in the baking sun. The best approach is to go out for a walk in the morning or evening in the moderate sun. We must also ensure that we eat food rich in calcium to fortify our bones.
