BetterYou - vitamin D survey 2013

Thank you for agreeing to help us in our research.

 
Vitamin D deficiency in the UK is reaching epidemic proportions. It is thought to cost the UK taxpayer £29 billion annually – more than a quarter of the NHS budget.

BetterYou, together with the NHS, is working hard to achieve a better understanding of the vitamin D status within the UK. This questionnaire will only take a few minutes to complete, but will help us with our goals.

Thank you for your time.
