I agree with this. I live in southeast alaska that has cloud coverage probably about 80% of the time. Which means 20 minutes of sun a day is nearly impossible. We give dd trivisol lbecause of this, and because my mother has MS which has affected our presonal life enough to be worrid enough to give dd the vitamins (vit. d deficincey has been linked to MS)
