Islam: Bad For Women's Health

"...Conservative Muslim dress codes may be causing vitamin D deficiency in women by limiting their exposure to sunlight, humans' main source for the vitamin, according to new research.

Scientists had previously found high rates of vitamin D deficiency in Arab and East Indian women living in the United Arab Emirates. A follow-up study investigated the effect of vitamin D supplements on 178 UAE women, many of whom covered themselves entirely, faces and hands included, when outside their homes. Only two of the women did not have vitamin D deficiency prior to receiving supplements. The results were published by a team of scientists in the June issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.." (source)

Do you think the threat of osteoporosis, rickets or cancer will change Muslim men from forcing their women to cover from head to toe...?

Maybe the hijab/burqa were a grand design to suppress serotonin levels and keep their women unhappy and subservient...
