One of my favourite blogs to read is Information is Beautiful. I am 100% a visual learner. In fact, I have a hard time understanding ideas or concepts until I have written them down or drawn them out. One of their recent posts caught my eye because just the plain sight of the sunshine yellow post made me happy.
The post was on worldwide vitamin D deficiency. See the full visualization here.
Now, I LOVE living in Canada. The geese, the moose, the mountains, the pine trees, squirrels frolicking in the parks. But, during the month of December - it's almost unbearable. It's not very cold out right now, but it's dark. Dark in the morning. Dark at night. It's 4:19 and it's already getting dark! And it makes me crazy!
So I found the post super interesting because for one - it was yellow. And I barely see the sun these days, so anything sunny gets my attention like smack in the butt! And two - it seems without a doubt, that we Canadians are vitamin D deficient. And to solve the problem - it appears the best option is to eat...cod liver oil? Which I probably won't do, no matter how many cods we have in our ocean. *shudder*
Maybe I'll wait for their next visualization about how economically beneficial it would be if Canadians could move to Turks and Caicos for December. Think of how many codfish lives we would save!
