Lack of Sunshine Causes Flu Season?

I have long believed a connection exists between the lack of winter sun and illness. Now there is a Harvard study that backs up my contentions, according to Instapundit.

I have long observed that my attitude and moods tend to suffer as we head into February and March (which I blamed on the "Ides of March" during my youth), and several of my med school professors pitched the idea that it was probably due to the lack of sunlight during the Chicago winter.

It might be time to start shopping for the artificial lights that boost vitamin D production in the skin.
