Resumen An erythaema dose of ultraviolet light (5.5 milliequivalent radium/m2) was administered to 95 women during the fall, winter and early spring (8h/day). Vitamin supplements were provided for 4 months (1 Dec.-31 Mar.). The vitamin dose was adjusted to take account of each subject's job. Clinical examination and tests showed that vitamin supplementation improved the overall state of health of the workers, decreased the fragility of capillaries in their skins and increased the light sensitivity of their visual analysers. The activity of their immune systems was also increased. However, hypovitaminosis was only reduced, not eliminated. It is recommended that vitamin supplementation be administered throughout the winter and spring (Dec.-May).
