Obesity may cause low vitamin D levels

Comment

"“the most likely explanation” for the association is that obese people store more vitamin D in their fat" but applying occam's razor the simplist explanation is that the obese expose themselves to less sunlight. are the genetic variants associated with high bmi known to code for proteins involved in fat metabolism rather than, say, the reticular activating system or dopaminergic pathways? (lower activity levels resulting in less exposure to sunlight.)
