A Glass Alternative Required

North East United States braces with severe cold weather for at least 6 months in a year. Temperature dips below freezing for many days and it is difficult to stand outside and get the required direct sunlight.

Vitamin D deficiency is common and so are the associated diseases.

Getting sunlight via a glass window does not work, as glass cuts the UVB rays which help in generating Vitamin D.

If there is a glass alternative that can allow UVB rays to pass thru, it could be used in at least one or two sun-facing windows, however it is not yet commonly known or popular.
