Micronutrients, like all the thousands of little mineral compounds you get from fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are probably a lot more important for health than they’re given credit for.
So, in one of the first studies, if not The First, to look at how much people are getting across a range of several countries, -at least of some more widely-known compounds, The Euros are beginning to flunk.

They were mostly low in Vitamin D, which is understandable given the high latitudes.
I shudder to think how we would fare on a similar survey.
