Re: Natural vitamins for children

wow... a lot flack for that question!

Kids do need vitamin D in the winter apparently, not getting it all from sun exposure, and even less from diet...
Funny thing. Sending the slum kids from London for two weeks into the countryside each year, during the 1920s and 1930s, massively reduced the cases of rickets.

You really don't need much sun exposure.

For me, it's the word "natural" which triggers my suspicious response. There is absolutely no difference between a vitamin D molecule that is put together atom by atom, or made in a test-tube or vessel reactor, and a vitamin D molecule made by the UV interaction with the skin.
