In Tuesday’s Keys sitting Mrs Beecroft is questioning the present situation on Ritalin prescriptions. Any discussion of this subject has to be welcomed. While natural supplements are subjected to ever-increasing scrutiny and controls strong medication is seldom the subject of investigation.
All the more encouraging then to note that Zak Hall is questioning the present guidelines on vitamin D. With children slathered in sunlotion and “protected” from the sun cases of rickets are on the increase in the UK – rickets is caused by lack of vitamin D. The sun is our main and accessible source of this vitamin. Vitamin D is vital for immune system function.
These questions have to be good news.
