Call for vitamin D supplements to tackle Scots MS rates - BBC News

This is on the health pages of the BBC News website:

 

Rates of multiple sclerosis are so "dire" in Scotland that essential foods should be fortified with vitamin D, according to an Oxford academic.

Professor of clinical neurology, George Ebers, has published a study showing a strong link between the condition and vitamin D deficiency.

He says the Scottish government could face legal action from people who go on to develop MS in future.

Scotland's chief medical officer said trials of supplements were needed.

Scotland has the highest levels of MS in the world and the lowest levels of vitamin D, due to a lack of sunshine and a diet low in oily fish.

Sounds like a brilliant idea. 

Vit D has been supplimented to margerine by law to prevent rickets for decades.
