Interesting chat on Radio 4 Women's Hour yesterday. A food journalist (who's name I've forgotten) was saying one of the reasons that many people are so short of Vitamin D is because so many of us have stopped using whole milk (ie silver top milk) and are drinking skimmed or semi-skimmed.
She said the amount of fat in whole milk is small (I think she said 3%). When it is skimmed or semi-skimmed it has had all of the Vit D and Vit C removed.
She also believes that the whole argument against fats and cholesterol is unravelling. Having high cholesterol myself I've read a lot about this on the internet. Seems more and more people in the nutrition and medical fields are starting to question if it is really healthy to lower the fats in our diets and if statins are actually good for us at all.
Anyway, didn't mean to go off on that tangent... just really meant to say that if you want to increase your Vitamin D intake using whole milk is a good way to do it.
