New research from Australia has found that children who spend half an hour a day outside in the sun reduce their risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
The finding that sun exposure reduces the risk of inflammatory bowel disease is consistent with previous research from China showing that vitamin D is effective in the control of this health problem. Vitamin D is produced naturally in the body when skin is exposed to sunlight.
The prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease is increasing worldwide, with around 3 million people in Europe and 1.5 million in the United States now affected by it. Given that pharmaceutical-based medicine offers no cure or effective treatment, it is highly significant that, in the conclusion to their study, the Chinese researchers not only stated that it makes sense to recommend vitamin D to patients, but also that doing so has simple, effective, safe, and inexpensive advantages.
