I've been giving my 14 year old 2,000IU of vitamin D daily for the last year. We live in southern Ca. and he's outside in the sun almost everyday...but he's fair, like his Dad (he's his mini-me) and wears sunscreen. I just think it's a good thing. Also a good idea for kids to eat healthy dairy products. Jeff takes 6,000IU vit. D a day and gets his sun.
I know Bob wants the study to back this up....so do I. Just thought it was interesting to post, as it looks like a roll-out preview to the Plos publication. I don't think Dr. Ebers would make such claims without science behind it...and I don't think the Times would print an "agenda" series on MS and vitamin D, invoking Oxford, without facts behind it. But I could be wrong....(it's happened once or twice before
) Once again, time will tell. Til then, nothing wrong with some vitamin D supplementation.
