Sun Exposure, Vitamin D May Lower MS Risk

I know, this time of year, even getting out in the sun does little to nothing to boost your Vitamin D level (the sun isn't strong enough)----but getting out with the sun on your face is great for your soul (she says as she heads out the door to go walking as soon as this post is finished!).

WebMD has an article today on how both Vitamin D levels and sun exposure have preventative roles in developing multiple sclerosis. I suspect as the years go on, we are going to find more and more health issues that can be prevented or lessened by the practice of getting all patients to their optimal level of Vitamin D.
