  2. I thought it was free school milk which practically eradicated rickets by the Fifties?

    • I think free school milk counts as improved nutrition!

      Interestingly, cows’ milk is relatively low in vitamin D. It does have a lot of calcium though, obviously. (Vitamin D is needed for the digestion of calcium.) I believe that people, especially children, are drinking less milk nowadays, which obviously can have a detrimental effect. The reduction in milk consumption is yet again due to health scares of course, this time about saturated fat consumption.

      This ought to be all about common sense and moderation, but those words seem to get lost in among all the hype from “researchers” via politicians and the media.
