Vitamin D Reduces Risk Of Juvenile Onset Diabetes

February 3, 2010: 02:15 AM EST
One of the authors of a scholarly article associating lower risk of type I (juvenile onset) diabetes with sun-derived vitamin D will participate in a statewide education campaign to inform parents of the importance of vitamin D from milk, the California Milk Processor Board announced. The journal article reported a lower incidence of type 1 diabetes in countries closer to the equator, a higher incidence farther from the equator. Though the article itself does not mention milk, co-author Dr. Cedric Garland urges parents to include vitamin D fortified foods like milk in their diet, in addition to reasonable daily exposure to sunlight and a vitamin D3 supplement.
