Sunlight During Pregnancy Can Reduce the Risk of Asthma in Children Later On


Doctors Scott Weiss and Augusto Litonjua , both professors at Harvard Medical School, hypothesized that higher levels of vitamin D in pregnant women would reduce the risk of asthma in their baby. They also theorized that sunlight was the best source of this vitamin. Their hypothesis was confirmed by a team of economists studying ways to reduce healthcare costs. (805) 527-9600
