Sunlight could help prevent food allergies

by Mushroom Enthusiast on 10 February , 2012

Did you know increased exposure to sunlight could help ward off food allergies? A study of 7,600 children found those living in southern Australia were more likely to develop eczema and food allergies than those living further north.

Professor Katie Allen from the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute said the results support the theory that sunlight, or more specifically vitamin D, may be linked to food allergies and eczema. Should it be proven, the solution is relatively simple. Vitamin D is found not only in sunlight but in certain foods such as mushrooms, eggs and fish. Another great reason to get out and grab some vitamin D mushrooms.
