Multiple Sclerosis and Sunlight

According to some research, lower levels of vitamin D, which we get mainly from sunlight, makes individuals more susceptible to multiple sclerosis. Research has shown that people who live at higher latitudes (where there is less sunlight) have a higher risk for developing multiple sclerosis. One study showed that increased sunlight exposure from age six to 15 was associated with a 70% drop in multiple sclerosis risk.
