UV Light More Important than Vitamin D in Preventing MS

At least, in mice, according to some brand new research, anyway.... I find it wonderful. I knew that the sun was doing something for me that little drops of a vitamin from a bottle could never do. Who knows if we will ever understand why. This is the best reason why medicine need not be 100% confined to what can be proven by science: we all know that sunlight and fresh air and pure water are good for us. Our bodies tell us so. Even if science disproves it, we'll still believe what we know from experience. How unscientific of us.
