    Default Why Vitamin D Matters So Much To Children

    Parents are always telling their children to get out from behind their screens and play outdoors—and now there's a compelling health reason why they could be right.
    Children with low levels of vitamin D—the 'sunshine' vitamin—are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension) even when they are very young.

    In fact, they are more than twice as likely to become hypertensive between the ages of three and 18 if their vitamin D levels are always low. Children born with reduced levels run a 60 per cent increased risk of hypertension.

    My generation wasn't even wanted in the house, nor did we want to be there. "Go play outdoors," we were told, no matter the weather — and unless it was pouring rain, that's what we did.

    More time outside soaking up the sun rays may also help reduce the high cholesterol levels in a growing number of children consuming unhealthy fast food diets. Apparently, the sun rays use the cholesterol in the skin to make vitamin D.

    And that's how we survive. I don't think today's kids can do that what we did in our time
