Nanny Unbans The Sun II

As we enjoy the veritable British "Spring heatwave" (12 degrees here on the Sarf coast!), and await "flaming" June, loyal readers will recall that a couple of weeks ago I wrote that Nanny may be changing her mind about the damage that claimed the sun does to us:
"..some wise owls from my old university, Edinburgh, who have conducted some research that suggests that sunlight helps reduce blood pressure, cutting heart attack and stroke risks and even prolonging life."
Well, it seems it's not just the wise owls from Edinburgh who have shown that sunshine is in fact good for us; there are also wise owls at King's College London, who have identified that the vitamin D created by exposure to sunlight may help those with asthma.

Prof Catherine Hawrylowicz is quoted by the BBC:
"We know people with high levels of vitamin D are better able to control their asthma - that connection is quite striking.
We think that treating people with vitamin D could make steroid-resistant patients respond to steroids or let those who can control their asthma take less steroids."
Ironically, she is of the view that the culture (promulgated by Nanny and manufacturers of sun creams) of covering up in the sun and using sun cream may have increased asthma rates.

What's the betting that Nanny tries to rubbish these findings?

    I am fortunate in that I do not suffer from asthma, but I know plenty of people who do. I do, however, always feel good on a nice warm sunny day, and do not use any sunscreen (shock, horror! from Nanny and her minions!).

    Me too My Lord!

    It does strike me though, that more and more kids are using inhalers. My own grandsons are still at primary school and they have to wear hats that look like those from Lawrence of Arabia, when they go outside for their breaks if there is only the faintest trace of the sun. Sadly though, they have become rather brainwashed by the education system or, the state's indoctrination system, as I prefer to call it.

    If Nanny poked her nose in less often and just gave one piece of advice, viz, Everything in moderation, I am sure people would be healthier, wealthier and wiser!

  3. And that nasty CO2 is proving to be rather nice too...
