Now neurologists around the world can advise patients to take vitaminD without feeling foolish that it remains "unproven".

February 7, 2011 — A new study appears to cement the suspected link between sun exposure and lower rates of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Australian case-control study found that past and current sun exposure and serum vitamin D levels are independently associated with a reduced risk for a central nervous system (CNS) first demyelinating event (FDE). The association remained after adjusting for potential confounders and did not vary by study region, sex, or type of demyelination.

What's interesting is that they looked at skin damage (past sun exposure) too.
