2. Marks & Spencer adds Vitamin D to bread products High-street giant Marks & Spencer is the first U.K. store to add vitamin D to its entire bread range of products in an effort to curb the rise of the childhood illness rickets, which leads to soft bones and deformities. In the last 10 years, cases of rickets had quadrupled from 190 to 833 among children under 16 years old. The rise of rickets is attributed to kids staying indoors, more often playing with gadgets than engaging in an activity. Safe sun exposure is still the most excellent way to get natural vitamin D, but it can also be acquired through diet. Two slices of the vitamin E-enriched bread will provide a child’s 15 percent daily requirement. (mirror.co.uk)

The study involved children between 10 and 20 years old, and were mostly female. (health.unnews.com)
