This talk will explore three medical dogmas: (1) Breast milk is perfect and babies need nothing else. (2) A mixed and varied diet will give you all the vitamins and micronutrients you need. (3) Exposure of hands and face to the sun provides sufficient vitamin D. These three dogmas may have prevented people from getting enough of the sunshine vitamin that we all need for optimum health. As well as examining these dogmas, Dr Gillie will discuss the weather, human evolution and why October is a good month in which to be born. A lecture by Dr Oliver Gillie as part of Cardiff Universities 'Science in Health' public lecture series.
