Protecting yourself against infectious diseases during winter

Protecting yourself against infectious diseases during winter can be a significant challenge. Evaluating the results of clinical trials involving more than 10,000 people in 14 countries, British researchers have recently demonstrated that vitamin D supplements could significantly reduce the occurrence of illnesses like the common cold, ear and sinus infections, pneumonia and bronchitis. According to Adrian Martineau of the University of London, “daily or weekly vitamin D supplements will mean 3.25 million fewer people would get at least one acute respiratory infection a year” in the UK alone.
