Rickets? Today?

According to an article in the Guardian newspaper, there has been a sharp rise in rickets in the UK, due in part to not enough sun exposure because of kids spending too much time on the computer and when they are in the sun parents are using too much sunscreen.

Any parent in LA will not be able to comprehend not using sun screen but when you have 360 days a year of sun, rickets is not an issue.....

Still, back to that old chestnut of computers/video games discouraging kids from getting outside and playing.
