Cord blood samples collected from 100 babies in London showed that those born in May had about 20% lower levels of vitamin D than November babies, possibly indicating a higher risk for developing multiple sclerosis. U.K. researchers also noted that May babies had roughly twice as many autoreactive T-cells compared with those born in November. The findings were published in the journal JAMA Neurology.
