Children whose mothers had low exposure to sunlight — a natural source of vitamin D — during their first three months of pregnancy may have a higher risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) later in life. Low vitamin D levels have long been linked to a higher risk of MS.

Healthy recipe

Peanut Chile salsa

Cover a baking sheet with foil, and place 1/2 kgs of tomatoes on it. Broil (grilling close to heat) until blistered and charred on one side for five to six minutes. Turn the tomatoes over and repeat. Discard the core and blend. Toast one big garlic clove in a dry skillet. Add to blender, along with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 clove, 1 tbsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp dried oregano and 1.2 cup roasted peanuts. Blend to a purée, adding a little stock if needed. Heat oil in a saucepan and add the purée. Cook until it darkens, five to eight minutes. Add 2 cups of chicken stock and simmer, stirring often, for another eight to 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Serve with grains, steamed vegetables or fish. Serves 6. (NYT)
