A London coroner has written a letter to the Health Secretary calling for all pregnant and breastfeeding women to take vitamin D supplements. After holding an inquest into the death of a three-month-old last week, Andrew Walker decided to write to Andrew Lansley.
The baby was taken to a GP in July this year and was diagnosed with a suspected viral infection, and sent home with nasal drops. After a telephone conversation with another doctor, his parents were told to give him paracetamol. However his parents were worried and called an ambulance, where "it was recognised he was seriously unwell" when he was taken to Northwick Park hospital. The baby's death was caused by a septic inflammation of the heart and an abnormal aortic heart valve.
The coroner's court was told a lack of vitamin D had exacerbated the progress of the infection and a consultant said women should be told to take the vitamin when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Mr Walker said in his letter that he should think about ''increasing public awareness of vitamin D deficiency'', and that all pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should take 10mcg of Vitamin D every day.Do you agree with taking supplements during pregnancy or breastfeeding or not? If you're planning to serve dinner at an Under the Sea-themed party, you'll want to make sure none of your guests is allergic to shellfish.

Researchers have warned that as many as one in 100 pupils in UK schools could be taking time off because they suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome.
Chronic fatigue - also called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) - causes excessive tiredness, concentration issues, mood swings and memory difficulties. The study, which was published in the BMJ Open journal, looked at 2,855 pupils at three schools and discovered 28 were absent from school with ME.
After studying every pupil between the ages of 11-16 at three schools in Bath, researchers identified 461 pupils who missed school for at least one day a week over six weeks. Five children had already been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, but another 23 cases were discovered.

The study showed 1% of children had the condition and the illness was the cause of 6% of the high number of absences. The chief executive of the Association of Young People with ME, Mary-Jane Willows, said the problems caused by the illness was "horrendous" and that "1% is a phenomenal number.
He added: "There is everything to play for in terms of outcome for chronic fatigue syndrome in kids. Unless your name happens to be Madonna, you might assume that you'd be feeling less competitive by the age of 50 - but scientists now believe that the reverse is true. Rather than mellowing with age, new research from the University of Oregon indicates that we're actually at our most competitive when we reach our half-century. The findings could impact upon the workplace where younger, more obviously ambitious workers are assumed to have the edge over their older colleagues.
As part of the study, hundreds of volunteers aged from 25 to 75 were asked to solve maths equations as quickly as possible. They were given the choice of playing on their own or taking on a rival with a cash incentive for the winner.
Almost 70 per cent of men aged 45-54 chose to go head-to-head with a rival, compared to 50 per cent in the 25-34 age group. Women were found to be less competitive than men, with only one in three choosing to go head-to-head. Researchers believe that this is because men need to feel socially dominant as they age.Have you become more competitive with age?
