Only one in ten children, aged six to 15 years, taking the sunshine vitamin in a clinical trial came down with flu compared with one in five given a dummy tablet. Mitsuyoshi Urashima, the Japanese doctor who led the trial, told The Times that vitamin D was more effective than vaccines in preventing flu.
Vitamin D was found to be even more effective when the comparison left out children who were already given extra vitamin D by their parents, outside the trial. Taking the sunshine vitamin was then shown to reduce the risk of flu to a third of what it would otherwise be.
There were only 43 new cases of the mild swine flu reported in Germany last week, prompting criticism of the decision by governments and WHO to retain the pandemic emergency level 6 declaration, report local media.
According to Germany's Robert Koch Institute, 225,921 people in the country have fallen sick with the swine flu since spring 2009 and a total of 243 people died, far fewer than from the regular seasonal flu.
