Vitamin D

Aside from watching speedy students on Glee dance their pants off on "Vitamin D", what else about vitamin D? Well, there's this really interesting snippet from Neatorama about how people in Northern Latitudes don't get enough sunlight to make their D quota. They needed to get more of it from food sources. Which is why people in Northern latitudes evolved the ability to drink milk at some point. Voila, more vitamin D available = fewer rickets? Always a good time. But those lactose intolerant people of the world did not inherit that milk-drinking-in-adulthood gene. It's innerestin'.

Hey, you know what I want right now? Some Rick Rolls. HAH. From Neatorama.
