When You Are Born Impacts the Development of Your Immune System

Researchers in London say the month a baby is born could impact the development of their immune system.

Scientists found that babies born in May have significantly lower levels of vitamin D, which helps fight diseases, than babies born in November.

Researchers say that's because the baby's mothers are exposed to less sunlight in the winter months, which means less Vitamin D.

Scientists say more research is needed into the possible benefits of Vitamin D supplements during pregnancy.
