Researchers from Cornwall think the key to beating childhood eczema and allergies could be sunshine.

Teams from The Knowledge Spa in Truro have been studying groups living in areas where there is lots of it and those living in duller climates.

Their conclusion is that kids who are often out in the sun have fewer intolerances than those who are not.

Doctor Nick Osborne led the research. He said, "Obviously too much sunshine can be bad for you. But take it easy in the sun and it can provide a healthy option for your family. We are starting to get a body of evidence that will lead us to some conclusions about the importance vitamin D. In fact there are some trials starting up where people are getting capsules of vitamin D and hopefully that will provide even better evidence."
