    Hello dr ketch,
    I’ll like to know your take on relationship between calcium and vitamin D because on your programme, the milk you advertise focus only on calcium but am a lil concerned that you are not talking about vitamin D seeing that most of the milk have low levels of vitamin D.

    Like

    • Hello Wura, thanks for writing in. Vitamin D is needed for proper absorption of calcium and in some of the ‘milk’ episodes, focus was on that. There was actually an episode on the fortification of milk (where of course, Vitamin A, D, E etc were discussed) and some other episodes provided sources of Vitamin D. Cheers
