  • "The story goes back to the 1920s, and it takes place in a bakery in a country (Canada) where hundreds of thousands of children were suffering painful and debilitating effects of rickets."
  • "McGroarty’s patent formula used a compound called ergosterol, which is a steroid alcohol found in fungi that converts to Vitamin D when irradiated with UV light."
  • "He added it to yeast, irradiated it with quartz lamps, and used that yeast to make Vitamin D-enriched bread."
