A delightful new theoretical study has been published citing Vitamin D exposure as the likely source of Bilbo Baggins success in his adventures! The study by Dr Nicholas Hopkinson of Imperial College London also describes a life lived in darkness as the likely cause of the villains failure in the hugely popular book series and film franchise.
Sciencedaily.com reports that, according to the study, had Gollum, the Goblins and Smaug spent more time in the sunshine, they would have been much more successful in their nefarious pursuits! The original article was published in the Christmas issue of The Medical Journal of Australia and can be seen here
So remember to keep up your Vitamin D levels up with responsible exposure to UV light and you too can be as healthy as a hobbit?
All the Best For a Happy New Year!
