How do you prevent rickets?
Rickets are caused by a severe lack of vitamin D. To prevent rickets is to consume vitamin D enriched foods such as butter, eggs, fish oil and green vegetables. (Vitamin D is also formed when the body is exposed to morning sunlight from 8 to 11 o'clock.)
Vitamin D supplements help prevent rickets if given along with breastfeeding for infants. If you are asking for an adult then there really is no way to prevent rickets because you would already have it. Rickets is considered a Vitamin D deficiency and most of the time develops in kids under the age of 5. Vitamin D would also be helpful for people who already have rickets by keeping the symptoms at bay.
