These conclusions are based on the findings of two reports being launched on Tuesday 17th September at the Cornerstone Centre St John's, Edinburgh by the University of Birmingham. The first report, co-authored by Professor Nando Sigona and Dr Marie Godin , draws on interviews with EU families currently (N=132) and formerly (N=40) residing in the UK.

Too little sunlight - and specifically UVB exposure - in pregnancy has been linked with a higher risk of learning disabilities. In a new study looking at more than 422,500 school-age children from across Scotland, researchers found that low UVB exposure during pregnancy was associated with risk of learning disabilities.
