Getting the Sunshine In: Badger Talk with Kevin Walters

Vitamin D supplements, vitamin D milk and, yes, even vitamin D beer – they all originated right here in Wisconsin. But why here, and how did they do it? The answers to those questions involve a millennia old mystery about the connections between diseases and foods, a 19th century scientific competition to be the first to figure out the secrets of nutrition, and the 20th century emergence of American consumerism. They also involve a heavy dose of what we like to call the Wisconsin Idea.

Join us at the Prairie du Chien Memorial Library to hear from WARF’s Kevin Walters.
