Gwyneth Paltrow Broke Leg Because She Never Got Sun

I thought The Goopster was supposed to be the queen of nutrition. It turns out, though, that is not the case. According to her, she broke a bone, which required surgery, and she seems to imply it was because she never went out in the sun. Of course, she did not just say she broke a bone. That would be too simple. She instead says, "I suffered a pretty severe Tibial plateau fracture a few years ago (requiring surgery)." I love how she adds the surgery part. Just so we can really know how bad it was. I refuse to look it up, but at first when I skimmed it, I thought she was talking about some Tibetan plateau and we were going to have to listen to her talk about Buddhism or something.

It turns out she had the lowest amount of Vitamin D her doctors had ever seen. Oh, and not just doctor doctors, but she has eastern and western doctors. How come there are no northern and southern doctors? The doctors gave her a prescription for Vitamin D and told her to spend some time in the sun. How about just drinking some milk?

She balked at going out in the sun. "I was curious if this was safe, having been told for years to stay away from its dangerous rays, not to mention a tad bit confused." I don't understand the confused part and I don't think anyone has ever said don't go outside. She has her doctor talk about the benefits of the sun and thinks his comments might be met with shock and horror. She used the word incendiary. She loves throwing out big words. What he says is actually pretty interesting, and doesn't even use big words like The Goopster. Here is what he had to say.
