Medical researchers from Knifecrime Island are concerned about a resurgence of rickets, the bone-deforming disease last popular in those precincts during the Victorian era. Rickets' big comeback is blamed on Vitamin D-deficiency in children, mostly due to the fact that kids today rarely venture out into the light of the sun, what with the all modern world's sedentary pleasures. But this is not just a British problem; even in civilized nations like our own the disease is becoming more prevalent. I blame that lady who told everyone to wear sunscreen.
