Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Dementia

Older adults with severe vitamin D deficiency have an increased risk of developing dementia, a recent study has found. This does not necessarily mean that vitamin D deficiency is a cause of dementia, as it is also possible that another unknown factor could cause someone to have both low vitamin D levels and dementia. Further study is needed to determine the nature of the relationship between vitamin D and dementia, but if it is indeed found to be a causal relationship, it could mean that simply eating more vitamin D-rich foods or taking supplements could reduce dementia risk in later life.

A little of sunshine especially in the winter will give you enough Vitamin D and no cancer. Just do not do tanning. White is alright, but black is beauty. Marry a black if you are white and really dream of black!

This article will boot the sales of vitamin D. Just go outside and get some sun and have a nice morning walk; our skins can produce vitamin D.

And we put them in warehouses and we forget about them.

Those who built the foundations of our lives and fought for our freedoms deserve better.
