Vitamin D and Alzheimers

Thanks to the Instapundit for pointing out this article at FuturePundit:
Evidence For Vitamin D As Alzheimer's Risk Reducer

A scientist argues for prospective studies in the ability of vitamin D to cut the risk of Alzheimer's Disease.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, May 26, 2009 – There are several risk factors for the development of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Based on an increasing number of studies linking these risk factors with Vitamin D deficiency, an article in the current issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease (May 2009) by William B. Grant, PhD of the Sunlight, Nutrition, and Health Research Center (SUNARC) suggests that further investigation of possible direct or indirect linkages between Vitamin D and these dementias is needed.

i am going to be pounding down Vitamin D for the near future.
