VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY IN OLDER PEOPLE INCREASES THE RISK OF DEMENTIA

 

ACCORDING TO UK RESEARCHERS, WRITING IN NEUROLOGY WHO EXAMINED ABOUT 1650 PEOPLE AGED OVER 65 YEARS OF AGE.  THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST STUDY TO EXAMINE THIS LINK BUT IT WAS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE. AT THE PRESENT TIME THERE ARE OVER 800,000 PEOPLE N THE UNITED KINGDOM WITH DEMENTIA AND IT IS EXPECTED TO RISE TO OVER 1 MILLION BY 2021.  VITAMIN D COMES FROM FOODS SUCH AS OILY FISH AND EXPOSING YOUR SKIN TO SUNLIGHT.  THE SKIN OF OLDER PEOPLE BECOMES LESS EFFICIENT IN BEING ABLE TO FORM VITAMIN D.  THERE WAS ALSO A LINK WITH CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE AND STROKE WITH REDUCED LEVELS OF VITAMIN D.
