A team of researchers spent six years finding, 1.658 people aged 65 years or older who are at risk of vitamin D deficiency 53 percent developed a form of dementia and alzheimer’s. These conditions will be exacerbated if parents are subjected to underweight.
“Clinical trials are now needed to determine whether consuming foods such as fish or consuming vitamin D supplements can delay or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,” said study leader, Dr. David Llewellyn of the Exeter University Medical School at a Time, Sunday (10/8/2013).
David also expressed his joy for the current estimated there are more than 44 million people worldwide who suffer from dementia. This figure could even rise threefold by 2050.
