Lack of Sunshine Vitamin Linked to Cognitive Decline

"Researchers have for the first time identified a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and cognitive impairment in a large-scale study of older people.

The study looked at almost 2,000 adults aged 65 and over. As levels of vitamin D went down, levels of cognitive impairment went up. Those with the lowest levels of vitamin D were more than twice as likely to be cognitively impaired."

Can we take a million of the stimulus and give sufficient vitamin D to everyone in Washington? :)
