    I found this very interesting so I am posting it in the off topic area,

    It looks like vitamin d has been found to help with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

    Hell, I better start on that immediately! Now if I could just remember where the vitamin storage is at…

    Thanks Freedom!

    The good thing about Vitamin D is that most of us can get enough just by being out in the sun regularly. Even going for walks in the winter on sunny days will do it. Last winter I kept getting asked where I had gone on vacation because I hadn’t gotten the typical winter pasty white look. I hadn’t gone anywhere other than hour or two walks up my road most days, though I think the “color” I got was wind burn.

    True enough, sunlight is a great way to get vitamin D. I read that the normal range is 40-50 ng/ml in the blood, and 20 is terribly low. In my case my last blood test showed I was down to 6 ng/ml. Unfortunately there isn’t much sun in my part of the world right now so I have to take a liquid supplement daily for the present.

    A lot of people are having low vit D because of years of campaigns to prevent melanoma [skin cancer], so people often use sunscreen creams to block UV rays, or to prevent burning. As a result many are not getting the vit D from the sun they need.

    Also some that are getting sun still are low on there D count, not everyone absorbs the sun’s sunlight the same. So when you go the the Doc have them test your blood for D level.
