“University of Manchester scientists, in collaboration with colleagues from other European centres, have shown that higher levels of vitamin D – primarily synthesised in the skin following sun exposure but also found in certain foods such as oily fish – are associated with improved cognitive function in middle-aged and older men. The study, published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, compared the cognitive performance of more than 3,000 men aged 40 to 79 years.”

I found this study interesting because of the amount of elderly peopleI know who are still so incredibly with it versus those I know who aren’t.  It always seems like those who have it going on up top to a surprising degree are the ones that worked good hard labour their life, such as on a Farm.  Interesting how the two can be corelated
