New research from Exeter University says a lack of Vitamin D is associated with a much greater increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's.

A team, led by Dr David Llewellyn from the University's Medical School found that the study participants who were severely deficient in Vitamin D were more than twice as likely to develop the conditions. Vitamin D is found in foods such as oily fish.
