Vitamin D and Alzheimer's Disease

Does Vitamin D play a role in the development of Alzheimer's? See what the Journals of Gerontology reported in December of 2012

Higher vitamin D dietary intake is associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Women who developed Alzheimer's disease had lower baseline vitamin D intakes (an average of 50.3 micrograms per week) than those who developed no dementia at all (an average of 59.0 micrograms per week).
