Your Baby’s Brain on Sunshine – Vitamin D and Neurodevelopment

The role for vitamin D in hippocampal and dopamine system development suggests effects on learning and memory and motor and/or reward systems may be possible. But longitudinal studies in humans are needed to fully address this question. These take time, so it may be years before we get the complete picture. Even with such studies, given the breadth and complexity of its roles in the brain, the sub-clinical effects of vitamin D deficiency may be subtle, diffuse, and difficult to detect. This is particularly the case in the more moderate form of deficiency common in the US and other developed countries.

Vitamin D has a far greater contribution to brain development than most people know about. If you’re expecting or you already have a baby, make sure that he or she doesn’t lack Vitamin D.

What I want to know though is how this irate customer got hold of eggs. Did he bring the eggs with him adhering to the scout motto of always being prepared – anticipating the need for something icky to throw at stores? Or is he an egg vendor who happened who just happened to be bringing his stock of eggs while lining up for an iPhone 4s?
