Brain Disorder Bill Hits EUR800 Billion as Europe Faces 'Ticking Bomb', Warns New Study from The European Brain Council
It's the same for all brain disorders not just Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
But the key sentence in that report is
Sleep disorders cost 348 euros per patient per year -- but almost 45 million people suffer from them, compared to the 500,000 people who suffer from multiple sclerosis and the 200,000 with brain tumors.
We all know the human body is set to produce the neuroprotection Vitamin d from dawn to dusk given UVB exposure and given daytime bright light exposure and darkness at night the neuroprotection of MELATONIN from dusk to dawn.
Not only do most of those 45million people with sleep disorders not get sufficient vitamin d from UVB exposure during the day most will be suffering from light pollution(street lighting digital displays, evening TV PC use.) and noise pollution and will have insufficient melatonin secretion through the night.
We don't generally offer those with sleep disturbance Time Release Melatonin supplements on prescription and more than most UK doctors correct Vitamin D deficiency with the natural form of vitamin d 3 in effective amounts that enable vitamin d storage in cells.
Vitamin d Parkinson's
There is a huge difference between treating a condition once it's established and intervening when an avalanche of catastrophic proportions in the brain is under way, and PREVENTING that cascade of disasters getting under way. We must all pay more attention to enhancing the natural protective mechanisms the body/brain has and fundamental to this is ensuring vitamin d status is high during the day and melatonin is high through the night.
