Dairy Products Linked to Parkinson’s Disease

June 25, 2007

A new study from the American Journal of Epidemiology shows that the consumption of dairy products is linked to an increased risk for Parkinson’s disease. Researchers investigated the association between dairy products and risk among 388 men and women diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease participating in the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study II. Results showed that as dairy product consumption increased, risk for Parkinson’s also increased. Specifically, those who consumed the most dairy milk had a 70 percent greater risk for the disease.
