Parkinson’s disease – how to reduce your risk
There is no known cure for Parkinson’s but certain lifestyle decisions have been shown to reduce your risk.
According to the Parkinson’s Foundation (PF), claims that drinking coffee reduces your risk has a solid scientific backing.
Furthermore, several prospective studies that followed tens of thousands of people for many years have shown a correlation between exercise earlier in life and a reduced chance of developing Parkinson’s later on, reports Harvard Health.
Exercising in your 30s and 40s — decades before Parkinson’s typically occurs — may reduce the risk of getting Parkinson’s disease by about 30 percent, notes the Health Letter.
