A new studyin the journal BMC Neurology shows the connection between long-term exposure to pesticides and Parkinson’s disease. The study, which looked at more than 300 Parkinson’s patients, found that people with Parkinson’s were more than twice as likely to report long-term exposure to pesticides than other family members. This isn’t the first study finding a link between environmental factors and the disease.
Many doctors, reports the Daily Green, have said that Parkinson’s is likely a result of interactions between genes and environmental triggers. The Post also has a story today that talks about genes and environmental factors working together in cases of schizophrenia.
This research strengthens science linking external factors like toxic substances with neurological disease.
