Encino Home Care: Pesticides & Parkinson’s Disease

dreamstime_6077590Got milk?  That’s not necessarily a good thing if you drank more than two cups of milk per day in the 1980s.  According to the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, a pesticide was found in milk during that period of time.  Researchers found that a group of participants who drank at least two cups a day had 40% less brain cells than the other participants who drank less.  The study does not show a causal link but an association between milk consumption and Parkinson’s Disease, a central nervous disease for which there is no known cure or cause.  A-1 Home Care in Encino offers round-the-clock care for seniors who cope with the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s on a daily basis.
