Should we avoid dairy products to reduce the risk of Parkinson's?
According to recent studies Consumption of more than 1.3 ounces of milk per day is associated with an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. According to Swedish studies, dietary intake of yogurts or soured milk does not pose a risk. Frequent consumption of dairy products appears to be associated with a modestly increased risk of PD in women and men. Dairy products are widely consumed and thus could constitute an important modifiable risk factor for this disease. Should we avoid dairy products to reduce the risk of Parkinson's?
@oojam Looking at a group of studies, the researchers found that total dairy intake was associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's disease. A component present in dairy products might negatively impact the oxidation levels in your brain, making symptoms more persistent. This effect was shown to be stronger in men than in women and not seen in those supplementing with calcium. The conclusion based on these studies was that frequent consumption of dairy products was associated with a modestly increased risk of Parkinson's disease. Thanks!
