Parkinson's Disease


Parkinson’s disease is now the 14th leading killer in the US. The following may be associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s: pesticides, industrial carcinogens (which build up in animal fat), blue green algae supplements, spirulina, and high iron intake. Nitrites, found in cured meats, also appear to be linked with Parkinson’s.

On the bright side, filtered coffee may protect against Parkinson’s. Many modern drugs, including those used to treat Parkinson’s, are derived from plants.

Dr. Greger covers Parkinson’s disease in his full-length presentation, Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death, where he explores the role diet may play in preventing, treating, and even reversing our top 15 killers.
