New Research on the Effects of Smoking and Coffee on Parkinson's Disease
Washington -A new study seems to portray benefits of smoking and coffee as a preventive measure against Parkinson's disease.

The study, published in the current issue of Archives of Neurology, followed 356 Parkinson's patients. The victims did not smoke or consume coffee as against their family members who smoked, consumed caffeine and enjoyed Parkinson free life. This seemed to leave a clue about the protective blessing coffee and smoking on Parkinson's.

Earlier studies have indicated the same protective cover offered by smoking and caffeine against Parkinson's. In the first ever controlled study conducted, William K. Scott, one of the study authors suggested, "What this study tells us is there is something about cigarette smoking and consuming caffeine that alters the biology underpinning of Parkinson's disease."

This research is still in a nascent stage. Therefore the research findings are not to be interpreted as a blanket prescription to prevent Parkinson's disease.

I beg to differ with this study. My mother lives with parkinsons decease now for 12 years. She is 58 year of age and she has drank coffee since she was young along with smoked since she was the age of 20 or so. Do not see how this would help provent parkinsons?
