I came across an article in yesterday’s Irish Times Health Supplement.
It’s by Dr Muiris Houston.
According to a study published this week in the US medical journal Archives of Neurology, tobacco smoking is associated with a reduced risk of developing Parkinson’s Disease.
One extract says
“And other tobacco products also appeared to be protective with men who smoke pipes or cigars having a 54 per cent lower risk of developing Parkinson’s Disease.”
