PARKINSON'S RISK FOR MEN WHO DRINK MILK Apr 8 2005


By Lorraine Fisher


MEN who drink more than a pint of milk a day could double their risk of getting Parkinson’s Disease.

Scientists found that even one glass daily increases the danger of developing the brain condition.

Tests show the risks are greatest among middle-aged men.

The latest study, published in the journal Neurology, backs up earlier findings linking dairy products with the disease.

US scientists at the University of Virginia tracked 7,500 men in a 30-year study.

The results showed the 128 men who developed Parkinson’s were likely to be milk drinkers. For those consuming more than a pint a day, the risk was double that of those who drank no milk.

But the scientists, who think calcium could be the cause, stress that even among heavy milk drinkers the risk of getting the disease is small. Around 120,000 Britons have Parkinson’s, which hits the nervous system.

The incurable condition causes trembling and leaves one in three victims senile. Pope John Paul II was a long-time sufferer.

The Parkinson’s Disease Society said: “Further work needs to be carried out into components in milk and dairy products.”

I drank enough milk for a few people when I was a kid. Lost my desire for it and figured it might not be bad. They say we put on all the calcium into our bones when we are young.
I wonder if cheese equals milk ?

possible....it's probably the calcium?

i rarely drink milk but eat a lot of cheese.

parkinson's is genetic isn't it? so perhaps if anyone else in your family has it this news would be worth considering.

my mom had parkinson's, and the only one in her family. I eat a little cheese when making food, and it would be a hardship to try not to, but then I smoke and that prevents parkinson's, so they might balance out.))

“Further work needs to be carried out into components in milk and dairy products.”

It would be useful to identify how many of these men drank milk from conventional dairies. Probably close to 100%.

"Further work" on effcts of milk (in this or other studies) could focus on conventional milk drinkers vs. RAW MILK drinkers.

(if enough subjects could be found)

I hate writing, LOL. I should just give it up and leave it to others!

How do we know how much is the effect of the processing of milk (homogenization/pasteurization/chemicalized feeding of cows) or something inherent in milk itself? We don't.

I hope that was better. :(
