Berries May Reduce Risk of Parkinson's Disease

Written by Tiffany Wallace | Healthy-Mag.com

Eating berries and other fruits may reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease.

According to a new study, men who ate the most foods rich in antioxidants, more specifically a sub-group of antioxidants known as flavonoids, were 35% less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease over those who ate the least.

49,281 men participated in the study and were followed for 20-22 years. The participants filled out questionnaires about the foods they ate. The foods rich in flavonoids included berries, citrus fruits and apples.

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. Its symptoms include shaking and slowness of movement, as well as dementia. Its cause is unknown.
