Berries May Fight Off Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's Disease is a degenerative nerve disease caused by cell-death in the brain. The result is shaking, rigidity, slow movement and, ultimately, dementia. In recent years, the struggles of boxer Muhammad Ali and actor Michael J. Fox with the disease have brought it to greater public awareness.
There's no cure for Parkinson's, but there are treatments for the symptoms --primarily surgery and certain medications. Doctors still have a poor understanding of how to prevent the onset of Parkinson's, but amazingly, a new study reveals that berries of all kinds may help.
