An Ibuprofen a day could keep Parkinson's disease away
New research shows people who regularly take ibuprofen may reduce their risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, according to a study.
The study found regular users of ibuprofen were 40 percent less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than people who didn’t take ibuprofen. Also, people who took higher amounts of ibuprofen were less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than people who took smaller amounts of the drug. The results were the same regardless of age, smoking and caffeine intake.
More research is needed as to how and why ibuprofen appears to reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease.
