When first diagnosed with PD (abt. 13 yrs) and, no family history, I read almost everything I could get my hands on about it. Since much of the material read said it possibly was caused during my generation's (I am 67) use of pesticides by our country.....which resulted in slowly filtering in our meats, dairy and processed foods. I decided to follow a Vegan diet (not easy mind you...especially if you enjoy meat & dairy & incorporated a lot of processed food)! Well, in my case, I have found it to be extremely beneficial and do notice a big difference when I "fall off the wagon". Anyone else????
p.s. and to try and stay as active as what is good for you.
