Can anyone explain why pd gets worse and is chronic?
If pd is caused by alpha synuclein protein clumps in the brain why do they continue to form no matter what people do such as exercising, taking anti-oxidents, eating well, etc. ?
There is a lot mentioned in pd literature about slowing the progress of pd? Is this possible? If it is then why can't it be stopped? Doesn't make sense that you can slow something (a positive impact) but can't stop it from going worse?
Nicotine, for example, is thought to be neuroprotective, one assumes that if this is correct, can it actually stop pd from going worse?
Also a high fat diet is thought to be good for the brain. I am going for a fry-up and a smoke.
