Further to Shasha's recent question on the effects of alcohol, I was wondering whether there has been any research into the possibility that alcohol could accelerate the progression of Parkinsons? A lot of people seem to find that they are not able to tolerate alcohol like they used to. I do not over indulge, but have not found any difference in my reaction to alcohol. We are all different, I know, and on different types of meds. Maybe it is the meds that cause different reactions. Who knows? I will continue to have the odd tipple until I am told differently.
