Parkinson’s milk question?

A new study from the American Journal of Epidemiology links dairy products to Parkinson’s disease. Researchers looked at the diets of over 130,000 people (including 388 with Parkinson’s disease) from the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study II. They found that those who consumed the most cow’s milk had a massive 70 per cent higher risk for the disease.
