Parkinson’s Disease Is Progressive, Degenerative, Irreversible

P arkinson’s Disease is a progressive, degenerative, irreversible condition for which there is currently no cure. Parkinson's Disease occurs due to damage and loss of brain cells.

The symptoms for Parkinson's begin slowly, but get progressively worse. These include tremors (shaking), slow movement, rigidity (stiffness), anxiety, dementia, memory loss and more. Parkinsons Disease UK has more details.

Remember, Parkinson's is progressive, degenerative and irreversible.

Browsing the web I came across:
Marilyn Deaton, 60, of New York dined almost exclusively on fat for a month and saw some improvement in her Parkinson's symptoms. The results, included modest improvements in balance, tremors and mood.
The lady goes on a diet, loses 26lbs in weight and improves her Parkinson's Disease. What is this wonder diet?

Background

Refined sugars (e.g., sucrose, fructose) were absent in the diet of most people until very recently in human history. Today overconsumption of diets rich in sugars contributes together with other factors to drive the current obesity epidemic. Overconsumption of sugar-dense foods or beverages is initially motivated by the pleasure of sweet taste and is often compared to drug addiction. Though there are many biological commonalities between sweetened diets and drugs of abuse, the addictive potential of the former relative to the latter is currently unknown.
