More than 10 million people worldwide have Parkinson’s, a neurological disorder affecting the body’s central nervous system.
There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease. While it is still unclear exactly what causes the condition, the general consensus among researchers is that it occurs through genetic and environmental factors.
Between 10% and 15% of all Parkinson’s cases are caused by genetic factors.
A new study from the National Neuroscience Institute in Singapore says that drinking tea and coffee containing caffeine can significantly reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease in Asian individuals who are genetically at higher risk.
