A study, published in the European Journal of Neurology, revealed that eating a Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruit, vegetables and fish can almost halve the risk of Parkinson’s disease.
According to the study, healthy eating habits decreased the risk of the brain disorder by up to 46%.
The findings support earlier studies suggesting that diet could have a key role to play in preventing this devastating disease.
Some research suggests Parkinson’s disease may be more likely to occur when cells in the body undergo a damaging process called oxidation.
This happens when harmful substances enter the body, usually through poor dit, and attack healthy cells.
Vegetables, fruit, and fish all contain high levels of antioxidants, which help to block this process.
