Eating Berries may lower risk of Parkinson's disease!

A new data shows that both men & women who eat berries on a regular basis 've a lower chance of developing Parkinson’s disease! According to the study from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, the high flavonoid content in berries, apples & oranges can help ward off the disease.
  
"This is the first study in humans to examine the association between flavonoids & risk of developing Parkinson's disease," said study author Dr. Xiang Gao, PhD, with the Harvard School of Public Health. "Our findings suggest that flavonoids, specifically a group called anthocyanins, may 've neuroprotective effects. If confirmed, flavonoids may be a natural & healthy way to reduce your risk of developing Parkinson's disease."

Researchers studied 49,281 men & 80,336 women o'er the course of 22 years & their intake of flavonoids, & analyzed their risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. The results showed that those who consumed the most flavonoids were 40% less likely to develop Parkinson’s. The study will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting in April.
