Cigarettes UK smokers are less likely to become a victim of Parkinson's disease, this conclusion made the scientists after studying data from surveys. The relationship between nicotine and trembling paralysis, explained the head of the neurological department of the Institute. Were revealed three factors that can reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease: smoking, coffee and gout. However, if a person already has Parkinson's disease, they will don't play any role.
The association between smoking cigarettes and decreased risk of developing Parkinson's disease has long been known to scientists. At the same time, many experts believe that Parkinson's disease is genetically caused and the absence of addiction to smoking in patients with Parkinson's may be due to the same genetic characteristics.
The scientists found that cigarette smokers among patients with Parkinson's disease was 40% less than among healthy participants, and smokers with experience, were met among them 50% less. Among the study participants were also 40% less coffee drinkers who consumed more than three cups of this beverage a day.
Long-term observations have shown that patients with Parkinson's disease are more non-smokers that smokers (almost twice) than smokers. Presumably, the nicotine inhibits an enzyme that affects the development of this disease. On its basis (not on nicotine) were made a drug that slows the progression of trembling paralysis.
The experts used a various means containing nicotine to treat patients with this disease and noticed a slight improvement in younger patients, only upon administration of nicotine in a pure form. For example, nicotine containing patches showed an ambiguous effect because of small doses of nicotine.
However, some people with Parkinson's disease themselves refuse from smoking. The fact that one of the signs of this disease is a loss of sensation: taste, smell. It turns away patients from smoking, because they did not get the pleasure from smoking cigarettes as before.
Of course, to recommend to all people smoke cigarettes because in future they may be will have a chance to not to suffer from Parkinson's disease, would be foolish. The evidence base of smoking effect is too weak and is more likely to get respiratory disease. Don't start smoking if you have already this disease: the nicotine content in cigarettes is too little for the remedial action.
