Parkinson's is a degenerative motor system disorder that causes co-ordination problems and tremors. The cause of the disease is not known, although it was previously thought that genetics and environmental factors played a major role in developing the disease.
Gathered medical records of people who developed Parkinson’s disease from 1976 to 1995 indicate that people who spent nine or more years studying are at more risk of developing this disease. The records showed that the people affected with Parkinson’s disease were not manual and factory but educated workers who spent most of their life doing sedentary work.
However, it is not believed that long periods of education and studying led to this condition but rather that early stages of Parkinson’s increased a studying desire. People who were the most affected were physicians and manual workers the least.
It is almost certain that education and occupation are only indirect indicators of factors that may cause this brain degeneration. These indicators should be used to find the factors that connect these people and represent the real risk for developing Parkinson’s. Lack of exercise is already one of the suspects.
