    Yes, that’s an interesting one but as the article says they need to find out which compenents of milk lead to these findings.

    It’s also interesting that the relationship doesn’t hold up for women.

    It’s safe to drink milk again!

    Evidence that pesticides can cause Parkinson’s disease is stronger than it has ever been after a meeting of experts who have put together links in animals and people, scientists say.

    One study shows that farm workers who used the common weedkiller paraquat had two to three times the normal risk of Parkinson’s, a degenerative brain disease that eventually paralyzes patients. Reuters

    LUCKY! i scoff around a litre a day.

    goddam pesticides/herbicides. surely there would be a similar link in fruit/veg? or are these foods more able to be ‘cleaned’ – read rinsed – before consumption.

    I would imagine processed foods like milk (but not milk as Dr J has pointed out) may have levels of these substances you can’t avoid.

    thoughts?
