New Study: Skiers 30% Less Likely To Develop Parkinson’s Disease


Good news: long-distance skiers are significantly less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than matched non-skiers, says new complex study .

Scientists in Sweden analyzed medical records of nearly 200,000 long-distance skiers who took part in the Vasaloppet cross-country ski race. They established that a physically active lifestyle is associated with close to a 30% reduced risk for PD, which might be explained by a motor reserve among the physically active.
