Previous studies reported that dairy product consumption was significantly associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's Disease in men, but not in women. As it was suggested that higher consumption of dairy products could increase the risk of Parkinson's Disease, some people with Parkinson's Disease have been cutting down their dairy product consumption, and altering their vitamin D intake. However, when researchers re-examined the
relationship between the consumption of dairy products, calcium, vitamin D and the risk of Parkinson's Disease, they found nothing to support previous claims.  No relationship was observed between the intake of milk, yogurt, cheese, or ice cream and the risk of Parkinson's Disease. There were no measurable association between the consumption of calcium or vitamin D and Parkinson's Disease either. Previous researchers did not come up with a theory to explain any possible relationship, and neither calcium nor vitamin D are involved in the formation of dopamine, the substance whose deficiency causes Parkinson's Disease. For more current news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
