10 Year Summary of MVP Study Diet Data: Relationship Between Food Intake and Parkinson Symptom Severity Over Time
With the support of generous donations by community members, we have been able to analyze the data obtained from the first 1700 individuals with idiopathic PD to enroll in the MVP Study.
After adjusting for age, gender, income, and years since diagnosis, these are the foods associated with faster and slower accumulation of symptoms.
This is not my opinion; I am simply describing the data.
This type of research, cross-sectional and observational, is unable to tell us WHY any of these foods might be related. And just because there is an association, it doesn't mean that A caused B.
Still, common sense suggestions are proposed as the potential relevance of these data are discussed.
