TIME: Milk Consumption Linked to Parkinson’s Disease

A new article in Time magazine details yet another reason to ditch dairy: “Studies have found a connection between the consumption of dairy products and a higher risk of developing Parkinson disease, the neurodegenerative disorder that affects motor neurons in the brain.

Scientists from Shiga University of Medical Science in Japan found that the brains of men who drank two glasses of milk each day showed signs of compromised nerve function while the brains of men who drank little or no milk did not.

Countless studies have shown dairy products to be detrimental to human health.

Just last year, a study highlighted by The Telegraph found a link between milk consumption and lowered life expectancy. In fact, those who consumed three glasses of milk or more each day were twice as likely to die early than those who drank less or no milk.
