Caffeine: The New Treatment For Parkinson's?

Caffeine: The New Treatment For Parkinson's? | Agriculture In The U.S. | Scoop.it
A new study suggests that caffeine can help control the tremors, movement difficulties, and motor dysfunctions that are typical of Parkinson's sufferers.

We already know that drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages can lessen a person’s overall risk for getting Parkinson’s disease, but what if a person already suffers from it?


A new study from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre in Canada, published in Neurology, suggests that caffeine can help control the tremors, movement difficulties, and motor dysfunctions that are typical of Parkinson’s sufferers. Medical News Today reports:


“This is one of the first studies to show the benefits of caffeine on motor impairment in people who have Parkinson’s disease,” stated Dr. Ronald Postuma, lead author of the study, a researcher in neurosciences at the RI MUHC, and Professor of Medicine in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. “Research has already shown that people who drink coffee have a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, but until now no study had looked at the immediate clinical implications of this finding.”


The study involved 61 people with Parkinson’s disease. The experimental group received a 100 mg dose of caffeine two times a day for the first three weeks, and then had their dosage upped to two 200 mg pills a day for another three weeks. The control group followed the same dosage schedule, but with placebo pills.

Dr. Postuma’s results showed that “the people who received caffeine supplements experienced an improvement in their motor symptoms (a five-point improvement on the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale, a rating scale used to measure the severity of the disease) over those who received the placebo.”


While a larger-scale study is needed, this new data could indicate a new, semi-natural treatment option for the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, offering relief to millions of people around the world.

John Deere History - About John Deere | John Deere MachineFinder

John Deere History - About John Deere | John Deere MachineFinder | Agriculture In The U.S. | Scoop.it
John Deere's innovative thinking and dedication to quality sculpted a company and product that was built to last for years to come.
SandraEllis's insight:

Over the years, “John Deere” has become a household name for most Americans. Whether it’s written across a hat or on a lawn mower, tractor, or children’s toy, we all recognize that familiar green and yellow. The history of John Deere has had a big impact on the world’s approach to plowing, harvesting, mowing, lumbering, and simplegardening.

 

Though some of us may boast an expert recognition and knowledge of theJohn Deere products and brand, what do we really know about the man who started it all?

 

Our history of John Deere begins when he is a young man living in his birth state of Vermont. John Deere worked as a blacksmith’s apprentice and eventually began his own blacksmith trade. For 12 years, John Deere traveled to various cities in Vermont to offer his blacksmith services but when business slowed in 1837, the 33 year-old Deere headed west to Illinois. Once he had established his blacksmith services in IL, Deere began noticing a recurring trend in the wood and cast-iron plows he was repairing: He found that this plow design was meant for the soft, sandy soil of the East and was not conducive to the thick, heavy prairie soil.
