Another study suggests that consuming alcohol may reduce the risk of Parkinson's Disease.

The research began with 13,977 residents of a southern California community who were studied from 1981 to 1998. As with other studies done by others, the researcher found alcohol consumption inversely associated with risk of Parkinson's Disease. In other words, abstaining from alcohol increases the risk of developing the disease.
