Ibuprofen may reduce risk of getting Parkinson's disease

Regular use of the common over-the-counter pain reliever ibuprofen may cut the risk of developing Parkinson's disease, a new study suggests.

The study is one of the largest to investigate the possible benefits of ibuprofen on Parkinson's, a brain disorder that causes tremors and movement problems and affects mostly elderly people. Scientists found that people who take ibuprofen regularly have a 38% lower risk of developing the condition, compared with those who don't use it. Other pain relievers, such as aspirin and acetaminophen, did not show the same effect, researchers said.

Just yesterday I posted a topic about ibuprofen and other analgesics causing ED. Now today I am told I should take it to prevent Parkinson's Disease. Decisions, decisions, I'll take the ED over the Parkinson's.

I just have a feeling I am going to have more replies to the ED topic than this one. I don't think I could take anyone's word about drugs. None are safe but maybe living is made better through chemistry.
