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.
