Please don`t get your hopes up just yet.  My OH has been taking folic acid for 18 months and his difficulties are still increasing.

Hello everyone

We saw the news about folic acid on ITV too and have posted a story on the website explaining what the team have found and what it could mean for people with Parkinson's.
