Folic Acid

Did anyone see the news report on tv this evening about scientist at Leicester had discovered giving fruit flies folic acid actually stopped Parkinsons disease developing


Very interesting



Hi shelley65

No I missed it but my daughter rang to tell me about it. Thanks for putting the website up i'll have a look at it




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.
