Apologies if posted elsewhere.

"Stem cells can be used to heal the damage in the brain caused by Parkinson's disease, according to scientists in Sweden.

They said their study on rats heralded a "huge breakthrough" towards developing effective treatments.

There is no cure for the disease, but medication and brain stimulation can alleviate symptoms.

Parkinson's UK said there were many questions still to be answered before human trials could proceed."

Very interesting and I remain optimistic, as we all should as it is a benefit in combating this "disease".

There are people out there working for us and I really believe a cure is not far off.

In the words of Colin Powell, "Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier."
