Über dieses im März 2020 in englischer Sprache erschienene Buch:

„PARKINSON’S DISEASE“ ist die am schnellsten wachsende neurologische Erkrankung der Welt. In den letzten 25 Jahren ist die Zahl der Erkrankten von 3 Millionen auf über 6 Millionen angestiegen. Bis 2040 wird sie sich wahrscheinlich noch einmal verdoppeln. Es gelingt uns bislang nicht, diesen Ansturm zu stoppen.

In diesem “must-read”-Leitfaden (Lonnie Ali) bieten vier führende Ärzte und Fürsprecher einen mutigen Aktionsplan zur Prävention, Therapie und Behandlung der Parkinson-Krankheit an – eine der großen gesundheitlichen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit.

Schädliche Pestizide und andere giftige Chemikalien, die zur Parkinson-Erkrankung beitragen, nehmen weiter zu, viele Menschen bleiben undiagnostiziert und unbehandelt, die Forschungsfinanzierung stagniert, und die wirksamste Behandlung ist inzwischen ein halbes Jahrhundert alt.

Die Autoren widmen ihre Einnahmen den Bemühungen, die Parkinson-Krankheit zu beenden.
