Good for a diet, but watch out! Most Drinking Low-Fat Milk Can Trigger Parkinson's
InfoHealthyLife.com - Low-fat milk is often used as a healthier alternative to full cream milk for dieters. But maybe you should read this article first before downing your glass of milk. Low-fat labels on your milk box can be a master weapon for your health in the long run. Because, according to a new study, drinking too much low-fat milk can increase your risk of Parkinson's disease. How come? Read more here.
Overview of Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease is a progressive (ongoing) nervous system disorder, which in turn affects the person's moving ability. Generally, Parkinson's attacks older people over 50 years. One in 100 parents aged 65 years and over are Parkinson's sufferers. Research shows that men are more at risk of contracting Parkinson's than women.

The disease starts with a small tremor on the part of the hand or usually the muscles feel stiff. This series of symptoms will continue to deteriorate over time in the annual period. In everyday life, people with Parkinson's will find it difficult to move and talk. The initial symptoms that are seen from the outside are slowing movement, slurred speech, and often losing balance.

Parkinson's attacks 4 million of the world's population every year. It has even been estimated that by 2030, Parkinson's sufferers globally can reach 6.17 million people. In Indonesia alone, the number of Parkinson's sufferers in Indonesia reaches 400,000 people per 2015 based on data from the Association of Neurologists in Indonesia, reported from BeritaSatu. This number can continue to increase along with the increasing number of elderly populations in the country.
There are no specific tests or medical tests to diagnose Parkinson's, so the case is sometimes unexpected.

Why can low-fat milk trigger Parkinson's disease?

According to a study published in the Medical Journal of the American Academy of Neurology, people who consumed at least three servings of low-fat milk every day had a 34 percent greater risk of developing Parkinson's disease compared to people who average only one serving low-fat milk every day. This study collected and analyzed data on dietary patterns and the development of health conditions from 129,346 participants for 25 years. The researchers also assessed the frequency and types of processed milk products consumed by participants. During that time, 1,036 people showed symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Based on these findings, researchers concluded that the intake of low-fat dairy products may be associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's disease. However, they stated that their research was purely observational so that they could not explain the cause and effect of this presumption. More in-depth research is needed to ascertain what is the cause of this connection.

Low-fat milk is not necessarily healthier

Although it is not yet known what is the reason behind the increased risk of Parkinson's disease from drinking mostly low-fat milk, this alternative milk diet is not necessarily healthier than ordinary milk. Because the original animal fat content in low-fat milk will be replaced by producers with fats from plants, which are basically types of unsaturated fats.

The milk processing process will then cause hydrogenated vegetable fat. The hydrogenation process results in changes in vegetable fat in food into trans fat which is very dangerous if it enters the body. As is known, trans fat can increase cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Therefore, low-fat foods are not always low in fat.

No need to abstain from drinking low-fat milk

It's okay to consume low-fat milk for alternative full-cream milk as long as it's within reasonable limits. Doctor Kathleen Shannon, head of the University of Wisconsin neurology department, said that the results found by the above study regarding the risk of Parkinson's disease did not have an overall impact on the whole. "The increase in risk is only around 30 percent, and not a double increase," he said.

The same thing was said by James Beck, Ph.D., the head doctor of the scientific department of Parkinson's disease in America. Beck said that the increased risk is still quite small and not something that requires someone to stop drinking low-fat milk at all.

The head of research in Parkinson's disease in the UK, Claire Bale, argues that although the results of this study are surprising, individuals may not change their diet just because they were afraid to read the results of this study. "The benefits of calcium, vitamin D, and protein in milk remain greater than the potential danger or an increased risk for Parkinson's disease," he said.
It is true that everything that is excessive will not be good for yourself. So, limit the consumption of reasonable low-fat milk.
