Reading that it seems to suggest two things:

  • Smoking appears to benefit people with Parkinson’s;
  • Nicotine may be a useful compound for treating Parkinson’s.

I didn’t see anything that suggested that smoking would be a treatment for Parkinson’s. Rather it seemed that it was an attempt to find why smoking seemed to be a benefit to folks with Parkinson’s.

I’m sure that this would be reported by the popular press as smoking provides benefits for Parkinson’s patients (which would not be wrong). And I’ve no doubt the tobacco companies would spin it this way. But I did not see this a a paper in support of smoking.

Thanks, this is a fun rabbit hole …
