Could eating fish stave off Parkinson’s disease?

According to the latest research, a chemical commonly found in fish might prevent Parkinson s disease. The team also unearth a unique mechanism that could help design better drugs to attack neurodegenerative diseases. A fish-heavy diet may help to prevent neurodegenerative conditions in later life. Over the decades, a serious amount of research has gone […]
