The presence of the Appendix blocks the development of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson's-inducing protein in the gut points to possible link between gastrointestinal tract and disease Research Shows Connection Between Parkinson's And Appendectomies

However, the search for the origins of Parkinson's still has not made it clear why the disease develops in some people but not others.

Scientists from the Van Andel Research Institute in MI examined data on 1.7 million people in Sweden and found that having an appendectomy is linked to a 19.3 percent reduced risk of developing Parkinson's in a general population.

It is the first time that scientists associate Parkinson to the instrument body, which appears to act as a "reservoir" for abnormal neuronal proteins (alpha-synuclein) associated with the onset and exacerbation of disease.

This might be why people who have their appendix removed early in life have a decreased risk of developing Parkinson's.

The exact cause of Parkinson's and an effective prevention/cure have not been found. Researchers promise to continue looking into the link between the appendix and the neurodegenerative disease. "We're not promoting appendectomy as a way to protect against Parkinson's disease". Scientists are working on determining its causes (there could be multiple) but it appears it could have both genetic and environmental components, according to the Mayo Clinic. The researchers analyzed medical cards of one million seven hundred thousand people.

Scientists have increasingly wondered whether there are Parkinson's disease triggers in the gut.

The contents of people's appendix have been examined and it has been discovered that it has the toxic protein called alpha synuclein - that is found in the brains of Parkinson's patients.

The study found that of the 1,144,745 Swedes who did not have appendectomies, 1,608 had Parkinson's, but of the 551,003 who had, only 644 had Parkinson's.

Parkinson's disease may originate deep in the digestive system, according to a new study by USA scientists. It is more common among those living in rural areas. If these people have observed the perspective of the development of Parkinson's, its appearance again was delayed by nearly three and a half years.

The same abnormally folded proteins are also found in people that are not diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease.
