Smoking Linked to Lower Parkinson's Disease Risk

A new analysis of data from previous studies suggests that smokers are less likely to develop Parkinson's disease .

Several studies have suggested cigarette smoking appears to be associated with a reduced risk for developing Parkinson's disease and now an analysis by Beate Ritz, M.D., Ph.D., of the UCLA School of Public Health, Los Angeles, and colleagues has confirmed these suggestions.

As a part of their study the researchers pooled data from 11,809 individuals (2,816 individuals with Parkinson's disease and 8,993 controls of the same age and sex but without Parkinson's disease) involved in 11 studies conducted between 1960 and 2004.

They found that there is an inverse association between cigarette smoking and Parkinson's disease.

"Recent studies also suggested that Parkinson's disease risk is particularly low in active smokers with a long history of intense smoking; some even suggested dose-related risk reductions with increasing pack-years of smoking," the authors write.

"Our analyses confirmed prior reports of an inverse association between cigarette smoking and Parkinson's disease similar in size to those reported in a recent meta-analysis.

"We also showed that associations did not differ by sex or educational status. Although we found that current smokers and those who had continued to smoke to within five years of Parkinson's disease diagnosis exhibited the lowest risk, a decrease in risk (13 percent to 32 percent) was also observed in those who had quit smoking up to 25 years prior to Parkinson's disease diagnosis," the authors write

Other tobacco products also appeared to be protective - men who smoked pipes or cigars had a 54 percent lower risk. The number of chewing tobacco users was small, but there was a suggestion of reduced risk associated with this product.

The researchers found no association between smoking and Parkinson's disease risk
