Title

Relationship between physical activity and incidence of Parkinson's disease in the E3N cohort

Project Summary

We studied the relationship between physical activity and the incidence of Parkinson's disease (PD) among 96,665 women followed between 1990-2018, 1,163 of whom developed PD. The evolution of their physical activity was estimated from 6 questionnaires. The risk of PD decreased when physical activity increased, even long before the onset of the disease. These results argue in favor of prevention programs based on physical activity for people at risk of PD.
