Ibuprofen cuts risk of Parkinson’s disease

New research suggests people who take the commonly used painkiller ‘ibuprofen’ on a regular basis may have a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.
In a study of over 135,000 men and women US researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that those who took ibuprofen two or three times a week reduced their risk of Parkinson’s disease by more than a third compared to those who regularly used aspirin, acetaminophen, or other NSAIDs over the long-term to help manage painful conditions such as arthritis.
