PRINTABLE OR WHITE BACKGROUND VERSION OF THIS ARTICLE


Tobacco smoking is consistently associated with a reduced likelihood of
Parkinson’s Disease in men and women. So passive smokers were assessed to
see whether they were affected in the same way.





Exposure
to passive smoke in social settings was positively associated with
Parkinson’s Disease, increasing the likelihood of developing Parkinson’s
Disease by 62%. Neither the increasing years of passive smoke exposure, nor
the smokiness of the setting affected the likelihood of Parkinson’s Disease.


However, household exposure during adulthood was associated with a reduced risk of
Parkinson’s Disease down to 59% of what would be expected. Household exposure during childhood was not associated with any alteration in
the risk of Parkinson’s Disease. Workplace exposure was also not associated
with the risk of Parkinson’s Disease. Among lifelong non-smokers, passive
smoke exposure combined across all settings and accumulated over a lifetime
was only marginally associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s
Disease.
