Over 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s Disease, with 60,000 Americans diagnosed per year. While the exact cause of Parkinson’s Disease is unknown, most experts agree that the conditions are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. There is no known standard treatment for Parkinson’s. Treatment for each person is based on his or her symptoms.
