“We believe this announcement couldn’t come at a better time for us as we are right in the middle of Parkinson’s Awareness Month,” said Mr. Strongo. Global WholeHealth Partners now has the means to identify and test for Parkinson’s disease using a Micro-Well Reader or Lateral Flow Test to measure the certain brain enzymes during the data collection process used in a positive diagnosis.

“I just read an article from TheGuardian.com that discussed how Parkinson’s disease is on the rise and researchers are pointing to a common chemical as the blame,” exclaimed Strongo. Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with PD each year.
Most cases of Parkinson’s disease are considered idiopathic – they lack a clear cause. Yet researchers increasingly believe that one factor is environmental exposure to trichloroethylene (TCE), a chemical compound used in industrial degreasing, dry-cleaning and household products such as some shoe polishes and carpet cleaners.

Dorsey, a neurologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center and author of Ending Parkinson’s Disease, believes a Parkinson’s epidemic is on the horizon. Parkinson’s is already the fastest-growing neurological disorder in the world; in the US, the number of people with Parkinson’s has increased 35% the last 10 years, says Dorsey, and “We think over the next 25 years it will double again.” Dr. Ray Dorsey says, “We’re on the tip of a very, very large iceberg.”
-Men are 1.5 times more likely to have Parkinson’s disease than women. -Incidence of Parkinson’s disease increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before age 50.
“Early detection for Parkinson’s disease is not only crucial for patients and their quality of life, but this data is also used by researchers to seek out commonalities, causes and hopefully cures,” commented Strongo. Source: Parkinsons.org When a large population of people have a disease like Parkinson’s disease (PD), it’s essential to have accurate numbers of how many people have the disease, where they live and why they have it. This information helps researchers, healthcare professionals and even legislators determine how many resources should be allocated to addressing and treating a disease.
