Turns out researchers have found out that having GOUT might be neuroprotective (along with smoking, caffeine and beer.) Had it! STILL get it! (have drunk GALLONS of coffee and smoked in the past, never did develop a taste for beer though, reminded me of carbonated pee!)
So I probably would have WORSE symptoms of Parkinson’s WITHOUT the gout!
