If you're a middle-aged man, drinking just a glass of milk a day could raise your risk of Parkinson's disease, according to new research. "The latest study focused on 7,504 men aged 45 to 68, who were enrolled in a heart study in Hawaii. During the course of the 30-year study, 128 developed Parkinson's. The researchers found those men who consumed more than 16oz (454g) of milk a day were 2.3 times more likely to develop Parkinson's than those who drank no milk at all."

(This is, of course, not news to those of us who have been paying attention, but it is a stronger and more definite correlation than ever.)
