      Dont appear able to add comments post presentation date. Would be good if you could. Was an interesting talk. Feel that comparison of no. of symptoms rather than degree of symptom makes it flawed. Generally i see those doing better having just as many symptoms as those not doing as well. Just that those doing better are managing their symptoms better. For instance I have about 20 symptoms but I can still run 10K. Also link to canned food does not make sense to me having worked extensively in the canned food industry here in Australia. Most cans are coated preventing the can metal entering foods. It is more likely that they are cheap and hence more widely used by people and linked to PD by association rather than cause.

    Great talk, and this presentation answered a lot of questions I have had from previous talks. Thank you.

    So informative, brave and factual. The data does not lie yet the industries do and these industries protect their profit margins through continued multi million dollar advertising campaigns to maintain the status quo. Meanwhile, the general population is becoming sicker and more dependent upon the medical profession and pharmaceutical companies to take control of their health. Diet can turn back disease and slow disease – thank you for your information.

    really enjoyed your presentation and lively style. I’ve got a page of notes to thrust at my brother and will smack those cakes out of his hand the next time I see him (kidding… maybe). This was a quick flirt with many different food types but a really good grounding on where he could start to make improvements. He loves a cake and Italian food and I’ve been gently suggesting the Mediterranean diet but now i might be more direct. Luckily he’s been vegetarian all his life. I’ve taken down your website and will suggest he joins and shares. Many thanks. This was very informative. Thanks again, really enjoyed this.😀

    Thank you for a fascinating presentation Laurie. I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s and will be seeing a dietition in a couple of weeks. Others have asked if it is possible to obtain a copy of your presentation. I would be most interested to obtain a copy too for my dietition. Is it available? Of course I recognise that it is your IP which would need to be respected. Thank you, Andrew (Sydney, Australia)
