Is there any on-going research as to why people who smoke are less likely to develop PD? I know that cigarette smoking involves the inhalation of a vast number of chemicals. Presumably one or a combination of a number of these has this dampening effect on PD (I know they have other negative health effects). Also how bib a factor on PD is smoking (e.g. a 25% reduction for 10 cigarettes a day smoker) and does smoking retard the progress, as opposed to the initiation, of PD?
