Parkinson's disease protection may begin in the gut

The gut may play a key role in preventing the onset of Parkinson's disease. Biologists found that in roundworms, an immune response from intestinal cells sparks a series of chemical signals that ultimately preserves neurons whose death is associated with Parkinson's.
