Named unexpected benefit of appendix removal

Doctors from different countries concluded that removing the appendix reduces the likelihood of a serious illness.

Despite the progress of medicine and science, a number of diseases are still almost impossible not only to prevent, but also to cure. 

Recently, scientists have found a relationship between the appendix and a dangerous degenerative disorder. 

Representatives of science from different countries concluded that the removal of the appendix reduces the likelihood of Parkinson's disease (a disease of the nervous system that gradually destroys neurons that produce one of the most important neurotransmitters, dopamine). 

For information, experts analyzed information on the incidence of the central nervous system among 1.6 million Europeans. 

The appendix (a process of a caecum) contains alpha synuclein in the structure. The active functioning of this protein can cause the appearance of the disease. 

It turned out that removing an appendix reduces the risk of developing Parkinson's disease by almost 20 percent. It was also recorded slowing the onset of the disease by 3.5 years. 

Especially the positive effect was seen in residents who live outside the city. This means that environmental factors also have a favorable outcome. In addition, it was noted that pesticides contribute to the appearance of neurological pathologies. 

Scientists plan to continue further research in this direction.

Only in the United States live 1 million people with Parkinson's disease. Every year, the government spends millions of dollars on fighting the disease, and the forecast, so far, is disappointing. 

The experiment made it possible to reduce the risk of a dangerous disease. After all, as you know, it is better to prevent its offensive, then to deal with the consequences.
