We know that environmental toxins can lead to higher rates of chronic disease. According to today’s guest, some of these same toxins, many of which are still highly prevalent today, can be direct contributors to your likelihood of getting Parkinson’s disease and possibly other brain disorders. If you are curious about prevention and limiting your exposure to toxins, this episode is for you.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with neurologist Dr. Ray Dorsey to discuss the root causes of Parkinson’s disease and how environmental toxins, like trichloroethylene (TCE), radically increase our likelihood of developing it.
Dr. Dorsey shares the decades of research behind why Parkinson’s is on the rise, how toxins can impact our mitochondria and the role of misfolded proteins in developing this disease. He also shares practical steps we can take to limit our exposure, especially at an early age, and reduce our risk of developing this disease through lifestyle and dietary interventions.
Dr. Ray Dorsey is a neurologist and researcher known for his groundbreaking work in the field of Parkinson’s disease. After completing his undergraduate studies at Stanford University, Dr. Dorsey earned his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He then pursued further training in neurology, completing his residency at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a fellowship in movement disorders at Columbia University.
In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Dorsey has significantly contributed to Parkinson’s disease research. His work on the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) and other research projects has advanced the field’s knowledge and treatment options. Dr. Dorsey also co-authored the groundbreaking book titled “Ending Parkinson’s Disease: A Prescription for Action.” The book delves into the current state of Parkinson’s disease, highlighting the limitations of existing treatments and emphasizing the need for a more comprehensive, patient-centered approach.
