Shaking, tremors, uncontrollable movements. These are some symptoms of the disease known as Parkinson. There are no known cure, and no known causes. It’s a disease that has plagued more than 10 million people around the world and men are likely to suffer from this disease more than women. The treatment cost for this disease is US$25 billion in the US alone (1 million sufferers). Extrapolating this means that the cost per year is estimated to be over US$100 billion! Unfortunately, millions of sufferers are left to deal with the effects of this disease, living a life of discomfort and discrimination.
