    ''. Smoking reduces the risk for anosmia in Parkinson's disease patients. The cause of olfactory dysfunction in these patients is impaired cholinergic transmission, and the same mechanism may be implicated in COVID-19-induced anosmia''
    So smoke is dope , you will not get Parkinsons, wharra wharra long story short , or covid 19 . No hassles , moan less , smoke more and in a week's time no cv-19.

    So smoking helps Parkinson's patients to not lose their sense of smell and therefore taste?? Interesting.

    Think it’s more geared to the nicotine side associated with, the smoking analogy is used as this is still the widest means of administration, of course vaping will do a much better job imho and solve or reduce the associated risks.

    I've also heard that nicotine helps to reduce the shaking which Parkinson's causes. Somewhere along the line I heard of a guy with Parkinson's who was advised by his doctor to start smoking. However, he's never smoked before and didn't like it. He then started vaping. Unfortunately I don't know where I heard/read this and I don't know if it's true.
