Fighting Parkinson’s Disease – Singing Away The Symptoms

I was very interested to hear about work being carried out in Iowa to help those living with Parkinson’s Disease. Researchers are testing if singing can help fight the disease and the results so far look promising.

Iowa State University researchers, who are studying patients in Ames, say that singing improves patients’ breathing. That, in turn, strengthens their muscles that help them swallow and speak.

Great work Iowa State University.
