For the study, a team of researchers analyzed 11 years of data for about 3,000 independently living older men. The current study based on the study that was a part of the larger population-based Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study which began in 2000.

Senior author Kristine Yaffe, MD, the Roy and Marie Scola Endowed Chair and vice-chair of the Department of Psychiatry at UCSF, a professor of psychiatry, neurology, and epidemiology and biostatistics, and a member of the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, says: “The strength of the circadian rhythm activity seems to have a really important effect on health and disease, particularly in aging. In this latest study, we found that even small changes in circadian rhythm in older men were associated with a greater likelihood of getting Parkinson's down the line.”
