I'm now officially incensed, put out, torqued off, and furthermore irate. Yes, Parkinson's Disease has finally gone too far. Sure it can ruin your health, your finances, even your handwriting. But many a disease can do the same.
Parkinson's Disease appears to be persecuting a blameless, and frankly, lovable minority. Heads up carrot tops, according to this item posted over at Viartis, (Thanks to Katya for steering me there) we redheads are more prone to PD than those with black, brown, or blond locks
Here's the essence:
"Over 100,000 people were assessed according to the natural colour of their hair when they were young adults. People with black hair were found to be least prone to Parkinson's Disease. People with brown hair were 40% more likely to develop Parkinson's Disease. People with blonde hair were found to be around 60% more likely to develop Parkinson's Disease. Worst at risk were people with red hair, for whom the risk of Parkinson's Disease is nearly doubled."
This freakin' disease is profiling us! My fellow flame pates, it's time to unleash our legendary tempers against this vile condition! We will not be dissed by a disorder. Our time is now! Our path is clear! Redheads of the world, unite, we have nothing to lose but our brains!
