Complete abstract

The current literature provides little data concerning the causes of death in Parkinson's Disease. Death certificate documentation is inadequate in one third of certificates, making research difficult. Less than two thirds of people with Parkinson's Disease actually had Parkinson's Disease recorded on their death certificates. When thoroughly assessed it was found that the most common cause of death in people with Parkinson's Disease was Pneumonia, which was the cause of death in 45% of people. For more information concerning Pneumonia. However, people with Parkinson's Disease were actually less likely to die of Cancer or Heart Disease than the rest of the population. For more current news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
