Abstract Determine whether military employment is associated with the risk of developing Parkinson s disease (PD). Scope: Two large population-based case- control studies of PD that were carried out in a health maintenance organization. Major findings: When compared to the men who had never served in the military, men that served in the military during peacetime but never during a conflict were not at increased risk of PD. However, the risk of PD was significantly increased among men who were deployed during one or more wars (adjusted OR= 1.8, 95% CI 1.2-2.8).
