(Comment: I don’t think it matters a bit to your substantia nigra whether or not you are a Christian or a Jew or a Muslim or a Hindu.  When 80 percent of the dopamine-producing cells are dead, you start showing symptoms.  How you handle it is a matter of your personal constitution.  I don’t think being a Christian makes one any more or less better equipped to handle Parkinson’s than being Jewish does or Muslim, or Buddhist.  We deal with things the way our life’s experience shows us how.)
