LONDON: Excessive use of certain commonly used antibiotics is linked to an increased risk of Parkinson”s disease, a progressive nervous system disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination, says a study.

This connection may be explained by their disruptive effects on the gut microbial ecosystem, said the study published in the journal Movement Disorders.

The strongest associations were found for broad-spectrum antibiotics and those that act against anaerobic bacteria and fungi.
