Drinking Milk Is Linked to Parkinson’s Disease: Study | Time.com

Abbott and his team studied 449 brains and recorded the density of neurons in specific areas of the brain known to be affected by Parkinson's. They found that men who reported drinking more than two glasses of milk a day (16 oz) showed the thinnest nerve networks in these areas, suggesting compromised function of these nerves, compared to men who drank little or no milk. The milk drinkers also had residues of specific organochlorines called heptachlor epoxide.

Interestingly, by measuring when cells in motor nerve regions died, they also learned that the accumulation of heptachlor epoxide occurred before the cells were damaged, strongly hinting that the chemical was responsible for triggering the changes associated with Parkinson's.
