Abstract: Parkinson’s Disease (PD) also known as Parkinson’s is the painful and dangerous disease that occurs when the nerve cells or neurons in the brain die or become enervated. The risk of Parkinson’s takes place due to environmental risk factors such as age, gender, head injury, area of residence, occupation, pesticide exposure, herbicide exposure, exposure to metals, solvents and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and genetic predisposition. The current research is to study the people of Tamil Nadu state with list of questionnaires to find them experiencing various symptoms in their routine life. In this article the study is carried out to identify environmental factors and their origins for Parkinsonism. The outcome of this paper is to discriminate healthy people from those with PD based on environmental risks and other factors that affects the ageing people.
