Michael J. Fox Speculates Whether Partying Could Have Caused Parkinson’s Disease

  • Michael J. Fox has been an advocate for Parkinson’s disease for over two decades following his diagnosis in 1991, when he was just 29 years old.
  • As the founder of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for the disease, Fox has helped doctors and researchers find a better understanding of how the disease progresses, and now he is revealing his own diagnosis could have come about because of something he did.
  • In a new interview, Fox was asked about a remark he made last November when receiving an honorary Oscar – Woody Harrelson had presented him with the award, and Fox said that the two of them had done “some damage” back in the ’80s.
