According to Stefan-M Pulst, co-author of the study, Neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson's disease may cause common disease. This disease may further lead to the some cancers.

He has said that after seeing the Utah Population Database, they were successful in finding the association of PD with different types of cancer. They have done this by studying cancer risk in individuals with PD, with their close and distant relatives.
