The Connection Between Paraquat© and Parkinson’s
Due to the resistance weeds have built up to other herbicide products, Paraquat® has fast become one of the most commonly used herbicide formulas in the United States.
In response to evidence pointing to the dangers of Paraquat®, the European Union has outright banned it entirely while the EPA now requires thorough training for those using this harmful chemical.
For those farmers who think they may have developed Parkinson’s, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Loss of smell
- Trouble sleeping
- Trouble moving
- Trouble walking
- Masked face
- Dizziness, fainting
- Stooping, hunching over
Many of the giant chemical companies that produce Paraquat® and other herbicides containing Paraquat® simply elected not to warn farmers or their families about the dangers of exposure before these victims developed Parkinsons.
Paraquat© Updates in the NewsReports and studies show the possibility of farmers developing Parkinson’s from Paraquat® that manufacturers of the popular herbicide never warn the public about.
A great deal of research using Paraquat® and mice has yielded some eye-opening new evidence that Paraquat® can be absolutely hazardous to farmers and their families.
According to Parkinson’s News Today, “Paraquat has been linked to a higher Parkinson’s risk by its association with that disorder among agricultural workers exposed to this pesticide, and through studies showing that it can kill dopamine-producing neurons in mice.”1
And what’s more, according to a U.S. News & World Reports article, the rate of Parkinson’s disease continues to rise–from 2.5 million people in 1990 to 6.1 million people by 2016.
American Scientist magazine quotes the following statistics:
- A 2004 study showed the rates of Parkinson’s are two to four time higher in the rural areas than in other parts of the state
- A 1998 study revealed the risk of developing the disease was 170 times greater for agricultural workers than non-agricultural
- According to a 2017 study, rural areas of France have higher rates of Parkinson’s than urban areas2
We believe that the farmer victims who develop Parkinson’s after exposure to Paraquat® and their families should be able to face the manufacturer and get the compensation they deserve for the lifetime of care that they’ll need.
