Studies Have Linked Parkinson’s to Paraquat Exposure

It’s hard to believe that multiple studies have linked popular herbicide Paraquat to Parkinson’s, but the chemical continues to be sold and used in the U.S. In fact, since around 1962, Paraquat has been one of the most widely used herbicides in the world, often used to control weeds and clear fields before crops are planted.

FYI: Paraquat has also been sold under the trade names Gramoxone, Firestorm, Helmquat and Parazone.

According to a 2009 article by the American Journal of Epidemiology, any exposure to Paraquat within just 1,600 feet of a home increases the risk of Parkinson’s by 75 percent.

And in 2014, the Annual Review of Pharmacology and Toxicology published findings titled “Environmental Toxins and Parkinson’s Disease.” This review reported that people who applied Paraquat were two times more likely to develop Parkinson’s than the general population.

Given all of this, it’s no surprise that 32 countries have banned the use of Paraquat. It may surprise you that the U.S. has NOT banned the use of Paraquat, despite its known connection with Parkinson’s.

If you or a family member were exposed to Paraquat and later diagnosed with Parkinson’s or are exhibiting symptoms of Parkinson’s, contact us today to learn more about filing a potential lawsuit. There’s no out-of-pocket cost and filing a lawsuit can help protect others from being hurt by Paraquat.

Even More Medical Evidence That Links Paraquat to Parkinson’s

In 2011 the medical journal Environmental Health Perspectives published the results of study on Parkinson’s and pesticides, which noted that serious concerns about Paraquat.

The CDC Believes Paraquat is MORE Toxic Than Other Herbicides.

In 2018, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program (NTP) acknowledged that hundreds of studies had investigated the link between Paraquat exposure and Parkinson’s Disease. In response, the organization announced its protocol for a review of Paraquat exposure and Parkinson’s in an attempt to map evidence that associates the herbicide with Parkinson’s disease.
