Were you diagnosed with Parkinson's disease as a result of Paraquat exposure?
Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South is interviewing commercial farmers, agricultural workers, and other individuals who have used the commercial herbicide Paraquat.
Who is at risk?
A probable link between exposure to Paraquat (a commercial herbicide) and Parkinson's disease is an increasing concern.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has found a link with the use of Paraquat dichloride (an herbicide) to increased rates of Parkinson's disease in agricultural workers, farmers, and their neighbors with exposure to the weed-killing agent.
The NIH launched a study in 2011 of farmworkers exposed to the herbicide Paraquat and found they were diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at a rate 2.5 times higher than those not exposed to the agent.
Parkinson's disease advocates worldwide have asked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban the herbicide Paraquat due to increasing evidence of its risk to commercial farm workers and those in close proximity to agricultural areas treated with Paraquat.
In addition to agricultural concerns, a 2020 study of individuals treated for Parkinson's disease found a clear correlation between the disease and the use of Paraquat in rural areas dominated by forestry, woodlands and pastures.
