Mounting evidence suggests a link between Paraquat, a widely used toxic herbicide (plant killer) primarily used for grass and weed control throughout the United States, and several health-related issues such as Parkinson’s disease. According to multiple studies, farmers, agricultural workers and bystanders exposed to spray drift may be at risk of developing Parkinson’s disease from exposure to the herbicide, Paraquat.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s
- Slowed Movement
- Muscle Stiffness
- Impaired Posture and Balance
- Loss of Unconscious Movements
- Changes in Speech and/or Writing
Paraquat Banned Across the Globe
Largely based on human health concerns, Paraquat is currently banned in 32 countries, including the European Union. Ironically, even though Paraquat is manufactured by Swiss-based Syngenta, it has been banned in Switzerland since 1989.
Paraquat manufacturers were allegedly aware of the health risks associated with the herbicide and failed to properly inform users on how to protect themselves from such risks. We urge those affected to contact us today to pursue legal action and get compensation.
