Paraquat is a weed-killing herbicide that’s restricted to commercial use only due to its high toxicity. Farmers and agricultural laborers are most at risk for exposure. However, others who live near farms may also be at risk of exposure. Sadly, this herbicide has been linked to Parkinson’s Disease, as well as other side effects.
Evidence from the Unified Parkinson’s Advocacy Council suggests that chronic exposure to paraquat can increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by 200–600%. In fact, while Paraquat has been banned in 32 countries, including China and the European Union, it’s use in the United States continues to grow.
