Data Linking Paraquat To Parkinson's "About As Persuasive As It Gets," NIH Scientist Says

Paraquat is often used to control weeds in soybean, corn and other crops, grapes and orchards, pasture and hay fields, and to defoliate cotton.

Studies show that workers who mixed, sprayed, or were exposed to the chemical are at higher risk. In fact, a 2011 Study by the National Institutes of Health and Parkinson’s Institute surveyed farmers in North Carolina and Iowa and determined these farmers were 2 ½ times more likely to develop Parkinson’s if they were exposed to Paraquat or Rotenone.

And, in 2012, a study found that individuals with certain genetics who were exposed to Paraquat were 11 times more likely to develop PD.
