What is Paraquat?

Since the 1960s, paraquat has been used as an herbicide since many weeds and grasses became resistant to most herbicides. Since then, many countries have recognized its toxicity and opted to ban the chemical altogether.

Despite this, paraquat is still heavily used in the United States. Users must obtain a commercial license to apply the chemical, but many farmers and laborers are now experiencing the long-term impacts of paraquat exposure.

Paraquat Poisoning

Paraquat poisoning is most common through ingestion; however, studies have shown that it may be harmful through skin exposure. There is a laundry list of health problems associated with paraquat exposure. The most common conditions are:

  • Heart failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver failure
  • Lung scarring

If you believe you are experiencing paraquat poisoning, you must seek medical attention as soon as possible. There are several treatments health care providers can do to help lessen the impact of paraquat poisoning.

Paraquat & Parkinson’s Disease

There has been extensive research connecting paraquat exposure to Parkinson’s disease. One study published in May of 2019 stated that “Parkinson’s Disease occurrence was 25% higher in participants exposed to paraquat.” This study, along with many others, have found the same connection and concluded that paraquat exposure greatly enhances your risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder that causes the nerve cells in the brain to gradually break down. This decline can have detrimental effects on an individual’s motor functions.

The most common symptoms of Parkinson’s include:

  • Tremor
  • Slowed Movement
  • Rigid Muscles
  • Impaired Posture and Balance
  • Loss of Automatic Movements
  • Speech Changes
  • Writing Changes

Who’s Responsible

Many individuals impacted by the long-term effects of paraquat exposure have sought legal action against the major paraquat manufacturers Syngenta and Chevron. Farmers and laborers have exposed that these companies failed to warn them about the damaging neurological effects of paraquat.
