Paraquat is a highly toxic herbicide used to kill weeds and other vegetation. Although the acute effects of paraquat poisoning are well-established, new research shows that long-term, low-level exposure to paraquat can increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder characterized by tremors, loss of mobility, and other serious symptoms. There is no cure for Parkinson’s, and the effects of the disease can be debilitating.
