Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neuron disease that is thought to be caused by the death of neurons that produce dopamine in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra. This disease was once thought to be caused by genetic factors, but it has recently been shown to be due to exposure to toxins in the environment such as the herbicide Paraquat, which has been alleged to increase levels of oxidative stress in cells, causing them to age and die much faster. If this happens over a large area of the body such as the brain, the regenerative properties of certain cells won’t be able to keep up, causing permanent damage to brain areas. Dopamine is responsible for certain vital physiological actions such as movement, motivation, learning, and intelligence, and the death of dopamine neurons can turn a once vivacious and bright personality into a shell of their former self, unable to care for themselves. If you were exposed to Paraquat as a farmer, farmhand or someone that lived near a commercial farm, it may be possible for you to file a legal claim to recover money damages, and we’re here to help.

Here are some of the promising treatment options for Parkinson’s disease:
Levodopa For Parkinson’s
Given the fact that it may not be possible to recover dopamine neurons once they have been destroyed by the herbicide Paraquat, it may nevertheless be possible to replace dopamine, the chemical through the prescription of Levodopa, a pill that increases levels of dopamine in brain synapses. Please note that Levodopa is only available by prescription, and that it must be taken as directed, and stop if you notice signs of aggression, and manic behavior, or addictive behavior.
Surgical Intervention for Parkinson’s
The death of dopamine neurons in the brain leaves part of the brain responsible for things such as movement and learning crippled, so to speak. While the patient is awake, doctors may operate on the patient and create tissue lesions in order to improve the individual’s behavior, movement and other vital physiological functions.
