Mass Tort

Herbicides are used in the prevention of weeds as well as to prepare farm fields for the growing of crops. Weeds not only have a negative effect on farmland, sucking out just about all nutrients in the soil, they can also prevent food crops from taking root causing massive amounts of losses. California is known as one of the largest breadbaskets of the world due to its massive agricultural undertaking when it comes to important crops such as corn and wheat: to this end, commercial farmers in this state use a herbicide known as Paraquat which is known as an effective, non-selective and broad spectrum herbicide which kills everything it comes into contact with. In the 1970s, the U.S. government used Paraquat on fields that were illegally growing narcotics such as poppies meant for the production of heroin as well as marijuana in South America and various parts of the country. What the makers of this herbicide failed to let the government and its citizens, however, is the fact that Paraquat may have toxic effects on the body and lead to neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s, which is known to be irreversible.

How Paraquat is Linked to Parkinson’s

What makes Paraquat so dangerous to the brain is due to the fact that upon inhalation or ingestion, it latches on to neurons that produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is responsible for movement and motivation and other vital biological functions. The death of dopamine neurons is thought to be responsible for the development of Parkinson’s disease, which is thought to be irreversible. In fact, Paraquat is so toxic that those who are exposed to it in their TEENS are 400 to 600 times more likely to develop this tragic neurocognitive disease.
