Who Is Most at Risk for Paraquat-Related Parkinson’s? Find Out Here
Preparing farmland that’s in the tens or even hundreds of acres is no easy feat, especially if you only have a few days to the start of the planting or rainy season. Everything nowadays is timed to a certain precision and as such, efficiency is of the ultimate importance. When land is allowed to go back to its fallow state, weeds and other undesirable plants usually take hold. This presents a problem for commercial farmers as these weeds are not only aggressive, but they have the potential to outcompete the commercial crop being grown such as corn or wheat. To this end, scientists developed a chemical in the 1950’s and 1960’s which was shown to kill all plants on contact. The chemical or product was named Paraquat, and it was at first used by the government in its war against drugs due to its efficacy when it comes to clearing whole fields of drug raw materials such as the poppy plant and marijuana. Over time, farmers started using it, and this ushered a new era of crop productivity and even surpluses, making the U.S. one of the biggest exporters of agricultural produce the world over. What the makers of this drug failed to mention, however, is the fact that Paraquat was especially toxic to human health. To this end, individuals who were exposed to Paraquat working in farms many decades ago were developing Parkinson’s disease once they reached mid-age. If you’re one of the people that used Paraquat as a farm hand or worker and are now contending with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s, we’d love to help you get compensated by way of a Paraquat class action lawsuit.
