Paraquat (Gramoxone) Litigation
First used in the 1960’s, Paraquat is one of the most popular herbicides in the U.S. In the U.S., Paraquat is classified as “restricted use”, which means it can only be purchased and used by licensed applicators. Paraquat is restricted to commercial use due to its high toxicity. If you are a farmer, rancher, landscaper, or gardener, you have probably come into contact with Paraquat.
Link to Parkinson’s Disease
Research proves that Paraquat greatly increases the risk of a person developing Parkinson’s Disease. Paraquat is dangerous to Americans who have worked in food and agriculture. According to the Unified Parkinson’s Advocacy Council, evidence strongly suggests that chronic exposure to Paraquat can increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by 200-600%.
