Ensuring You Receive the Settlement You Deserve

If you or a loved one suffered or is currently suffering from Parkinson’s disease or other health concerns that you believe could be linked to Paraquat exposure, you could be entitled to financial compensation.

Paraquat, also known as Gramoxone, is a well-known chemical herbicide that is highly toxic. It is used primarily to control weed and grass growth and can cause fatal poisoning when ingested or inhaled. According to the American Council on Science and Health, Paraquat’s relative toxicity of glyphosate ranges from 33-250 grams. A lethal dose for the average individual is around 2.5 grams, and it is even more toxic when inhaled. Paraquat exposure has been linked to adverse health effects, including Parkinson’s disease.

Paraquat’s Link to Parkinson’s Disease

Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) shows that individuals who used Paraquat and had a specific genetic variation were 11 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease. This indicated that some people are at greater risk by being exposed to this herbicide.

Paraquat is banned in 32 countries across the globe and was recently banned by China who decided to phase out the chemical in 2012 due to health concerns. However, the use of Paraquat has continued in the United States as it is a popular alternative to Roundup. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), paraquat is available for use only by commercially licensed users as it is highly toxic.
