Have you Been Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease After Exposure to Paraquat?
Our Florida Paraquat Exposure Attorneys Will Fight for You
Paraquat is one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States. Every year, the U.S. uses an average of 8 million pounds of paraquat on crops. What makes its popularity so alarming is that numerous studies published over the last decade have shown that exposure to paraquat may cause Parkinson’s disease. While the European Union and countries like China and Brazil have banned paraquat, use of the herbicide in the U.S. has increased by almost 200% since 2009.
