Smith & Stallworth Connects with Paraquat Victims & Their Families
One sip of paraquat can kill you, and the toxicity of the best-selling herbicide has never been questioned. In recent years, however, Gramoxone and other brands of paraquat have been linked to Parkinson’s disease. According to one study, paraquat exposure can increase your risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by 150%.
Due to its dangerous nature and the potential for long-term health effects, paraquat has been banned in more than 60 countries. Nevertheless, Syngenta has continued to sell the product in the United States without warning consumers of the potential risks.
Only licensed agricultural workers can handle paraquat, but many of these farmers and other employees have developed Parkinson’s due to paraquat exposure. If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease after working with paraquat, consider joining a mass tort for access to treatment and other funds.
If you or your family member have been exposed to paraquat and were diagnosed with Parkinson's disease or suffering from symptoms related to the disease, call us at (877) 888-5879.
