Sunday, May 16, 2021 - Attorneys say that Syngenta and Chevron, the makers of the deadly toxic herbicide paraquat, must be held to the standards of the American people and brought to justice for lying about the link between paraquat and Parkinson's disease. Lawsuits have been filed by hundreds of individuals with Parkinson's disease alleging that working with the chemical by spraying it on farm crops caused them to develop the likely fatal neurological disorder. The attorneys representing paraquat Parkinson's victims say that scientific studies prove that science is on their side. The lawyers predict that paraquat Parkinson's lawsuits will expand in number over the coming months to form one of the largest mass tort legal actions. JD Supra Legal News told readers, "Jeffrey P. Goodman, a partner at SMB (said) "These filings are only the tip of the iceberg with what is expected to be the next major mass tort. The manufacturers of paraquat knew for decades that their product was linked to Parkinson's disease yet chose to hide this information from regulators and the public." Paraquat attorneys offer a free no-obligation consultation and work on a contingency basis.

Around the world, people that work on farms that spray paraquat, and have developed Parkinson's disease have a case against Syngenta and should consider filing a legal claim for monetary compensation. Paraquat Parkinson's attorneys will work for you on a contingency basis which means that you pay nothing unless your case is successful. Paraquat Parkinson's victims file lawsuits seeking reimbursement for medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and more. The National Law Review (NLR) states that dozens of countries have banned paraquat and quotes the New York Times as saying that paraquat is a weed killer so toxic that ingesting a single sip can be deadly. That has not stopped farmers in the United States from using paraquat in record amounts. Paraquat spraying has doubled in recent years and will continue to do so as weeds become more resistant to Monsanto's glyphosate. NLR also highlights the avalanche of research that confirms the link between working with paraquat on the farm and getting Parkinson's disease. NLR sites studies by "The American Journal of Epidemiology, JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Neurology, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences" as ones to focus on to get an idea of how strong the connection is between paraquat and Parkinson's.

Consumer tells readers that while paraquat is legal to use in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified it as a restricted use pesticide requires that it is available only to commercially licensed and informed users. Paraquat, unlike Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, is not available in lawn and garden stores because of the potentially catastrophic health problems that it could cause. "Paraquat poisoning through ingestion, inhalation or skin exposure can lead to serious health problems, including death," warns CN. CN quotes the EPA's statement on paraquat restriction. "All paraquat products registered for use in the United States are Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs) that may only be used by trained certified applicators."
