What Is Paraquat?

Paraquat is an herbicide that has been in use since the 1960s to control weeds. Recently, however, researchers and health advocates have begun to recognize the serious risks associated with paraquat exposure. Long-term exposure to paraquat has been linked to a greatly increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Farmers and agricultural workers are particularly at risk for paraquat exposure due to their frequent handling of the chemical; even those living near industrial farms may also be exposed to air or water contamination from drift or runoff. The Unified Parkinson’s Advocacy Council estimates that prolonged exposure to paraquat increases a person’s chance of developing Parkinson’s by up to 600%.

Given the severity of this risk, paraquat is now tightly restricted to professional use only as a weedkiller. Those who handle the chemical must take special precautions to reduce exposure and protect themselves from potential health risks. It’s important to stay informed about paraquat safety so that you can protect yourself and those around you from unnecessary danger.

Paraquat Exposure Linked to Parkinson’s Disease

The EPA is currently conducting a review of the safety of paraquat and has yet to impose any restrictions on its usage. This herbicide can cause serious health problems in humans, including Parkinson’s disease and lung damage. Studies have also shown that exposure to paraquat increases the risk of cancer and reproductive harm.

In addition to these health risks, paraquat is toxic to wildlife and can be particularly harmful when it seeps into groundwater or runs off into nearby streams or rivers. The herbicide has been linked to declines in fish populations as well as other aquatic organisms.

Given the potential danger posed by paraquat, many countries around the world have chosen to ban it from being used in their agricultural sectors. In the US, however, paraquat continues to be widely used with over 11 million pounds of herbicide sprayed each year.

Everyone needs to understand the potential risks associated with this toxic herbicide so that proper action can be taken to reduce its usage and protect both human health and our environment.

Without these measures, we may continue to see an increase in the number of people suffering from illnesses caused by paraquat exposure as well as a decline in biodiversity due to environmental contamination. The time is now for us all to act on this issue and help put an end to paraquat use in our country.
