What is Paraquat?
Paraquat is an herbicide used to kill weeds at the commercial level. Paraquat is very toxic, which is why it is listed as a “restricted-use pesticide” by the EPA. Though the herbicide is very effective at killing weeds, it has also drastically affected many individuals who’ve used the product or who’ve been exposed to it.
What is the Problem With Paraquat?
Paraquat is restricted to the commercial level, which means farmers and other commercial parties are generally the only people who use the chemical, thereby making them the most at risk of injury. That being said, even those who’ve simply been exposed to the chemical for a short period of time may also be at risk of injury. Unfortunately, the most common injury associated with paraquat exposure is Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease comes with a wide array of symptoms, including tremors, balance issues, cognitive impairment, and more. You should also understand that there are several immediate symptoms of paraquat exposure, including the following:
- Breathing issues
- Pain or swelling in the mouth/throat
