Paraquat and the Risk of Parkinson’s

According to an article published in Nature magazine: “Several studies have suggested that pesticide exposure and life in rural areas are significant risk factors for Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Among other pesticides, Paraquat (PQ) has been linked to PD by epidemiological studies and experimental work in rodents, in which it causes lesions in the substantia nigra, pars compacta.”

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects your movement. Parkinson’s disease can’t be cured, but medications may help improve your symptoms. The symptoms associated with PD are:

  • Tremor. A tremor, or shaking, usually begins in a limb, often your hand or fingers. You may rub your thumb and forefinger back and forth, known as a pill-rolling tremor. Your hand may tremble when it’s at rest.
  • Slowed movement (bradykinesia). Over time, Parkinson’s disease may slow your movement, making simple tasks difficult and time-consuming. Your steps may become shorter when you walk. It may be difficult to get out of a chair. You may drag your feet as you try to walk.
  • Rigid muscles. Muscle stiffness may occur in any part of your body. The stiff muscles can be painful and limit your range of motion. Impaired posture and balance. Your posture may become stooped, or you may have balance problems.
  • Loss of automatic movements. You may have a decreased ability to perform unconscious movements including blinking, smiling, or swinging your arms when you walk.
  • ​Speech changes. You may speak softly, quickly, slur, or hesitate before talking. Your speech may be more monotone rather than having the usual inflections.
  • Writing changes. It may become hard to write, and your writing may appear small.1
