Paraquat is an herbicide that has been widely used by agricultural workers to kill weeds, grass, and other unwanted vegetation. Paraquat is now believed to cause Parkinson’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of the brain that alters the central nervous system’s ability to control bodily movement. Parkinson’s disease can gradually lead to motor symptoms, such as tremors, muscle spasms, slurred voice, and poor balance.
