Exposure to the herbicide paraquat is associated with ParkinsonâEUR(TM)s. Paraquat kills cells through a mechanism called oxidative stress, but how this happens has not been explained. Do you remember paraquat? AKA Roundup. Used in the 70s on marijuana crops .

Thanks for posting, Beryl. Paraquat is not Round Up. Paraquat is aka Gramoxone. (Round Up is glyphosate) I am worried because several years ago I worked at an ag research center and my boss sent me out to work in a field. About 15 minutes later the farm manager saw me and began shouting for me to get out because the field had just been spayed with paraquat (it had been "paraquated" as they called it). I have always been worried about what long range harm that exposure could have done to me.
