The risk of Parkinson's disease is 250% higher among those working with or exposed to paraquat compared to the general population. Watch for signs like slow movement, tremors and stiff limbs, impaired balance and coordination or impaired balance and coordination that may be caused by paraquat exposure. You or someone you love should seek medical attention immediately if they exhibit some or all of these symptoms because Parkinson's disease is highly likely to affect them.
