Paraquat is extremely toxic and there is no known remedy. Due to its toxic nature, the U.S. put in several safeguards, including adding a chemical to induce vomiting if it was accidentally swallowed. Paraquat's dangers were known by manufacturers, but they ignored them.
Most people were exposed to the toxin when it was inhaled, sprayed on plants, or both. The result was toxic levels in their bodies, which could have contributed to Parkinson's disease. Paraquat exposure is a serious risk that has been well known for many decades. Paraquat was used by companies to make profits, not for the benefit of consumers. Paraquat victims and their families have the right to seek justice through a lawsuit.
Recent scientific studies have shown a strong link between paraquat exposure and an increased risk of serious health problems like organ failure and Parkinson's disease. Paraquat has been banned in 32 countries. This makes one wonder if paraquat is still legal. Paraquat is legal in the United States, but there are multiple multi-district litigation lawsuits being filed across the country.
