What are known effects of paraquat exposure?

Short term effects of paraquat exposure include skin rash, inflammation of the lining of the mouth, stomach and intestines, and fluid in the lungs, among others.

Is there a cure for paraquat poisoning?

As stated by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “no proven antidote or cure exists for paraquat poisoning.”  Once ingested the pesticide works its way through the entire body, affecting each part as it goes. Many people die of paraquat poisoning. Those who survive are at increased risk of Parkinson’s disease and other serious illnesses. 

What is the paraquat lawsuit all about?

Paraquat manufacturers and distributors have knowingly exposed the public to a hazardous, toxic, and carcinogenic pesticide that is used to induce Parkinson’s disease in laboratory rats.
