Commercial Herbicides are typically tank-mixed with other herbicides for optimized grass and weed control for soybeans, wheat, corn, cotton, citrus, fruits, vegetables, and other crops. They are typically applied to fields with commercial-grade sprayers, crop dusters, and farm workers.
Mounting evidence suggests a link between commercial herbicides like Gramoxone and many others. These widely-used toxic chemicals are primarily used for grass and weed control and have been linked to several health-related issues such as Parkinson’s disease.
Who is at risk of exposure?
Workers who used commercial herbicides or entered agricultural fields after applying the herbicide and bystanders exposed to spray drift may have suffered injuries due to exposure.
The most common injury associated with these commercial herbicides is Parkinson’s disease, a debilitating nervous system disorder that affects as many as 60,000 people in the United States annually.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include:
? Slowed movement
? Muscle stiffness
? Impaired posture and balance
? Loss of unconscious movements
? Changes in speech and/or writing
Manufacturers were allegedly aware of the health risks associated with these herbicides and failed to properly inform users on how to protect themselves.
