Pesticides and the risk of Parkinsons

It has been reported in the Archives of neurology following research by the Parkinsons Institute in California that people who work with pesticides are 80% more likely to develop Parkinsons disease. There was three-fold risk of those exposed to weed killers paraquat and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid or to the insecticide permethrin

Agricultural workers are clearly at risk.

Parkinsons disease affects up to 120,000 in the UK.
