Paraquat, an industrial-strength herbicide, has been in use since the 1960s. Paraquat, a toxic chemical, can cause death if inhaled. This is why most European countries have banned it. Paraquat isn't banned in the United States and is used by large commercial farmers.

Recent evidence has shown that paraquat prolonged exposure can cause early-onset Parkinson's disease. Research has shown that farmers who have been exposed to paraquat for a long period of time have a higher risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Paraquat was also applied to farms near people who have Parkinson's disease.

Syngenta is a Swiss agrochemical manufacturer that manufactures paraquat. Evidence suggests that Syngenta knew about the causal link between paraquat, Parkinson's disease, and years ago but intentionally concealed it. Syngenta is now facing product liability claims from American distributors and farm workers who were exposed to paraquat.
