Help Ban a Parkinson’s-causing Chemical Called Paraquat

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) will soon introduce a bill to reduce toxic chemicals in our environment, including the herbicide paraquat. Exposure to paraquat increases Parkinson’s risk by 320 percent. More than 30 countries have already banned paraquat — including China, where the chemical’s manufacturer is headquartered.

Please email your Senators and Representative and ask them to support you and the Parkinson’s community by becoming an original co-sponsor of this legislation. Your lawmakers needs to hear from you today!
