Paraquat increases risk of Parkinson’s — tell Congress to ban it!

Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) have introduced a bill to reduce the number and types of toxic chemicals in our environment. This includes banning the herbicide paraquat, which is thought to increase Parkinson’s risk by 320 percent. More than 30 countries have already banned paraquat, including China where the chemical’s main manufacturer is headquartered. Please email your Senators and Representative and ask them to support people with Parkinson’s disease by co-sponsoring this legislation.
