Pesticides and Parkinson


Findings of a study funded by The Parkinson Alliance reveal new clues about Parkinson’s.

(Kingston, N.J., January 4, 2013) The Parkinson Alliance is proud to have supported this research, led by UCLA researchers, in which they “… have discovered a link between Parkinson's and another pesticide, benomyl, whose toxicological effects still linger some 10 years after the chemical was banned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” according to news released by UCLA.

The research is published in the current online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  This study was funded in part by many supporters including The Parkinson Alliance.
