What’s Happening with Paraquat and Parkinson’s Lawsuits?

They can include loss of coordination, tremors, fatigue, speech difficulties, and other challenging issues. Unfortunately, America is one of the few major countries that still use this pesticide.

Can Surgical Staplers Cause Serious Injuries & Death?
