United Phosphorous and paraquat exposure
In addition to herbicides, United Phosphorous also manufactures fungicides. Nevertheless, one of their best-selling products is Bonfire, which contains paraquat. While the label of their product provides information with regard to the dangers of poisoning, it does not mention the connection between prolonged exposure to the herbicide and Parkinson’s disease, which is why numerous people have been filing lawsuits and claims against United Phosphorous within recent years. The company claims that they have the perfect solutions to the elimination of the following resistant weeds from a wide range of crops:
- parthenium weed
- Palmer amaranth
- sour grass
- burning bush
- swollen finger grass
- common ragweed
The majority of these weeds are resistant to glyphosate, another toxic herbicide that can be found under the brand name Roundup in the United States. For this reason, farmers and agricultural workers use paraquat products to get rid of these unwanted plants. Nonetheless, most of them are not aware of the connection between paraquat exposure and Parkinson’s disease, which they can develop even if they wear adequate protective equipment when they are applying Bonfire. If you have a family member who worked with paraquat and subsequently developed Parkinson’s disease, we will help you recover financial compensation on their behalf from United Phosphorous.
