Factsheet Public Eye, 2017
This literature review, compiled by Richard Isenring, gives an update on the scientific information on the adverse health effects by paraquat. Over 200 scientific publications are referenced and summarized in the report – probably the most comprehensive paraquat literature review published in recent years. The report shows evidence of the longer term, negative health effects of paraquat and its link with chronic diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease. However, it also clearly documents the positive health effects in countries that have implemented a ban on paraquat, or stricter regulations.
