Pesticide exposure may contribute to development of Parkinson's disease
In January 2013, results published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences pointed out a mechanism of action for the fungicide benomyl, a persistent pesticide that is still present in the environment despite having been banned by the U.S. in 2001. Now, results from a new study published in the current issue of the journal Neurology show that several additional pesticides may be involved in the development of Parkinson's disease, with a mechanism similar to that described for benomyl.
