Pesticides Expert Witnesses & Benomyl

Pesticides expert witnesses may report on pesticide products, pesticide regulations, and pesticide contamination. Recent research is showing a strong link between pesticides and Parkinson's disease among farm workers and those who live near croplands. PsychCentral.com reports that UCLA neurologists have discovered a link between Parkinson's and the pesticide benomyl with effects ten years after it was banned.

Pesticides paraquat, maneb and ziram have also been tied to increases in Parkinson’s not just among farm workers but in those who simply lived or worked near fields where the pesticides were utilized.
