Paraquat dichloride, commonly known as “paraquat”, is a popular, fast-acting, non-selective herbicide agent used in the United States. Paraquat is known to be a toxic weed killer that is lethal at low doses, and exposure has been linked to adverse health effects, such as Parkinson’s disease.
Those that face the greatest risk of exposure to paraquat include the agricultural or other trades where workers apply the herbicide and come into direct contact with it: farmers, landscapers, groundskeepers, gardeners, herbicide applicators, and crop dusters, to name a few.
In general, you could be exposed to paraquat by inhaling it through the mouth or nose, skin exposure (i.e., mist or droplets getting into cuts) or ingestion.
The CDC provides an overview and an extensive list of signs and symptoms of a paraquat exposure.
