What Herbicides Contain Paraquat?
The powerful herbicide (weed killer) Paraquat has been linked to Parkinson’s disease. In the wake of these alarming findings, many of those potentially exposed are wondering what specific products contain Paraquat, a potentially deadly chemical.
Paraquat is used across the United States and increasingly common as plant resistance to other herbicides like potentially cancer-causing Roundup has grown. Paraquat is manufactured by many different companies and sold under many brands, and is commonly marketed under the trade name Gramoxone. Many different companies may be liable for Parkinson’s disease potentially caused by Paraquat products.

“I Think I Was Exposed to Paraquat. How Can I Tell?”
Paraquat is an extremely powerful chemical that may cause Parkinson’s disease and is fatal if ingested in even the smallest quantities.

- Many Paraquat-containing herbicides are tinted blue
- Paraquat gives off a very distinctive and unpleasant smell that has been described as “pungent” and instantly recognizable
- Paraquat is a “restricted use” chemical and applicators using Paraquat are required by EPA to undergo special training and obtain a license to use it
