Don't let your family become just one more guinea pig for science and the chemical industry. Chemical industry decision makers know that pesticides and fungicides kill more than insects and mold - they kill people, usually those who innocent, illiterate, or unaware.

Is pesticides use in your home, place of worship, place of employment, playground, sports fields and centers, schools and day-cares committing your loved ones to Parkinson Disease? Probably.  
Become informed.  
  1. Demand product name, ingredients, and safety information of all pesticides and fungicides used in buildings, on soil and surfaces contacted or occupied by you and your family.   
  2. Record pesticides and fungicides used by your family and others and keep this information listed on family health records.
  3. Monitor news and research findings about pesticide and fungicides and keep records of all findings. 
  4. Promptly report pesticide or fungicide exposure and or subsequent disease to your physician. 


Parkinson disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder particularly characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. Pesticide exposure has been associated with PD occurrence, and we previously reported that the fungicide benomyl interferes with several cellular processes potentially relevant to PD pathogenesis.
