What Crops Is Paraquat Used For?

Paraquat is a powerful herbicide that’s currently only approved for commercial use in the United States. It’s several more times more powerful than weed killers like Roundup, which contain glyphosate and are approved for household use, but is also consequently several times more toxic to humans. Paraquat is toxic enough that it can cause death instantly when ingested, but what makes it most dangerous might be the fact that research suggests that any type of exposure—even from just living or working near a farm where the herbicide has[...]

California Law Allows Families to Collect Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Benefits

In January 2022, amendments to a California law will go into effect, allowing the surviving estate of individuals lost to mesothelioma to receive damages for pain and suffering. This is a major legal change from the previously-existing 1961 law that blocked pain and suffering and disfigurement damages from being awarded to any party but the injured plaintiff. Before the recent amendment, California was one of only five states to restrict these damages to the plaintiff alone and deny family members from obtaining this type of compensation on behalf[...]

What’s the Difference Between Paraquat and Glyphosate?

Two popular weed killers—Paraquat and glyphosate (better known as Roundup) are currently being heavily scrutinized by medical and legal experts in the U.S. due to hundreds of individuals and family members who are coming forward with diagnoses of Parkinson’s disease and cancer, namely non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Evidence so far has shown that there are links between exposure to each of the herbicides and the diseases that those coming forward have been diagnosed with.

Paraquat Brand Names and Manufacturers

The weedkiller Paraquat is so dangerous that, in order for it to be sold in the United States, it must be dyed blue as a warning, scented to discourage contact, and laced with a vomit-inducing agent in case it is swallowed. Not only is it highly poisonous upon immediate contact, but it has also been shown to cause Parkinson’s disease and birth defects. Yet it can still be legally sold and used in the United States. This is not the case in the rest of the world. Paraquat[...]

October 2021 Update on Paraquat Litigation

Paraquat is a toxic chemical that is used widely in the United States as an herbicide to control grass and weed growth. Because of the extremely injurious nature of this product—most notably its strong links to Parkinson’s disease—hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against agrochemical companies like Syngenta, Growmark, and Chevron. Plaintiffs have claimed that these manufacturers failed to warn consumers of the risks associated with exposure to the Paraquat contained in their products. Over the past year, the number of people who have come forward against these[...]

Our Experience Is Personal

Scott L. Frost’s Family Experience with Lung Cancer

For most of his life, Scott L. Frost’s father, who was in the construction industry, worked with and sold products containing asbestos without knowing the materials were dangerous. He was diagnosed with lung cancer 40 years after starting his career, leading Scott’s family to fight like they had never fought before.

Pictured here with his wife of over 50 years, Scott’s father eventually succumbed to the cancer. Since then, Scott has made it his mission to do everything in his power to make sure corporations understand how dangerous asbestos is and prevent future generations from suffering as his family did, as well as support research that may lead to finding a cure.
