Medical scientists have known that toxic chemicals most commonly used in the past in pesticides and other horticultural products are attributable to many conditions and diseases, however, recent interest between early onset of Parkinson's disease and insecticide/herbicide exposure has proven a link. Researchers have analyzed groups of people with Parkinson's who have had previous exposure to the environmental toxins, and found a common association, but no knowledge of how the damage to a certain part in the brain occurs, or which particular chemical causes it. Experts can confirm that a link with farming, gardening and living in the country increases a person's risk for developing the 'shaking palsy', Parkinson's disease.
