Is Paraquat™ Safe?
As indicated by data from the American Council of Science and Health, Paraquat™’s glyphosate is another commonly used known toxic herbicide with relative toxicity of 33-250. Exposure to Paraquat™ is also associated with adverse health effects, including Parkinson’s disease.
The degree of poisoning linked to Paraquat™ depends on the amount, route, duration of exposure, and the person’s health at the time of exposure.
Paraquat™ can cause direct damage when it comes in contact with the lining of the mouth, stomach, or intestines.
After Paraquat™ enters the human body, it is distributed to all areas of the human body. Paraquat™ causes toxic chemical reactions in many parts of the body, mainly the lungs, liver, and kidneys.
Cells in the lungs may selectively accumulate Paraquat™ through active transport.
