Pesticides can trigger MS and Parkinson’s disease

Pesticides can cause brain damage and trigger conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, according to scientists. A landmark study claims that chemicals routinely used by farmers in the UK and around the world can result in neurological diseases. The research was carried out by the Energy & Environmental Research Centre at the University of North Dakota. Funded by the U.S. Department of Health, laboratory tests on rats revealed damage to the brain and to the gastro-intestinal system. The research team is now evaluating how humans are exposed to pesticides in order to establish what measures are needed to minimise any adverse effects. (The Daily Mail)
