The Many Names of Paraquat

Paraquat is a highly toxic herbicide that has become more popular in the U.S. despite bans elsewhere in the world. The danger from ingesting Paraquat is so high it is treated with a blue dye and given a sharp scent to prevent workers from confusing it with other liquids. Unfortunately, these methods do not protect against the dangers of long-term exposure, which include an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.

Many individuals who are exposed to Paraquat may not know because the chemical is sold under many names. If you live or work in areas around agricultural zones or other wild places that control weed growth via herbicides, you should find out if landowners use:
