Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles have made a startling discovery – exposure to pesticides and suffering a personal injury – such as a head wound – increases one’s changes of developing Parkinson’s disease.

The disease itself transpires when nerve cells in the substantia nigra region of the brain are damaged and can no longer generate dopamine, a nerve-signaling particle that assists in controlling muscle movement.

Beate Ritz, MD, PhD, leader of the study has made a public statement indicating that a head injury may trigger a physiological development that intensifies the vulnerability in brain cells to defend themselves from toxic pesticides, or vice versa.  Exposure to pesticides, which thankfully has been reduced in California, increases the possibilities of head injury victims to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
