A study recently published in the Archives of Neurology found a link between use of pesticides in a person's occupation and development of Parkinson's disease. In fact, three chemical compounds were found to be associated with a three-fold increase in risk of developing Parkinson's disease.

In the study, researchers wrote: "Occupational use of pesticides was associated with an almost 80 percent greater risk of parkinsonism. Growing evidence suggests a causal association between pesticide use and parkinsonism."

Such scientific data cannot be ignored! Urge President Obama to ask the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to investigate a link between occupational pesticide use and American workers -- and develop new policies to protect workers accordingly.

THIS IS THE LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. SAME LETTERS CAN BE ADDRESSED TO ANY OTHER GOV. REP. IN ANY COUNTRY

Dear President Obama,

A study recently published in the Archives of Neurology found a link between use of pesticides in a person's occupation and development of Parkinson's disease. In fact, three chemical compounds were found to be associated with a three-fold increase in risk of developing Parkinson's disease. I urge you to ask the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to investigate a link between occupational pesticide use and American workers -- and develop new policies to protect workers accordingly.

In the study, researchers wrote: "Occupational use of pesticides was associated with an almost 80 percent greater risk of parkinsonism. Growing evidence suggests a causal association between pesticide use and parkinsonism."

Pesticides are widely used across the agricultural sector -- and if we are exposing our agricultural workers to an increased likelihood of developing Parkinson's disease, we must investigate this and develop proper safety policies! I urge you to contact OSHA about this research today.

  1. Chronic pain sufferers who also have an anxiety disorder may have lower pain tolerance or a lower pain threshold, this indicated findrxonline in article. People with an anxiety disorder may be more sensitive to medication side effects or more fearful of harmful side effects of medication than chronic pain suffers who aren’t anxious, and they may also be more fearful of pain than someone who experiences pain without anxiety.

  2. The health system must help people with chronic illness and much suffering to get the right medicines to counteract the pain they suffer, it is necessary that health reforms are established quickly to benefit people if needed.
    Since these drugs for chronic pain such as Vicodin, Lortab, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, are opioids narcotics are not available for high prices that companies put these drugs, we hope that the reform actually helps these people.
