A recent study shows conclusive evidence that certain pesticides are related to Parkinson’s. Pesticides can be found in conventionally grown produce and are often times over-applied or improperly applied in the garden, or used indoors without ventilation.

The lesson: eat organic produce and don’t use pesticides in or outside your home. If you can’t buy all organic product, here is a list of the top twelve products with the most pesticides. Also, Beyond Pesticides offers some natural alternatives to regular pesticides, as do other organizations. Parkinson’s is not the only disease that pesticides have been linked to, so don’t wait to get rid of them!
