Pesticide and Parkinson’s

A little too ironic. Exposure to low levels of the organic pesticide rotenone gives monkeys Parkinson’s, indicating it may have the same effect on people. Rotenone is a natural insecticide found in some garden products and still used by some organic farmers. Monkeys given rotenone show the same neurodegeneration human Parkinson’s victims do.
