OCCUPATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH PARKINSON'S DISEASE

Archives of Neurology [2009] 66 (9) : 1106-1113 (Tanner CM, Ross GW, Jewell SA, Hauser RA, Jankovic J, Factor SA, Bressman S, Deligtisch A, Marras C, Lyons KE, Bhudhikanok GS, Roucoux DF, Meng C, Abbott RD, Langston JW.) Complete abstract

Work in agriculture, education, health care, or welding was not associated with increased risk of Parkinsonism. Unexpected increased risks associated with legal, construction and extraction, or religious occupations were not maintained after adjustment for duration. However, having worked in business, finance, legal occupations, construction and extraction, or transportation and material moving was associated with postural instability and gait difficulty. None of the occupations, job tasks, or task-related exposures were associated with Parkinson's Disease being diagnosed at a younger age. Pesticide use made the likelihood of Parkinsonism almost twice (1.9 times) more likely.  Use of any of 8 pesticides more than doubled (2.2 times) the likelihood. This risk was even higher (2.59 times more likely) with the use of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid.
