Manganese Posoinging and Exposure linked to Parkinson's Disease

Manganese has been identified as one of the 10 leading causes of work-related disease and injuries. Exposure to manganese has been linked to speeding up the onset of Parkinson’s disease and resulting in instances of manganism, manganese poisoning, as well as other serious conditions. The danger of manganese exposure is the inability to effectively diagnose the adverse health conditions that can occur because of the similarity the symptoms have to common, non-occupational conditions. In addition, manganese exposure causes conditions, like Parkinson’s disease, that is not associated to occupational illness.

Manganese can cause serious conditions and permanent damage. The subtle and slow effect that manganese has on the body makes it especially dangerous. If you have been affected by manganese exposure and would like to learn your legal rights, please contact us.
