Default Sadly enough I think I found what caused my PD.

I was 30 when I was diagnosed. I think back and I remember the year I was diagnosed I had been treating our yard for fire ants. The product I bought was in a small green can, it stunk terribly. The sales guy at the lawn and garden dept. had opened it to show me what it looked like. He must not have replaced the top on the can tightly. Because when I got home it had spilled out on my carpet in my brand new truck! Despite all the cleaning and vacuuming I did I couldn't get the smell out. The active chemical in it was Acephate, an organophospate which I know from my EMS background is not good to have had an exposure to. I am confident of this since I was so annoyed by the constant odor.
Thing is, so what? Right. We move on.

Dear Jim,

Einstein said "Either everything is a miracle or nothing is a miracle". yep....we move on.....why search for the match that lit up the forest (which was probably very dry to begin with or predisposed to fire by other inherent weaknesses )
i searched alot too (for years) and all the searching just let me blame something or someone when i now believe that the origin of the origin was some fear in me which then attracted the outcome. Not any single thing but all things together... Here an excerpt from below cited article:

"A related, methodological assumption is reductionism, the idea that if you want to understand whole systems, you need to analyze their constituent parts, starting with the parts' parts. With regard to particle physics, this idea has famously been likened to trying to understand a swiss watch by smashing it into another swiss watch. But in medicine, where clinical practice tends to lag behind cutting edge science by a few decades, reductionism still reigns supreme. So does what I'll call compartmentalization, whereby specialists with increasingly narrow areas of focus pursue uncoordinated lines of enquiry. This can easily give rise to dissociation, where the patient effectively gets lost in the shuffle of labs and chart notes. The forest gets lost for the trees."

pd at 30 -guess you are challenged to be one very patient guy! (ants are patient by nature!)
Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors....
Nature loves courage.

Default yep-I thought I'd just get it out of the way early.

Yes, PD at 30. Not exactly a bucket list type of achievement. That was followed by testicular cancer which I whipped after 3 surgeries and chemotherapy. They have a great weight loss regimen when you're on chemo but it has its downsides too! And so I walk

Default Hi Jim

I do not doubt what you say for one minute. In the 50's I ate the blueberries right off the bushes up in Michigan. I got Epson Barr, and deteriorated ever since. I have mulitapal Auto Immune problems. So sorry you have PD. I was exposed to DDT, directly. Have you read " Silent Spring" by Rachel Carson, that pretty much states what you have figured out. We all have been exposed to too many toxins. In my youthful neighborhood out of 25 families, 20 had cancer. They and me, lived under big power lines. God bless us all. ginnie
