How does exposure to pesticides across the lifespan impact ones risk of Parkinson's disease?

Existing studies on a small scale have linked some pesticide exposure to neurologic outcomes. To investigate this on a national scale we propose collection of occupational history on all participants. Of those who worked or lived on a farm for more than one year we would follow up with a detailed questionnaire on exposures, such as pesticides and detailed use of personal protective equipment. Follow up on a control group as well. Outcome data would be collected through medical records
