I used trich as an engineering apprentice on a daily basis from 1968 - 1972 whilst working as an apprentice fitter in precision engineering.
My father also ran a hand laundry from the mid 50's to the early 60's although he does not have PD but he did have a heart valve replacement when he was 52.
I was diagnosed with PD in February 2004 aged 51.
Where did you get your info?
I was diagnosed a couple years ago, but, had symptoms for a while before that. I used trichloroethylene for a couple of years cleaning ink in the late 70's, until it was band. My skin would break open at the knuckles and my hands and arms would itch constantly.
I wondered if that exposure had anything to do with PD.
There have also been links with Hay Fever and PD as well as Ether and PD, I fall into those catagories also.
No studies I've seen can pinpoint any definative cause, other than pesticides.
You are not alone.
