Dose anyone know of this ? Trichloroethylene has anyone been in contact with and develop Parkinson's ? My husband worked with it and he died in 2000.? He only lived 2 years he was only 59 at time of death. I never thought he had true Parkinson's. I see there is now a link to Trichloroethylene and Parkinson's

What amazes me is even though it has been proven that TCE and Parkinson's is linked you just don't see
that many claims. I have a claim in now (expect a denial ) but I guess I can appeal it.
During my enlistment (mid 60's ) we practically bathed in the crap!!!! Plus I was on 2 EPA super fund bases that have been closed down for clean up

My father died of complications relating to severe Parkinson's. Genetic testing revealed that his case was environmental. Looking back at his potential exposure history, it appears that Trichloroethylene (TCE) was present in several work environments such as a print shop job and an aerospace job.

Environmental consultants are now discovering that TCE vapor intrusion (contaminant VOCs entering homes and business from groundwater offgassing) is much more prevalent than previously thought. New testing techniques are confirming that indoor TCE exposure risks are dynamic and must be evaluated using temporal monitoring [].

This means that some people with Parkinson's may have been exposed to TCE in their own homes over many years. There is now a testing service that can monitor TCE exposures in homes and businesses on a 24hr basis. Most studies take from 2 to 5 days to get a realistic understanding of the exposure cycle if it exists.
