Droptine185, Welcome to HealingWell.

I don't know the answer to your question. Hopefully someone else will reply. However, I believe it's been proven that the incidence of Parkinson's in people exposed to jet fuel on aircraft carriers is higher. (I realize those are not exactly the same - diesel and jet fuel.) I just 'googled' "diesel fuel and Parkinson's" and found some interesting comments. Also interesting comments re: jet fuel if you 'google' "jet fuel and Parkinson's".

Hope this helps ... and best of luck.
