    Industrial Degreaser Linked to Parkinsonism Researchers Say - By Katherine Torres, occupationalhazards.com
    The other two individuals with Parkinson’s had at least 25 years of occupational exposure to TCE, including both inhalation and physical contact when they submerged their unprotected arms in TCE vats or touched machine parts that had been cleaned in the chemical.

    In addition, 14 others with long-term exposure to TCE had marked Parkinsonism symptoms, including significant reductions in fine motor hand movements compared to age-matched controls. Other individuals showed milder symptoms of the condition when compared to the controls.
