      Recent research has found that the chemical trichloroethylene (TCE) can lead to Parkinson’s disease. TCE is a colorless liquid found in products and industries such as dry cleaning, metal degreasing, and cleaning wipes. Exposure to TCE can occur through product use or working in a factory where it is present, as well as through contaminated water, air, and soil. Symptoms of high TCE exposure include dizziness, headaches, confusion, nausea, and numbness; it can also harm the liver, kidney, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. TCE has been linked to a 500% increased risk of Parkinson’s disease due to its ability to cause mitochondrial dysfunction and the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons, which are sensitive to mitochondrial neurotoxicants. This research provides valuable information on how TCE exposure may affect the risk of Parkinson’s disease in certain populations.
