The study found that a twin with a work exposure of six months or greater to the solvent trichloroethylene had six times the risk of Parkinson's disease as compared to his unexposed twin. Two other chlorinated solvents, PERC and carbon tetrachloride, tended toward significantly increased risk. But the data was not sufficiently strong to demonstrate a clear association with Parkinson's. They didn't find any risk with the other solvents (toluene, hexane, xylene) they tested.
This is disturbing since TCE is one of the biggest contaminants of our drinking water. It's detectable in up to 30% of U.S. drinking water. Ground water is filled with it because of the run off of the dry-cleaning industry.
