    This fact sheet answers the most frequently asked health questions (FAQs) about parathion. For more information, call the CDC Information Center at 1-800-232-4636. This fact sheet is one in a series of summaries about hazardous substances and their health effects. It’s important you understand this information because this substance may harm you. The effects of exposure to any hazardous substance depend on the dose, the duration, how you are exposed, personal traits and habits, and whether other chemicals are present. HIGHLIGHTS: Parathion is an organophosphorus pesticide no longer used or produced in the United States. Therefore, exposure of the general population or workers is unlikely. Parathion affects the function of the nervous system and exposure to high amounts can cause death. Parathion has been found in at least 20 of the 1,832 current and former National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). tfacts205.pdf
