My work history is quite varied. Even though my dad was diagnosed with PD, my sisters don’t have it but I do. Putting genetics aside for a moment., I have a wide and wild career history.
It dates back probably 40+ years of unseen things I came in contact with. Early on, it was industrial chemicals for cleaning. ( nasty stuff) I was replacing shoes and work pants every 2-3 weeks due to acid contact. Forget about what I was inhaling. Next up was military microwave communication. You know, those big 70 ft satellite dishes. I worked on the converter units taking standard communication signals and bumping them up to 70gHz. ( think microwave oven to the stars in space) then, military microwave jamming technology. ( all back in the 70’s. ) no secrets here. Then down to Texas to drill oil. Field hazards abound. Then the last go around , GPS. I did that for almost 30 years. The clock started ticking on that as of Jan 1st week, 1980. I jumped in in 1983. The receivers are low power, strictly receive. But I was around them all the time. My first receiver was the size of a small refrigerator. My gps career brought me into places, few humans would go. ( another story) but as I said, could any or all of these things have affected my PD development or is it genetic? Still a mystery.
Any similar work histories to compare?
