Parkinson's related to toxics exposure

My husband was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. Some materials we have read indicate Parkinson's may be related to toxics exposure. My husband was a firefighter for 35 years and exposed to many different toxins doing his job. Does anyone have any information regarding firefighter related Parkinson's.
