Glyphosate Residues Higher in People with Chronic Liver Disease

Glyphosate residues have been found to be significantly higher in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis than in patients with a healthier liver, providing an observational link between the herbicide exposure and liver disease in humans. […]

Human Exposure to Glyphosate Increased 500 percent Since GM Crop Introduction in the US

A study has found that human exposure to glyphosate through foods has increased approximately 500% over 23 years since the introduction of GM glyphosate-tolerant crops in the US. […]

Risks of Glyphosate Residues in Food and the Environment

A review of recent literature has found that glyphosate can persist in the environment and that chronic glyphosate exposure even at low concentrations can pose a risk to human health. […]

GM Food But An Ongoing Experiment on Consumers

This report concludes that GM food is but an ongoing experiment on consumers as the potential risks have not been fully investigated and the scientific evidence is inconsistent, leaving more questions than answers. […]

Systems Biology Study Finds GMOs not “substantially equivalent”

A novel systems biology study shows that GM soy is not “substantially equivalent” to conventional soy, and that the US FDA’s regulatory standard of “substantial equivalence” to assess the safety of GM foods is “outdated and unscientific”. […]

Scientific Review Finds Lack of Evidence on GM Food Safety

A review of studies on the health impacts of GM food on rats finds a serious lack of evidence on safety. Not only are there no published studies for most of the approved GM crops but those that have been conducted are flawed. […]

Séralini Group Republishes Study, Confirms Results

The chronic toxicity study on the herbicide Roundup and GM maize NK603 has been republished. The study found severe liver and kidney damage and hormonal disturbances, such as mammary tumours, in rats fed the GM maize and low levels of Roundup. […]

“Extreme levels” of Roundup in GM soybeans

Levels of Roundup so high that even Monsanto calls them “extreme” now appear to be the norm for GM soybeans, recent research shows. […]

High Residues of Glyphosate Accumulate in Roundup Ready Soybeans

Research has demonstrated that Roundup Ready GM-soy may accumulate high residue levels of glyphosate and its breakdown product. It also showed that different agricultural practices may result in a markedly different nutritional composition of soybeans. […]

Early Warning on Food Safety Issues – How regulators got it wrong on dsRNA

This TWN Biosafety Briefing discusses how changing the nature, kind and quantity of particular regulatory-RNA molecules through genetic engineering can create unique risks. […]
