Reanalysis of Carcinogenicity Data Shows Glyphosate Can Cause Cancer in Experimental Animals

A review and reanalysis of 13 animal carcinogenicity studies shows that exposure of rats and mice to glyphosate caused a variety of tumours that differed by sex, species, strain and length of exposure. […]

Glyphosate Disrupts Gut Bacteria and Causes Liver and Kidney Damage in Rats

A new study confirms that glyphosate and Roundup at regulatory permitted and presumed safe doses inhibit the shikimic acid pathway in gut bacteria of rats, and also cause liver and kidney damage. […]

EU’s Risk Assessment of Herbicide-Tolerant GE Soybeans Falls Short

Current EU risk assessment practice for food and feed derived from herbicide-tolerant GE plants needs substantial improvement, otherwise health risks will be underestimated. […]

US EPA Ignored Substantial Scientific Evidence of Glyphosate’s Genotoxicity

This journal article shows that the US EPA disregarded substantial scientific evidence about glyphosate’s genotoxicity and supports the conclusions of the WHO-IARC that glyphosate is both genotoxic and probably carcinogenic to humans. […]

Adverse Effects on the Stomachs of Rats Fed with GM Corn

A recent feeding study has found adverse effects of a GM corn diet on the stomach lining of rats, which may have health implications. […]

Monsanto Ordered to Pay $289m as Jury Rules Glyphosate-based Herbicide Caused Man’s Cancer

Monsanto suffered a major blow with a jury ruling that the company was liable for a terminally ill man’s cancer, awarding him $289m in damages. […]

Global Glyphosate Pilot Study Shows Health Effects at ‘Safe’ Doses

A global pilot study on the health effects of glyphosate-based herbicides has shown disrupting effects on sexual development, genes and beneficial gut bacteria at doses considered safe by the US-EPA. […]

High Environmental Exposure to Glyphosate and Reproductive Health Impacts in Argentina

Research has found high glyphosate concentrations in and around an agricultural town in Argentina. At the same time, there have been increased frequencies of reproductive disorders in the local population. […]

GM Maize Approved in the EU Despite Concerns Raised by Member States

The European Food Safety Authority has been critiqued for repeatedly failing to address valid scientific concerns about a GM maize approved for food and feed in the EU, which has been found to cause kidney damage and bladder stones in rats. […]

Toxic Formulants and Heavy Metals in Glyphosate-based Herbicides

Formulations of glyphosate-based herbicides are found to be much more toxic on both plants and human cells than glyphosate alone. Toxic heavy metals such as arsenic are also found in these herbicides. […]
