2,4-D Expected to be Sprayed on Millions of Acres of New GM Soy in the US

2,4-D, a volatile weed-killer linked to cancer and endocrine issues, will likely be sprayed on millions of acres of GM soybeans across the Midwest and South of the USA starting this year. […]

Compelling Link Between Glyphosate-based Herbicides and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Meta-analysis finds compelling evidence that people with high exposures to glyphosate-based herbicides have an increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. […]

Increasing Evidence of Detrimental Effects of Glyphosate-based Herbicides on Rats

Recent research found that exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides caused reproductive and developmental effects in rats, at ’safe’ dose levels. In other work, ‘generational toxicology’ of glyphosate was demonstrated; descendants of exposed rats developed prostate, kidney and ovarian diseases, obesity and birth abnormalities. […]

Widespread Damage from Dicamba Drives a Deep Wedge Between Farmers

Dicamba use in the U.S. has increased with GE dicamba-resistant crops, with a corresponding increase in damage to non-target plants. This is driving a deep wedge those farmers who use dicamba and those who don’t. […]

Herbicides Increase Antibiotic Resistance Evolution in Bacteria

Commonly used herbicides such as glyphosate and dicamba, also widely used with GM herbicide-resistant crops, can cause bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance by a factor of up to 100,000 times faster than occurs without the herbicide. […]

What Keeps GM Herbicide-Centric Agriculture in Place?

Weed control in the U.S. Midwest has become increasingly herbicide-centric due to the adoption of GM herbicide-tolerant crops.This study describes factors that hinder the movement away from the use of herbicide-tolerant technology towards integrated weed. […]

Glyphosate Shown to Increase Honeybee Susceptibility to Infections

A new study has shown that glyphosate, widely used with GM herbicide-resistant crops, damages the good bacteria in honeybee guts, making them more prone to deadly infections. […]

Damage from Dicamba Drift Grows Across the U.S.

Damage to crops from dicamba drift from GE dicamba-tolerant soybean fields in the US cover at least 10 states with state regulators struggling to keep up with the pace of complaints. […]

Dicamba Drift Threatens Natural Habitats and Species Across the US

Dicamba drift from the spraying of the herbicide in dicamba-tolerant GM soy farms in the US threatens natural habitats, putting endangered species of plants and animals at risk. […]

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. […]
