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. […]

Health Impacts of Glyphosate May Include Driving Antibiotic Resistance

Glyphosate resistant crops have led to intensification of glyphosate use, emergence of glyphosate-resistant weeds and microorganisms, changes in microbiomes and disease resistance, deteriorated plant and animal health, and increased antibiotic resistance. […]

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. […]

Glyphosate-Resistant Weeds A Growing Major Problem Worldwide

The overuse of glyphosate has led to a global situation where glyphosate-resistant weeds are spreading rapidly. The worst infestations and greatest economic impact are seen in countries growing GM glyphosate-resistant crops. […]

Roundup Harms Soil Fungus At Far Below Permissible Doses

Research shows that Roundup caused metabolic disturbances in an important soil fungus at doses far below the recommended agricultural application rate, raising the possibility that herbicide residues may add toxic properties to a final GM plant product. […]

New research finds common herbicides cause antibiotic resistance

New research confirms that the active ingredients of the commonly used herbicides, RoundUp, Kamba and 2,4-D (glyphosate, dicamba and 2,4-D, respectively), each alone cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations well below label application rates. […]

States in the US Take Action As Dicamba Damage Grows

Dicamba, used in conjunction with GM dicamba-resistant crops, has caused widespread damage to crops not resistant to the herbicide in the USA, leading to states taking action which include a ban and other restrictions. […]

Biosafety and Socio-Economic Rrisks of GM 2,4-D Maize

This report highlights the biosafety and socio-economic risks of GM 2,4-D maize and stacked varieties currently field trialled in South Africa, including potential combinatorial effects. […]

Adverse Effects of Glyphosate on the Soil and Environment After 20 Years

After 20 years of intensive use, research finds that glyphosate and its primary metabolite AMPA are frequently detected in ground and surface waters and in some marine environments, with adverse effects on biological organisms and their functions. […]

Glyphosate Exposure and Increased Frequency of Cancer in Argentina

An exploratory ecological study detected increased frequency of cancer in association with high environmental exposure to glyphosate in an agricultural town in Argentina, where the herbicide is used in conjunction with mass cultivation of GM crops. […]
