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. […]

GM Herbicide-Resistant Crops Have Adverse Impacts on Biodiversity

A technical report by the German, Austrian and Swiss governments on GM herbicide-resistant crops shows that they have not increased yields, but instead have increased herbicide use and have damaging impacts on biodiversity. […]

Glyphosate is Not Safe, Reveals New Review by Experts

This monograph documents the adverse human health and environmental impacts of glyphosate, whose use has gone up with the advent of glyphosate-tolerant GM crops, necessitating the call for a global phase-out of the world’s most widely used herbicide. […]

2,4-D and Dicamba Found to Have Lethal and Sub-lethal Effects on Lady Beetles

As weeds develop resistance to glyphosate, GM crops resistant to the 2,4-D and dicamba are poised to enter the market. However, these herbicides and the formulations containing them can cause lethal and sublethal effects on beneficial insects. […]

Co-Formulants in Glyphosate-based Herbicides Require Greater Scrutiny

There is mounting evidence that the co-formulants listed as “inert ingredients” in glyphosate-based herbicides can be just as if not more toxic than glyphosate alone. […]

IARC’s Classification of Glyphosate as “Probably Carcinogenic to Humans” Scientifically Robust

The WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer reiterates that there was enough evidence to classify glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”. […]

Statement of Concern on the World’s No.1 Herbicide, Glyphosate

Scientists have published a Statement of Concern on glyphosate, calling for urgent epidemiological studies, biomonitoring and toxicology studies with a focus on endocrine disruption, carcinogenicity and multigenerational effects. […]

Glyphosate is the World’s Most Used Herbicide in History

A new study confirms that glyphosate is the world’s most widely used herbicide in history, largely driven by the expansion of GE herbicide-tolerant crops. Quantifying the ecological and health impacts of this widespread use is thus increasingly urgent. […]

Conflict in the EU over the Safety of Glyphosate

Scientists specializing in cancer, epidemiology and public health have called for the rejection of EFSA’s “scientifically flawed” evaluation of glyphosate, as it runs counter to the IARC classification of glyphosate as probably carcinogenic to humans. […]

US EPA Revokes Approval of Dow’s

The US EPA has revoked its approval of Dow’s “Enlist Duo” herbicide cocktail of glyphosate and 2,4-D on receiving new information that there are likely to be synergistic effects, i.e, greater than expected toxicity of the two ingredients combined. […]
