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.

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.
