Rats fed GM Bt corn MON810 for only 90 days suffered serious damage to the surface mucous membranes of the jejunum (part of the small intestine), according to a new study from Egypt. (more…)
Glyphosate herbicide disrupts the development of the uterus of female rats when they are exposed for 7 days after birth, a new study by Argentine researchers shows.
The glyphosate herbicide caused cell proliferation and structural changes in the rats’ uterus.
Roundup is toxic to a soil fungus at doses well below recommended agricultural dilutions, according to a new scientific study published in the journal Environmental Science and Pollution Research. (more…)
A new ground-breaking peer-reviewed study has been published in Environmental Health Journal that shows the levels of glyphosate-based herbicides which the general public are commonly exposed to in drinking water, altered the gene function of over 4000 genes in the livers
Long-term exposure to leaves of MON810 GM Bt maize causes reduced growth and fertility in Daphnia magna (water flea), compared with the level of the non-GM parent variety (isoline), a new study has found. (more…)
The glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup is an endocrine (hormone) disruptor in adult male rats, a new Indian study shows. (more…)
This review shows that Glyphosate-based herbicides cause teratogenic, tumorigenic and hepatorenal effects. These effects could be explained by endocrine disruption and oxidative stress. Some effects were detected in the range of the recommended acceptable daily intake. (more…)
Scientists from Switzerland and Norway recently found in a unique study that the stress reactions of maize containing the DNA for the MON810 event are not predictable. The researchers found a large variation in the transgene expression and Bt protein content
The World Health Organisation’s cancer agency has declared the world’s most widely used weedkiller – glyphosate – a “probable human carcinogen” in a move that will alarm the agrochemical industry and amateur gardeners. (more…)
Research lead by a team from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand has found that commonly used herbicides, including the world’s most used herbicide Roundup, can cause bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics. (more…)
