    Dr Varayoud: Glyphosate Herbicide Disrupts Uterus Development in Female Rats

Dr Varayoud: Glyphosate Herbicide Disrupts Uterus Development in Female Rats

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.

    Dr Larramendy: Glyphosate and Dicamba Formulations Damage Toad Larvae DNA

Dr Larramendy: Glyphosate and Dicamba Formulations Damage Toad Larvae DNA

A new study by Argentine researchers (see abstract below) shows that dicamba and glyphosate herbicide formulations cause genetic damage in the larvae of a species of toad, Rhinella arenarum, when used separately.
Genotoxic effect of a binary mixture of dicamba-

Dr Holderbaum: Long-Term Exposure to GM Maize Reduces Growth and Fertility of Water Fleas

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…)

Dr Farina: Sub-lethal Doses of Glyphosate affect Honeybee Navigation

This study shows it’s not only neonicotinoid insecticides that are destroying honeybees’ ability to navigate and therefore contributing to colony collapse. (more…)

Dr. Lima: Glyphosate increases growth of pathogenic bacteria

This new study published in the Brazilian Journal of Microbiology indicates that the world’s most widely used herbicide - glyphosate - may be contributing to the enhanced growth of the pathogenic bacteria P. aeruginosa in our environment. (more…)

Dr Herbert: Field-Realistic Doses of Glyphosate Lead to Honeybee Starvation

A new study published in the Journal of Experimental Biology establishes a link between the world’s most sold herbicide Roundup and the dramatic decline in honeybee (Apis mellifera) populations in North American and Europe that lead to the coining of the

Dr Cattani: Roundup Causes Toxic Damage to Rat Brains

This new Brazilian study reveals a hitherto unknown mechanism behind how the glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide harms rat brains. The results demonstrated that Roundup might lead to excessive extracellular glutamate levels and consequently to glutamate excitotoxicity and oxidative stress in rat

Dr Agapito-Tenfen: Bt MON810 GM Maize Not Substanially Equivalent to Non-GM Maize

This Brazilian study showed differences between conventional maize and a Monsanto transgenic maize MON810, of the Bt type (modified to produce insecticidal toxins and kill the caterpillars that eat it). Comparison of the GM and non-GM plants revealed a total
