Last year, a non-profit organization in Britain called the “Earth Open Source” released many documented studies about health risks associated with glyphosate in Roundup such as birth defect, reproduction failure and cancer.
However glyphosate is approved and regulated by both FDA and EPA and in an interview the “Earth Open Source” mentioned that the approval of glyphosate by DFA and EPA is deeply unreliable and flawed.
Glyphosate is Monsanto’s top selling herbicide used in both gardens and farmers in the United States and almost 89% of corn and soy produced in the US are genetically modified.
-In many independent studies glyphosate has been related to birth defects, reproduction failure and deformities in laboratory animal. However the impact of glyphosate on humans is unclear since there hasn’t been any study about its side effect directly on humans.
