Junk Science on Glyphosate and (Roundup) Health Risks

news_views_icon“Debunking Pseudo Science “Lab Testing” Health Risk Claims about Glyphosate (Roundup),” by Academics Review.
On April 7, 2014 a television “documentary” in Australia reported that a study of 10 nursing mother’s milk reveapesticide_applyled the presence of glyphosate. This report referenced claims announced made by a “study” commissioned by anti-GMO activist group Moms Across America with “Sustainable Pulse,” an online “news service” published by anti-GMO campaigner and organic food entrepreneur Henry Rowlands. Here we provide the science and facts to consider. Background: Glyphosate is a relatively non-toxic broad-spectrum herbicide sold under the brand name Roundup that has been used for more than 40 years around homes, in landscapes and parks, and in agriculture. Glyphosate is far less toxic than alternative herbicides, has a broader spectrum of activity, and has fewer adverse effects on herbicide-tolerant transgenic plants than typical herbicides have on most crops. Since it is not persistent in the environment or groundwater and has low toxicity, glyphosate is generally considered to have less environmental impact than other herbicides. Read more.
