In the present study glyphosate residues were tested in urine and different organs of dairy cows as well as in urine of hares, rabbits and humans using ELISA and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). [] Key Result The correlation coefficients between ELISA and GC-MS were 0.96, 0.87, 0.97and 0.96 for cattle, human, and rabbit urine and organs, respectively. The recovery rate of glyphosate in spiked meat using ELISA was 91%.

Detection of glyphosate residues in companion animal feeds.
Glyphosate and aminomethylphosphonic acid are not detectable in human milk.
Evidence is provided that glyphosate and AMPA are not detectable in milk produced by women living in this region of the US Pacific Northwest and the results suggest that dietary glyphosate exposure is not a health concern for breastfed infants.
Determination of Glyphosate in human urine from farmers in Mato Grosso-BR
This study was conducted based on the evaluation of glyphosate levels present in rural workers in the region of Nova Mutum-MT. We analyzed 90 urine samples from farmers between 2017 and 2018. The
Effects of glyphosate residues and different concentrate feed proportions in dairy cow rations on hepatic gene expression, liver histology and biochemical blood parameters.
Overall, the tested GLY formulation was considered to have no toxic effects on the liver of dairy cows and total bilirubin blood concentration was significantly influenced by an interaction between GLY and CFP with temporarily elevated concentrations in GLYHC, whereas the biological relevance remained unclear.
Quantifiable urine glyphosate levels detected in 99% of the French population, with higher values in men, in younger people, and in farmers
The present results show a general contamination of the French population with glyphosate, and further contribute to the description of a widespread contamination in industrialized countries.
Detection of Glyphosate in Malformed Piglets
Glyphosate residues in different organs and tissues as lungs, liver, kidney, brain, gut wall and heart of malformed euthanized one-day-old Danish piglets were tested using ELISA to prove or exclude the role of glyphosate in malformations in piglets and other animals.
Glyphosate Residues in Groundwater, Drinking Water and Urine of Subsistence Farmers from Intensive Agriculture Localities: A Survey in Hopelchén, Campeche, Mexico
The glyphosate concentrations in groundwater and bottled drinking water indicate an exposure and excessive use of glyphosate in these agricultural communities, one of the first studies that reports glyphosate concentration levels in human urine and in the groundwater in the Yucatan Peninsula.
Efficiency control of dietary pesticide intake reduction by human biomonitoring.


Field Investigations of Glyphosate in Urine of Danish Dairy Cows
In the present study, thirty dairy cows from each of eight Danish dairy farms were investigated for excretion of glyphosate in urine. Blood serum parameters indicative of cytotoxicity as alkaline
Glyphosate biomonitoring for farmers and their families: results from the Farm Family Exposure Study.
It is advisable to minimize exposure to pesticides, and this study did identify specific practices that could be modified to reduce the potential for exposure.
Occurrence and fate of the herbicide glyphosate and its degradate aminomethylphosphonic acid in the atmosphere
This is the first report on the ambient levels of glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the United States, and its major degradation product, aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), in air and
Glyphosate Exposure in a Farmer’s Family
A more detailed following of agricultural practices and family exposures should be advocated together with information and recommendations, as oral or dermal absorptions could explain the differential pesticide excretions, even in family members at a distance from the fields.
Determination of glyphosate and (aminomethyl)phosphonic acid in soil, plant and animal matrices, and water by capillary gas chromatography with mass-selective detection.
A residue method for the determination of glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine, PMG] and its principal metabolite, (aminomethyl)phosphonic acid (AMPA), in soil, crops, animal products, and water
Differential Effects of Glyphosate and Roundup on Human Placental Cells and Aromatase
It is shown that glyphosate is toxic to human placental JEG3 cells within 18 hr with concentrations lower than those found with agricultural use, and this effect increases with concentration and time, and the presence of Roundup adjuvants enhances glyphosate bioavailability and/or bioaccumulation.
The results of presented study showed that chickens, which had consumed transgenic diet exhibited improved lipid stability of breast and thigh muscles, as indicated by TBARS values.
Urinary pesticide concentrations among children, mothers and fathers living in farm and non-farm households in iowa.
Urinary metabolite concentration was positively associated with pesticide dust concentration in the homes for all pesticides except atrazine in farm mothers; however, the associations were generally not significant.
Genetically modified soya bean in rabbit feeding: detection of DNA fragments and evaluation of metabolic effects by enzymatic analysis
The presence of DNA fragments in tissues from rabbits given genetically modified (GM) soya-bean meal (solvent extracted) was investigated by using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) approach, and no significant differences were detected concerning body weight, fresh organ weights and no sexual Differences were detected.
