Pleiotropic Outcomes of Glyphosate Exposure: From Organ Damage to Effects on Inflammation, Cancer, Reproduction and Development
A particular focus on glyphosate's potential to induce inflammation, DNA damage and alterations in gene expression profiles as well as adverse effects on reproduction and development is focused on.
Effects of Glyphosate Exposure on Reproductive Health: A Systematic Review of Human, Animal and In-Vitro Studies
The evidence is sufficient to, under the precautionary principle, define policies to prevent exposure of women, their partners, and their children to glyphosate, and shows strong experimental evidence, in animal models and in vitro studies, of glyphosate toxicity in reproduction and development.
Glyphosate vs. Glyphosate-Based Herbicides Exposure: A Review on Their Toxicity
Glyphosate-based herbicide has been the first choice for weed management worldwide since the 1970s, mainly due to its efficacy and reported low toxicity, which contributed to its high acceptance.
Glyphosate Use, Toxicity and Occurrence in Food
This work aims to review the glyphosate use, toxicity and occurrence in diverse food samples, which, in certain cases, occurs at violative levels.
Glyphosate-based herbicides: evidence of immune-endocrine-microbiome alteration

Potential toxic effects of glyphosate and its commercial formulations below regulatory limits.

Assessment of the health risks associated with glyphosate are more complicated than suggested by acute toxicity data that relate primarily to accidental high-rate exposure.

The study demonstrates that the toxic effect of GBH is primarily due to the use of formulants, and suggests that GP is relatively safe and a new approach for the assessment of toxicity should be made.
Cancer Incidence among Glyphosate-Exposed Pesticide Applicators in the Agricultural Health Study
Glyphosate exposure was not associated with cancer incidence overall or with most of the cancer subtypes the authors studied, but there was a suggested association with multiple myeloma incidence that should be followed up as more cases occur in the AHS.
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.
Glyphosate Commercial Formulation Causes Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Effects, and Apoptosis on Human Cells
The results show that G formulation had toxic effects while no effects were found with acid glyphosate and AMPA treatments, and confirm that G formulations have adjuvants working together with the active ingredient and causing toxic effects that are not seen with Acid glyphosate.
The need for independent research on the health effects of glyphosate-based herbicides
The aim of the Ramazzini Institute project is to explore comprehensively the effects of exposures to glyphosate-based herbicides at current real-world levels on several toxicological endpoints, including carcinogenicity, long-term toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disrupting effects, prenatal developmental toxicity, the microbiome and multi-generational effects.
