Glyphosate is used extensively as a non-selective herbicide by both professional applicators and consumers and its use is likely to increase further as it is one of the first herbicides against which crops have been genetically modified to increase their tolerance. Commercial glyphosate-based formulations most commonly range from concentrates containing 41% or more glyphosate to 1% glyphosate formulations marketed for domestic use. They generally consist of an aqueous mixture of the… 
Surfactants in glyphosate products in Japan
Analysis of the surfactants present in five glyphosate products, including the currently available Roundup MaxloadR, revealed that this product does not contain POEA, but that it does contain the cationic quaternary ammonium-based surfactant, alkylbis(2-hydroxyethyl)methylammonium, and non-ionic surfACTant,Alkyl glucoside (Table 1).
Glyphosate-surfactant herbicide poisoning in domestic animals: an epidemiological survey
A retrospective analysis of all enquiries related to animal exposures to glyphosate-containing herbicides collected by the CAV from January 2006 to December 2012 was performed.
The Hemodynamic Effects of the Formulation of Glyphosate-Surfactant Herbicides
1.1 Epidemiology of Glyphosate poisoning in Taiwan and other countries Glyphosate ([N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine], CAS Number 1017-83-6) is the active ingredient of Roundup®, a common nonselective
Glyphosate in Agriculture: Environmental Persistence and Effects on Animals. A Review
Glyphosate, in the history of agriculture, is one of the most commonly used herbicide, due to its high effectiveness and low cost compared to other solutions. Glyphosate based herbicides (GBHs),

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.
Potential toxic effects of glyphosate and its commercial formulations below regulatory limits.
Glyphosate toxicity for animals
Glyphosate poses serious threat to multicellular organisms as well and its toxicological effects have been traced from lower invertebrates to higher vertebrates, including humans.
Co-Formulants in Glyphosate-Based Herbicides Disrupt Aromatase Activity in Human Cells below Toxic Levels
It was demonstrated for the first time that endocrine disruption by GBH could not only be due to the declared active ingredient but also to co-formulants, challenging the relevance of the acceptable daily intake (ADI) value for GBHs exposures, currently calculated from toxicity tests of the declaredactive ingredient alone.
Acute Poisoning with Herbicide Glyphosate
In this shown case poisoning was caused during applying herbicides without proper handling with the herbicide and also because of non-compliance of measures in safety and health at work.
