Below are only a few of the studies and reviews that have been done on the safety of glyphosate and GM food.
Three new reviews on glyphosate and human safety published within the last year are available online from the publisher’s website:
• Pamela J. Mink, Jack S. Mandel, Bonnielin K. Sceurman, Jessica I. Lundin. Epidemiologic studies of glyphosate and cancer: A review.
• Pamela J. Mink, Jack S. Mandel, Jessica I. Lundin, Bonnielin K. Sceurman. Epidemiologic Studies of Glyphosate and Non-Cancer Health Outcomes: A Review.
• Amy Lavin Williams, Rebecca E. Watson, John M. DeSesso. Developmental and Reproductive Outcomes in Humans and Animals After Glyphosate Exposure: A Critical Analysis.
The most recent review of glyphosate was conducted by the European Commission’s Health and Consumer Protection Directorate-General in 2002. Compounds are reviewed every 10 years and a review is in progress now.
Other reviews and studies include:
WHO/FAO. (2004) Pesticides residues in food — 2004.
World Health Organization: Environmental Health Criteria 159: Glyphosate (1994)
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: Reregistration Eligibility Decision: Glyphosate (September 1993). There is also a shorter fact sheet.
Reviews of long term studies by scientists, physicians, and regulators have reached the conclusion that GM crops are safe.
