What Is glyphosate?

  • Glyphosate was first registered for use in the U.S. in 1974.

  • Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the USA. People apply it in agriculture and forestry, on lawns and gardens, and for weeds in industrial areas. Some products containing glyphosate control aquatic plants.

  • Glyphosate is an herbicide applied to the leaves of plants to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. The sodium salt form of glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and ripen fruit.

  • Glyphosate binds tightly to soil. It can persist in soil for up to 6 months depending on the climate and the type of soil it is in. It is broken down by bacteria in the soil.
  • Glyphosate is not likely to get into groundwater because it binds tightly to soil. I

  • In one study, half the glyphosate in dead leaves broke down in 8 or 9 days. Another study found that some glyphosate was taken up by carrots and lettuce after the soil was treated with it.

What Products Contain glyphosate?

  • Glyphosate comes in many forms, including an acid and several salts. These can be either solids or an amber-colored liquid.
  • There are over 750 products containing glyphosate for sale in the United States.
  • Glyphosate binds tightly to soil. It can persist in soil for up to 6 months depending on the climate and the type of soil it is in. Glyphosate is broken down by bacteria in the soil.

How Does Glyphosate Work?

  • Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide, meaning it will kill most plants. It prevents the plants from making certain proteins that are needed for plant growth.

  • Glyphosate stops a specific enzyme pathway called the shikimic acid pathway which  is necessary for plants and some microorganisms.

  • The shikimate pathway (shikimic acid pathway) is a seven step metabolic route used by bacteria, fungi, algae, parasites and plants for the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan).

About Glyphosate In The Body

  • In humans, glyphosate does not easily pass through the skin. What is absorbed or ingested will pass through the body relatively quickly. The vast majority of glyphosate leaves the body in urine and feces without being changed into another chemical.

  • When high doses were administered to laboratory animals, some studies suggest that glyphosate has carcinogenic potential. Studies on cancer rates in people have provided conflicting results on whether the use of glyphosate containing products is associated with cancer. Some studies have associated glyphosate use with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

  • Glyphosate exposure has been linked to developmental and reproductive effects at high doses that were administered to rats repeatedly during pregnancy. These doses made the mother rats sick. The rat fetuses gained weight more slowly, and some fetuses had skeletal defects. These effects were not observed at lower doses.

  • Children have increased sensitivity specifically to glyphosate.

Health Risks and Glyphosate

  • Glyphosate has been linked to many serious health effects.
  • It is a powerful endocrine disruptor (your hormones).
  • It is genotoxic (damages your genes), neurotoxic (damages your nerves), hepatoxic (impairs your liver), and nephrotoxic (injures your kidneys).
  • There are indications that it may contribute to birth defects and abnormal fetal development.
  • As if this isnít bad enough, it has also been shown to be carcinogenic (causes cancer).

Symptoms of Glyphosate Poisoning

  • Blood in urine

  • Destruction of red blood cells

  • Kidney damage
  • Leukocytosis -  increase in the number of white cells in the blood, especially during an infection.
  • Metabolic acidosis
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Nausea
  • Nystagmus - vision condition of involuntary eye movement in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements, often resulting in reduced vision.
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Respiratory failure
  • Salivation
  • Stomach inflammation
