Roundup disrupts hormones
In future postings I will post more GMO stuff. Are you interested in these issues, also on GMO issues in Europe and China? please drop me a note. I think it’s an important issue and I don’t read much in Canadian and US mainstream publications on the GMO debate. Percy Schmeiser here and there but usually only a couple of lines.
CropChoice.com News Two new studies indicate that Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup, is a hormone-disruptor and is associated with birth defects in humans.
Farm families that applied pesticides to their crops in Minnesota were studied to see if their elevated exposure to pesticides caused birth defects in their children. The study found that two kinds of pesticides — fungicides and the herbicide Roundup — were linked to statistically significant increases in birth defects. Roundup was linked to a 3-fold increase in neurodevelopmental (attention deficit) disorders.
