Roundup : toxic to soil fungus at doses well below agricultural dilution - Velot & al. 2016 by Claire Robinson

Thursday 28 April 2016

/user/image/communiquePicture_793127.pngNew study raises concerns about soil health and casts further doubt on doctrine of substantial equivalence for GM Roundup Ready plants, reports Claire Robinson.

Roundup is toxic to a soil fungus at doses well below recommended agricultural dilutions, according to a new scientific study published in the journal Environmental Science and Pollution Research.

Swiss supermarkets stop sales of glyphosate over health concerns

Wednesday 10 June 2015

Swiss supermarket giants Coop and Migros have announced that they will no longer sell products that contain glyphosate, following the World Health Organization’s report stating that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. They have also announced that they will be exploring non-toxic alternative weed-killers.

Cardiotoxic electrophysiological effects of the herbicide Roundup® in rat and rabbit ventricular myocardium in vitro

Monday 8 December 2014


Roundup had toxic effects on the hearts of rabbits and rats in a new study led by Steeve Gress and conducted with Pr René Rouet and Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini at the University of Caen, France

The findings of the new study may provide an explanation for anecdotal reports from hunters of rabbits dying suddenly after crossing a Roundup-sprayed field, and from pet owners of dogs dying of seizures after exposure to Roundup-sprayed lawns – as well as cases of heart problems documented in people after Roundup poisoning.

An acute exposure to glyphosate-based herbicide alters aromatase levels in testis and sperm nuclear quality

Friday 13 June 2014

Estelle Cassault-Meyer, Steeve Gress, Gilles-Eric Séralini, Isabelle Galeraud-Denis, Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology, Volume 38, Issue 1, July 2014, pp. 131–140


• We investigated the effects of a glyphosate-based herbicide after an 8-day exposure of adult rats.
• We have shown a significant and differential expression of aromatase in testis.
• We have observed a diminution of mRNA expression of nuclear markers in spermatozoa.
• These results suggest changes in androgen/estrogen balance and in sperm nuclear quality.
• The repetition of exposures of this herbicide could alter the mammalian reproduction.

Environmental pollutants have intracellular effects that can be prevented, or cured in part, by precise medicinal plant extracts in two human cell lines. This appears to be mediated at least in part by the cytochromes P450 modulation.
