"The presence of glyphosate residues in both humans and animals could haul the entire population towards numerous health hazards, studying the impact of glyphosate residues on health is warranted and the global regulations for the use of glyphosate may have to be re-evaluated."

A newly released study published in Environmental & Analytical Toxicology highlights the chemical dangers associated with the GMO agricultural system, which relies heavily on the herbicide known as glyphosate (aka Roundup), and to which widespread exposure through the environment and our food is increasingly becoming inevitable.

The study titled, "Detection of Glyphosate in Animals and Humans," aimed to investigate glyphosate residues in different biological samples from humans and animals, in order to gain insight into the modern day exposure situation.

The following animal samples were collected:

Urine from cows kept in GM free areas 
Organs from slaughtered cows from conventional husbandry (gut wall, liver, kidney, lung and muscles) 
Urine samples from Danish cows 
Urine samples from hares and fattening rabbits

The following human samples were collected:

Urine samples from humans with conventional or organic diets 
Urine samples from healthy and chronically diseases humans
