It's Official: Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide Causes Birth Defects

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Genetic Engineering page, Millions Against Monsanto page, Health Issues page, and our Appetite for a Change page.


A new report by some top scientists has nailed it down, and Monsanto isn't going to be happy. The Agri-giant has built it's entire business model, including genetically modified (GMO) crops that dominate the US market, around its Roundup brand herbicide.

The last thing they want to admit is that it causes birth defects.

But that's just what a group of scientists from a diverse group - including Cambridge University, the King's College London School of Medicine, and the Institute of Biology, UNICAMP, São Paulo, Brazil - have found.

Key findings:

*Industry (including Monsanto) has known since the 1980's that glyphosate causes malformations in experimental animals at height doses.

*Industry has known since at least 1993 that these effects could also occur at lower and mid doses.

*The German government has known since at least 1998 that glyphosate causes malformations

*The EU Commission's expert scientific review panel knew in 1999 that glyphosate causes malformations
