Groundbreaking Glyphosate-Microbiome Study


Glyphosate and the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup disrupt the gut microbiome by the same mechanism by which the chemical acts as a weedkiller, and these effects happen even at low doses that regulators claim to be safe, a newly published study has found.

The new study was conducted by an international team of scientists based in London, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, led by Dr Michael Antoniou of King’s College London, and with Dr. Robin Mesnage as first author. It is published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
