Glyphosphate: A Common Weed Killer Sprayed on Your Food Linked to Severe Birth Defects
I recently read this journal article about glyphosphate based herbicides titled, "Glyphosate-Based Herbicides Produce Teratogenic Effects on Vertebrates by Impairing Retinoic Acid Signaling." It reports a link between the common crop weed killer used in conjunction with glyphosphate resistant GMO crops and severe cranial birth defects. It is an interesting read and may make you wonder about what you ate for lunch.
