Safety Evaluation and Risk Assessment of the Herbicide Roundup and Its Active Ingredient, Glyphosate, for Humans

Original Discussion

Glyphosate has:

  • Low oral uptake (eating it results in low absorption)
  • Glyphosate has low dermal penetration (doesn't get through skin well)
  • Does not appear to bioaccumulate (you don't get more and more and more of it in your body)
  • No toxicity has been found at acute, chronic, or subchronic levels (immediate high dose, long term low dose, and long term really low dose)
  • Does not damage DNA (in vitro or in vivo)
  • No negative effects on developmental or reproductive
