The effects of glyphosate? Even more dramatic about future generations
On the toxicity of glyphosate, for several years now, more than one study has denied the reassuring theories of the industries and, unfortunately, of part of the European institutions. But now a research on what is one of the most used pesticides in the world has focused on generational actions, that is, on the effects that can be transmitted from generation to generation. A Washington State University study just published in Nature, conducted on pregnant female rats found negligible impacts of glyphosate on the directly exposed generation, but dramatic increases in pathologies in the offspring of subsequent generations. The transgenerational pathologies observed include prostatic pathologies, obesity, pathologist for the kidneys, ovaries and during childbirth.
"We propose that glyphosate may induce the transgenerational inheritance of disease and germline epimutations (eg sperm). Observations suggest that the generational toxicology of glyphosate should be considered in the etiology of the disease of future generations, "write the researchers.
