Glyphosate is considered toxicologically harmful and presents potential association with human carcinogenesis and other chronic diseases, including mental and reproductive behaviors. The challenges to analyse and demonstrate its toxicity are likely due to its metal-chelating properties, the interference of organic compounds in the environment, and similarity with its by-products. Whereas there is a link with serious health and environmental problems, there is an absence of public health policies, which is probably due to the difficulties in detecting glyph... Read more
