- Three peer-reviewed accepted manuscripts from the pilot phase of the Global Glyphosate Study are available online today (May 16th). The papers will be published in the prestigious scientific journal Environmental Health later in May.
- The pilot study was a single-dose study on glyphosate based herbicides (GBHs) in rats, using the the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s acceptable daily dietary exposure level of glyphosate (cRfD) – 1.75 mg/kg/day. (a single-dose study means that the same concentration was given to the rats daily over a 3 month period).
