Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide that was first introduced in 1974.
It is a non-selective herbicide that kills both weeds and crops. It is primarily used in agriculture to control the growth of weeds.
Glyphosate works by inhibiting an enzyme that is essential for plant growth, eventually causing the plant to die. It has been the subject of controversy in recent years due to concerns over its potential health and environmental impacts.
Very efficient herbicide
Many studies show that glyphosate can have negative effects on pregnancy and the unborn child.
Glyphosate has become virtually indispensable in agriculture because it causes very high-yield harvests
Danger unknown because studies that have investigated the dangers of glyphosate for humans have come to different conclusions
To date, the Agricultural Health Study has not been able to confirm any carcinogenic effect on humans
The benefits and dangers are difficult to understand because some proponents and opponents work with unfair methods and sometimes false accusations.
Farmers need significantly less time for preparing and tilling the fields
Some case control studies show a carcinogenic effect of glyphosate
