Health Impacts of Glyphosate May Include Driving Antibiotic Resistance
Glyphosate resistant crops have led to intensification of glyphosate use, emergence of glyphosate-resistant weeds and microorganisms, changes in microbiomes and disease resistance, deteriorated plant and animal health, and increased antibiotic resistance.

Roundup Harms Soil Fungus At Far Below Permissible Doses
Research shows that Roundup caused metabolic disturbances in an important soil fungus at doses far below the recommended agricultural application rate, raising the possibility that herbicide residues may add toxic properties to a final GM plant product.

New research finds common herbicides cause antibiotic resistance
New research confirms that the active ingredients of the commonly used herbicides, RoundUp, Kamba and 2,4-D (glyphosate, dicamba and 2,4-D, respectively), each alone cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations well below label application rates.
