Glyphosate Has No Endocrine Disrupting Properties, EFSA Peer Review Concludes

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published a review of the pesticide risk assessment of the potential endocrine disrupting properties of glyphosate.

The current assessment concluded that the weight of evidence indicates that glyphosate does not have endocrine disrupting properties through oestrogen, androgen, thyroid, or steroidogenesis mode of action based on a comprehensive database available in the toxicology area. The available ecotox studies did not contradict this conclusion.

Read the full conclusion in an open access paper published in the EFSA Journal.
