Research on RoundUp's Toxicity--Part II

Daruich, Zirulnik, and Gimenez (with the Catedra de Bioquimica Molecular, Area Quimica Biologica, Facultad de Quimica, Bioquimica y Farmacia, Universidad Nacional de San Luis, Argentina) studied the effect of the herbicide glyphosate on enzymatic activity in pregnant rats and their fetuses.

They reported their findings in the March 2001 issue of Environmental Research.  According to these researchers, their "results suggest that maternal exposure to agrochemicals during pregnancy induces a variety of functional abnormalities in the specific activity of the enzymes in the studied organs of the pregnant rats and their fetuses."
