Monsanto’s Roundup Residues in GM Food Cause Cell Damage (

The researchers studied toxicity mechanisms of four different Roundup
formulations in human cells. The formulations were diluted at minimal doses (up
to 100,000 times or more), but they still caused cell death within a few hours.
The researchers also noted membrane and DNA damages, and found the formulations
inhibit cell respiration.
