Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: Eye contact may cause discomfort, tearing, swelling, redness, and blurred vision. SKIN: This substance is not expected to cause prolonged or significant skin irritation. If absorbed through the skin, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs. This product is not expected to cause allergic skin reaction. INGESTION: Ingestion may produce irritation of the digestive tract as demonstrated by signs and symptoms of mouth membrane irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.INHALATION: Overexposure to spray mist may result in minor irritation of the upper respiratory tract.
Chronic Health Effects: Data from glyphosate laboratory toxicology studies were conducted with a formulation comprised of 62% isopropylamine salt of glyphosate (MON 0139). Rabbits - 3 week dermal: Repeated daily primarily resulted in slight skin irritation. Dogs - 6 month feeding: Only slight body weight changes noted. Rats - 90 day feeding: No treatment related effects. Mice - 90 day feeding: Decreased weight gains at the high dose level group animals.NEUROTOXICITY: GLYPHOSATE: There was no evidence of nervous system toxicity, including delayed induced peripheral neuropathy in chickens (repeated oral dosing) or cholinesterase inhibition in rats (single oral dosing).TERATOGENICITY: GLYPHOSATE: No evidence of teratogenic effects. Results of rat and rabbit teratology studies indicate that no birth defects were noted. This included dose levels of glyphosate that were maternally toxic.REPRODUCTIVE TOXIN: GLYPHOSATE: No evidence of adverse reproductive effects. Glyphosate was fed continuously to rats at very high dose levels for 2 successive generations. Toxicity was reported in offspring from the high dose, a level which also produced adverse effects on the mothers. In a 3-generation study conducted at lower dose levels, no effects were seen on the ability of male or female rats to reproduce.MUTAGENICITY: GLYPHOSATE: Glyphosate has not produced any genetic changes in various mutagenicity tests involving animals and animal or bacterial cells.
Carcinogenicity: Glyphosate is not considered to be a carcinogen. Glyphosate did not produce tumors in any of the long-term toxicology studies. EPA has classified glyphosate in category ***E*** (Evidence of non-carcinogenicity for humans).
First Aid: EYES: If in eyes, immediately flush with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. SKIN: No first aid procedures are required.
