From the National Toxic Network.
In Australia there are currently 566 herbicide products registered for use with glyphosate as the active ingredient. Its such a widely promoted product you can buy it in supermarkets along with your weekly shopping which gives everyone the impression it is harmless. Despite its extensive use, Australian regulators do little monitoring for glyphosate residues in our food, air, water and the wider environment, in fact, you would be hard pressed to find a laboratory in Australia that can test for low levels of glyphosate and its breakdown products in blood and urine.
For further information please refer to the Pesticide Action Network Asia-Pacific Monograph on Glyphosate http://www.panap.net.
