Roundup Toxicity May Impact Male Fertility: Study

Male Fertility

Story at-a-glance -

  • Research is mounting that an environmental toxicant, especially an endocrine-disrupting chemical such as glyphosate in Roundup, may be involved in increasing rates of male infertility
  • Roundup exposure induced cell death in Sertoli cells (required for male sexual development and sperm health) in rat testis
  • The exposure was a low dose (36 parts per million), which is well within the US Environmental Protection Agency’s food safety exposure levels
