New Publication From Dr. Kim Harley Finds Childhood Exposure to Glyphosate and AMPA May Increase Risk of Liver and Cardiometabolic Disorders in Early Adulthood

March 6, 2023

A new study finds observed associations of glyphosate or AMPA exposure during childhood with liver inflammation and metabolic syndrome at young adulthood and agricultural glyphosate use during the prenatal period and/or childhood (from birth to age 5 years old) was associated with metabolic syndrome at 18 years old. This study suggests that glyphosate, the most commonly used herbicide worldwide, and AMPA, a degradation product of glyphosate and amino-phosphonates, may increase risk of liver inflammation and/or cardiometabolic disease in young adulthood.
