Florida Manatees Face New Threat: Rising Levels Of Glyphosate In Blood by Sustainable Pulse

A new study in Environment International found chronic exposure to increasing levels of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, may have consequences for manatees’ immune and renal systems.
A scientific study published last week concludes that Florida manatees are chronically exposed to glyphosate because of application of the herbicide to sugarcane and aquatic weeds. The study found glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and the world’s most-used weedkiller, in the plasma of 55.8% of the Florida manatees sampled. The concentration of glyphosate in plasma has increased from 2009 to 2019.
