The Carrasco laboratory investigates glyphosate/Roundup herbicide and birth defects Carrasco's findings gave scientific credibility to reports of people in Argentina who claimed escalating rates of birth defects and cancers after the introduction of genetically modified soy, which is engineered to tolerate being sprayed with huge amounts of glyphosate.
In June 2011, Earth Open Source published a report by a group of international scientists, "Roundup and birth defects: Is the public being kept in the dark?" which examined the original approval documents for glyphosate and found that industry's own studies from as long ago as the 1980s-1990s (including some commissioned by Monsanto) showed that glyphosate causes birth defects in laboratory animals, specifically rabbits and rats.
Los hallazgos de Carrasco dieron credibilidad científica a los informes de personas en Argentina que afirmaba crecientes tasas de defectos de nacimiento y cáncer después de la introducción de la soja genéticamente modificada, diseñada para tolerar ser rociado con enormes cantidades de glifosato.
