Could Monsanto's glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup be leading to the 
overgrowth of deadly bacteria in animals and humans consuming 
genetically-modified food contaminated with it?This question follows from a new 
study published in the journal Current Microbiology titled, "The Effect of 
Glyphosate on Potential Pathogens and Beneficial Members of Poultry Microbiota 
In Vitro," which found that the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup 
herbicide, known as glyphosate, negatively impacted the gastrointestinal 
bacteria of poultry in vitro. The researchers presented evidence that highly 
pathogenic bacteria resisted glyphosate, whereas beneficial bacteria were 
moderately to highly susceptible to it....
