Detection of Glyphosate Residues in Animals and Humans
Exposure of mammals to glyphosate may cause loss of mitochondrial transmembrane potential and result in oxidative stress to liver and brain [27, 28]. Both apoptosis and autophagy are involved in glyphosate toxicity mechanisms  Case reports indicated that exposure to glyphosate was related to Parkinsonism [19, 30].

Conclusions Glyphosate residue could reach humans and animals through feed and excreted in urine. Presence of glyphosate in urine and its accumulation in animal tissues is alarming even at low concentrations. Unknown impacts of glyphosate on human and animal health warrants further investigations of glyphosate residues in vertebrates and other non-target organisms.
