The herbicide "glyphosate" (the active ingredient in products such as "Roundup" and other weed control formulations) has been much in the news in today's world of social media and 24-hour news cycles. Are you hearing conflicting and confusing information about exposure, toxicity and its health effects as you try to stay abreast of the recent science?

Join Dr. Anthony Hay from Cornell University's Department of Microbiology and Dan Wixted of Cornell's Pesticide Management Education Program (PMEP) as they separate the wheat from the chaff. Their presentation will give an overview of current science-based discussions about exposure, toxicity and health effects. They will also provide some background on basic principles in toxicology and pesticide registration to round out your understanding of the current information concerning glyphosate based products.
