soy products are used to make meat and dairy products, and the soybeans used in the production of soybean products are genetically engineered to be able to withstand high levels of herbicides.
But there are a number of concerns surrounding the use of the herbicide glyphosate, which is a powerful herbicide that is widely used to kill weeds.
A new report from the University of Arizona says the herbicides used in soybeans have been linked to cancers, infertility, birth defects and neurological problems in laboratory animals.
“The findings indicate that a range of possible carcinogenic and reproductive effects, including birth defects, are possible if glyphosate is used in large doses in large quantities,” the researchers wrote.
The report is based on studies that have shown glyphosate to be a probable carcinogen in animals and human health risks in humans.
The study authors point to “several epidemiological studies in humans, in which the use and carcinogenicity of glyphosate were assessed.”
The study also found that “there is an association between the use or consumption of glyphosate and the occurrence of tumors and malignant tumors in humans.”
The researchers concluded that “the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate-containing products is still unclear.”
Soy products have long been used in Asia and the Americas, and some have been found to be high in glyphosate residues.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that glyphosate is “probably” the most widely used herbicide worldwide.
But the EPA has repeatedly said that glyphosate residues in soy products have “substantial” levels.
Soy products are now being found in products from McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Taco Bell and more.
Some studies have linked soy products to cancer.
In 2011, a report from researchers at the University’s Department of Environmental Science and Engineering concluded that the use “of soy as a source of food for humans has substantial health risks, including, but not limited to, birth defect, reproductive disorders, neurological disorders and developmental disabilities.”
The FDA has also found glyphosate residues on some soy products, but has yet to require the companies to remove them.
The FDA is currently investigating whether any of the products contained glyphosate residue.
