Emerging literature suggests that in utero exposure to glyphosate and glyphosate based herbicides may effect reproduction and may adversely impact developing fetuses. This study aims to quantify how much glyphosate pregnant women are exposed to and how that exposure is occurring.

Pilot study to evaluate effect of organic diet during pregnancy

Organic Dietary Intervention

Funded by ITHS

Current research shows that organic food consumption significantly reduces pesticide exposure; however, does this reduced exposure lead to a measurable health benefit? Our pilot study of the effects of an organic diet during pregnancy is the first step we are taking toward answering this question.
