The authors of this scientific research report are from the UK, Brazil, Ireland, and the US.

From the summary

This report provides a comprehensive review ofthe peer-reviewed scientfic literature, documentingthe serious health hazards posed by glyphosate andRoundup herbicide formulations. On the basis of this evidence, we call on the Commission to cancelits delay in reviewing glyphosate and to arrange anobjective review of the pesticide. Te review musttake into account the full range of independentscientific literature, as demanded by the newpesticides regulation, and should be started as soonas the new data requirements are in place this year.In the meantime, the Commission should use itspowers to withdraw glyphosate and Roundup from the market.
