Effect of glyphosate on the mRNA expression of TGF beta, IL-6, and IL-1 in experimental rats

Glyphosate is a herbicide that was previously unknown of its toxic qualities and effects. Now, due to technological advancements, it is known to cause endocrine receptor blockade in humans. The residues of this herbicide may be deposited on soil, water, plants, and other natural areas and be consumed by humans. TGF beta is an inflammatory marker and is majorly involved in host defenses. Both IL-6 and IL-1 are pro-inflammatory cytokines markers with both immune and non-immune functions.
