Glyphosate itself is highly soluble in water and doesn't bind well (if at all) to tissue. Microbial degradation product: aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) - it has a very similar chemical structure to Glyphosate and exhibits the same properties Photodgradation products: sarcosine & glycine - non-essential amino acids metabolised by the body The ready-to-use formulation of Roundup is probably more toxic than its active ingredient.
