A:Expert Answer

The quick answer for regulatory studies is 90 days for GMO safety and 26 months for glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup agricultural herbicides) safety. The lengths of these studies are assessed and set by independent scientific bodies globally, in order to ensure product developers generate comprehensive data to appropriately determine the long-term safety of new products.
