Roundup is a popular weed killer introduced in the 1970s that has been used for years in homes, businesses, parks, and public places across America to control specific species of invasive plants. In fact, Roundup is the most commonly used weed and grass killer in the world. Roundup contains Glyphosate, which prevents an enzyme known as EPSP synthase. This enzyme is required by plants in order to grow.
In response, farmers are breeding soybeans and corn to be glyphosate-resistant. These crops are called “Roundup Ready.” This specific genetic modification (GMO) allows farmers to use Roundup in their fields to kill weeds without harming their crops, which means that food is sprayed with Roundup. Most people don’t realize that the food they eat contains trace amounts of Roundup. In February 2016, the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they would begin testing food for Roundup.

This disease can begin at almost any place in the body. NHL is a type of blood cancer that develops in lymphocytes—the white blood cells found in the immune system.
The symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:
