Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses known to compete with commercial crops grown around the globe. Round up(R) a trademark of Monsanto is probably carcinogenic Occupational exposure to agriculture pesticide and non-Hodgkin lymphoma has been established[1][2] In otherhand AMPA a metabolite of this inhibits certain cancer line[3] Furthermore glyphosate and genistein a compound of soja have additive estrogenic effect[4]
