In a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, made public by the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, Dr. Don Huber, one of the nation's senior soil scientists, alerted the federal government to an organism that appears NEW to science: a microscopic pathogen that appears to significantly impact the health of plants, animals, and probably human beings. It is widespread, very serious, and is in much higher concentrations in Monsanto's genetically modified Roundup-Ready (RR) soybeans and corn - suggesting a link with the RR gene or more likely the presence of Roundup.
Linked with Outbreaks of Plant Disease * This newly discovered pathogen could result in a collapse of US soy and corn export markets and significant disruption of domestic food and feed supplies. * It appears to be the first micro-fungus ever identified. This infectious agent promotes diseases of both plants and mammals, which is very rare. * The organism is prolific in plants infected with sudden death syndrome (SDS) in soy, Goss' wilt in corn and is found in the fungal causative agent of SDS (Fusarium solon fop glycines). Implicated in Animal Reproductive Failure * Laboratory tests have confirmed the presence of this organism in a wide variety of livestock that have experienced spontaneous abortions and infertility. Preliminary results from ongoing research have also been able to reproduce abortions in a clinical setting.
