Dr Huber Spoke at the WAPF conference this past wk. If there is one presentation to buy this is the one. Dr. Hubers information is startling. If you have been following this story linking glyphosate and a new pathogen you will know the importance if his work. Here are a few tid bits; The 'New' Pathogen is close to being sequenced, maybe within the month more information on this story. The US has dipped 25% in human fertility rate in the last 5 years. 93% of US females have this pathogen in their system. It appears the pathogen will be a prion or prion like. The pathogen is the first of its kind in its ability to cross between plant, animal and humans with the same destructive force harming fertility of its host. It is directly associated with glyphosate and is harbored in the soil and our food chain.
One paraphrase from the talk '...we are on the brink of a calamity...risk of loosing an entire generation....'
I think the link to buy the talk by Dr Huber will be posted soon on the WAPF.org site.
Dr. Huber is a retired Colonel, 13 years Joint Chiefs of Staff (two administrations), 40 year Purdue University pathologist emeritus
From Huber's summary: "The introduction of such an intense mineral chelator as glyphosate into the food chain through accumulation in feed, forage, and food, and root exudation into ground water, could pose significant health concerns for animals and humans and needs further evaluation."
After trucking across the high plains for five hours, and casting my eyes over perhaps 100,000 acres or more of winter’s still deathly gray industrial farmland, I came face to face with the newly famous Dr. Don M. Huber in the cave-dark meeting room of the Black Horse Inn just outside the American Heartland village of Creighton, Nebraska.
On the morning of March 24, along with about 80 farmers and Extension agents, I listened as Huber discoursed with erudition and eloquence upon industrial farming practices that may be impacting nearly every morsel of food produced on the planet, and that subsequently may also be having staggeringly serious health consequences for plants, animals, and human beings.
Huber is emeritus soil scientist of Purdue University, and a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served as an intelligence analyst, for 41 years, active and reserves. In Nebraska, he stood ramrod straight for three hours with no notes and spoke with an astonishing depth and range of knowledge on crucial, controversial matters of soil science, genetic engineering, and the profound impact of the widely used herbicide glyphosate upon soil and plants, and ultimately upon the health of animals and human beings.

Plant diseases are a major limitation to improved production efficiency and crop quality as they reduce nutrient availability, uptake, distribution, or utilization by the plant. Disease symptoms frequently reflect the altered nutritional status of the plant and it is frequently difficult to clearly distinguish between the biotic and abiotic factors involved.
