(NaturalNews) The recent upswing in crop failures and spontaneous animal miscarriages appears to be the result of a deadly new plant disease, suggests a prominent researcher. According to ongoing research being conducted by Emeritus Professor Don Huber from Purdue University in Indiana, this disease is likely a result of genetically-modified (GM) crops and the pesticides and herbicides used to grow them.

Reported on by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), the findings do not specifically pinpoint whether GMOs, their pesticides, or a combination of both is directly responsible for spawning the pathogen, but Huber says that, either way, GM systems are clearly a detriment to the environment, animal health, and likely human health.

"They're finding anywhere from 20 percent to as much as 55 percent of those [animals] will miscarriage or spontaneously abort," Huber told reporters, concerning farm animals that contact the deadly pathogen as a result of eating GM corn and soybeans. "[The pathogen] will kill a chicken embryo, for instance, in 24-48 hours."

Plants and crops are suffering the much the same fate, according to Huber, because GMOs and their chemicals are robbing soil of many nutrients, and preventing uptake of what few nutrients remain. This disruption of proper microbial balance leaves plants an easy target for many diseases that eventually kill them.

"If you have the [GM] gene present, there is a reduced efficiency for the plant to use those nutrients," added Huber. "When you put the glyphosate out then you have an additional factor to reduce the nutrient availability to the crop."

As NaturalNews reported previously, the increasing use of glyphosate, also known as Roundup, has led to skyrocketing cases of plant disease. And its many other negative effects on humans, animals, and the environment, though denied by Monsanto and others in the industry, cannot be denied based on available evidence (http://www.naturalnews.com/031138_Monsanto_R...).
