(NaturalNews) Thousands of lambs and cattle across Europe are bearing dead or severely deformed offspring, and the mainstream media and health officials are blaming a "mystery virus" for this inexplicable and worsening phenomenon. The U.K's Telegraph reports that at least 74 farms across southern and eastern England, and many more in Germany and various other places across Europe, are being afflicted by what some are now calling the "Schmallenberg Virus."

Springtime is when many farmers' flocks and herds give birth, which is why cases of Schmallenberg Virus, named for its origination in Schmallenberg, Germany, are emerging at an increasingly rapid pace. The disease does not become apparent until a pregnant animal actually gives birth, upon which its offspring are either dead, or severely deformed with "fused limbs and twisted necks."

According to the Telegraph, nobody knows what the disease truly is or even whether or not it is actually a virus. And yet farms in England, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Holland, France, Italy and Luxembourg have all reported cases of it, with the majority of cases thus-far originating in England, Germany, Holland and France.

"We don't yet know the extent of the disease. We only find out the damage when sheep and cows give birth, and by then it's too late," said Alastair Mackintosh from the National Farmers Union (NFU) to the Telegraph. "This is a ticking time bomb."

Since the bulk of many farmers' herds still have yet to give birth, the spread of the virus is troubling, as it could put many of them out of business. Reports by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs indicate that some British farms have already lost up to 20 percent of their animals, which is a huge blow both to their businesses and to the food supply.

But the whole situation became highly suspicious after it was announced just days after the initial reports emerged that a group of virologists was meeting to discuss the fast-tracked development and release of a vaccine for this mystery disease. Nobody knows exactly what Schmallenberg Virus even is, we are told, but somehow scientists are able to quickly develop a vaccine for it? Yeah, right.

For all we know, these deformities and stillbirths are not the result of a virus at all, and are simply the hallmark of severe radiation poisoning caused by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear fallout. But this hypothesis is nowhere to be found in the media, of course, presumably because it is not a potentially profitable one -- you cannot vaccinate against radioactive iodine or cesium, after all.
