Validating the pepsi challenge
But don’t be mistaken – whatever has lead him here, his current path is deceptive, misleading, and irresponsible.Unless and until he can stick to the science and offer solid evidence for his extreme claims, he must be called to account for the way he is scaring people, and his tour of terror must end.” It’s been a roller coaster week for glyphosate.In layman’s terms, it should be treated as an emergency.This previously unknown organism is only visible under an electron microscope (36,000X), with an approximate size range equal to a medium size virus.You’d think he get on with dealing with that wouldn’t you?For more on the subject Biofortified has a nice piece entitled “Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence.” I also have some first hand knowledge I blogged about in “Long Term Glyphosate Use Effect on Wheat.” January 10, 2013 Rob Wallbridge aka @songberryfarm, an organic farmer, penned a post on his blog The Fanning Mill called Deconstructing Don Huber – A Tale of Two Talks. Huber and his claim of a new organism that causes trouble for seemingly every living thing on the planet in the nearly three years since I published this post? Kevin Folta who I’ve had the privelage of meeting over dinner while he was attending an event at Purdue late this summer. If it was real, we could have 300-fold coverage of its sequence. If you take the time to read the entirety of Folta’s post you’ll see he had Huber squirming in front of a very pro-Huber audience. Huber danced around the issue of his, as Folta says, “this novel not-quite-a-virus, not-quite-a-fungus plant-animal kingdom-hopping pathogen.” The claims of Dr. We’d get several hundred million ‘reads’ (small bits of data) that could be computationally assembled into a whole genome of his novel organism, if it actually existed.
If so, it would be the first such micro-fungus ever identified.
The pathogen is also found in the fungal causative agent of SDS (Fusarium solani fsp glycines).
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.
The pathogen may explain the escalating frequency of infertility and spontaneous abortions over the past few years in US cattle, dairy, swine, and horse operations.
