Researcher: Roundup May Be Causing Miscarriages in Cattle, Humans

In a chilling article, appearing in the Safe Lawns Blog, quotes Dr. Don Huber, professor emeritus at Purdue University in a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, describes what he believes is a link between Round Up and miscarriages in cattle and humans.  Huber states that a new pathogen is appearing in the soil and it's appearance and pattern of population, suggests to him an interrelation between it and Round Up and the pathogen and miscarriages as human mothers in at least one study also had this pathogen in their bodies, suggesting that it had come via our food system.  

At any rate, until research susses it out one way or the other, Dr. Huber asks Vilsack to use emergency powers and stop any expansion of Round Up use until the thing can be settled.

Sadly, our government will wait 20 years until the harm is established and then declare the barn door had not ought to have been opened.  Write your Congressional representatives and your President.
