美国生物公司和中国某些转基因推广者长期声称转基因是安全的。实际上,转基因作物的可怕之处在于其隐伏危害的长期性和不确定性。

2011年2月11日,美国退役的军方科学家胡伯Huber博士给美国农业部长维尔萨克写信,指出:最近在转基因作物中发现一种新的病原体,是导致动物绝种(不孕或流产)的根源。联想到多年前在中国就已经出现的“杀精玉米”,以及先玉335玉米造成老鼠退化等现象,这一情况有必要引起中国有关方面的重视:

2011年2月中旬,美国《农场与牧场自由联盟》(Farm and Ranch Freedom)网站发布一条消息,标题为:《研究者:草甘膦终结者除草剂或抗草甘膦作物可能是动物流产与不育的根源》。这篇文章的主要内容是一位美国科学家最近写给美国农业部长的一封信。这位美国科学家名叫顿-M-胡伯(Don.M.Huber),他是美国高级土壤学科学家、农业部国家植物疾病恢复系统(NPDES)协调员、美国普渡大学名誉教授、退休上校。胡伯博士过去40年一直在专业机构和军事机构担任科学家,帮助对防备包括细菌战和疾病暴发在内的自然和人为生物威胁进行评估。



尊敬的维尔萨克部长:

由植物和动物高级科学家组成的小组最近提请我注意他们在电子显微镜下发现的一种病原体,它们看来对植物与动物的健康,以及可能亦对人类健康,造成显着影响。基于对有关数据的审查,这种新近发现的生物体在抗孟山都草甘磷“终结者”除草剂(RR)转基因大豆和玉米中普遍、非常严重,且浓度非常高,提出可能与抗草甘磷转基因作物的基因或更可能与草甘膦除草剂的存在联系。这种微生物看来是科学上的新发现!

这是高度敏感的信息,可能导致美国大豆和玉米出口市场的崩溃,并造成国内食品和饲料供应重大混乱。另一方面,这种新的生物体可能是已经造成的重大损害的罪魁祸首(见下文)。我和我的同事,因此将我们的调查加快谨慎进行,同时寻求美国农业部和其他机构协助查明病原体的来源、发病率、影响以及补救措施。

我们在这个早期阶段及时向美国农业部通知这些调查结果,特别是由于您延迟决定对抗草甘磷转基因苜蓿的批准。当然,如果孟山都草甘磷“终结者”除草剂转基因(RR)的基因,或者草甘膦除草剂(Roundup)本身是这一病原体的推动因素或协作因素,那么这样的批准可能是一场灾难。

根据目前的证据,这个时候合理的行动是将放松管制推迟到有足够数据证明这种病原体与孟山都抗草甘膦除草剂转基因作物种植系统无关,如果确实无关的话。

在过去的40年里,我一直在专业的和军事机构担任科学家,它们对防备包括细菌战和疾病暴发在内的自然和人为生物威胁组织有关的评估。根据我的这种经验,我相信面对的来自这种病原体的威胁是独特的以及高风险状态的。通俗地说,它应该被视为紧急情况。



这种前所未知的生物体,只有在电子显微镜(放大36,000 X倍)下才能够见到,它的尺寸近似等于一个中等大小的病毒。它能够自我复制,似乎是一种微型--真菌类--生物。如果这样的话,这将是被识别出来的第一个这样的显微真菌菌。有强烈的证据表明,这种传染性的病原体既导致植物的疾病,也会导致哺乳动物的疾病,这极其罕见。







在孟山都抗草甘膦除草剂转基因大豆饲料与转基因玉米中,在饲料加工蒸馏器的饲料中、在发酵了的饲料产品中、在猪的胃中残渣中,在猪与牛的胎盘中。感染了两种已经普遍存在两种疾病的转基因大豆与转基因玉米中这种生物体很多,它们是大豆中的猝死综合症(SDS)以及玉米的戈斯枯萎病(and Goss’ wilt),导致减产、降低农民收入。在SDS(腐皮镰刀菌)的真菌病原体中也发现有这种病原体。

实验室试验证实这种微生物经历自然流产和不孕症种类繁多牲畜中存在。在进行研究的初步结果也得以在临床中重现这样的流产。这些病原体有可能解释美国的牛、奶牛、猪和马养殖中过去数年不断上升的不孕和自然流产的原因。最近的一些报告提出小母牛不孕症超过20%,牛的自然流产则高达45%以上。

例如,喂食小麦的1000头怀孕的母牛有450头发生自然流产。同一时期,同一牛群喂食干草的另外1000头母牛则没有任何流产的情况。喂食怀孕母牛的小麦中确认有高浓度的上述病原体,它们种植时治理野草中使用了草甘膦除草剂。

总之,鉴于抗草甘磷作物检测出了高浓度的这种新的动物病原体,它与植物和动物疾病的关联性,已经达到流行病比率的程度,我们要求美国农业部参与一项多机构的调查,并且立即暂停对抗除草剂转基因作物的控制放松,直至草甘膦除草剂和/或抗草甘膦转基因作物与它们对农作物和畜牧生产和人类健康构成威胁的因果关系可以排除为止。

迫切需要研究草甘膦的使用的副作用是否可能促进了这种病原体的生长,或允许它们对植物和动物宿主造成更大的削弱性伤害。有良好的记录证明草甘膦促进土壤中病原体的发展以及知道它与40多种植物疾病的增加有牵连;它通过螯合对植物维持生命必须的营养物,破坏了植物的防御系统;从而也降低了动物对饲料营养素的生物利用度,这反过来又可以导致动物机能失调。为了正确地评估这些因素,我们要求查阅美国农业部有关的数据。

我本人对植物的病原体已经进行了50多年研究。我们现在看到一个植物和动物疾病和病症日益严重的前所未有的趋势。这种病原体可能对认识和解决这个问题有所帮助。它值得立即关注和投入大量资源,以避免我们的关键性的农业基础设施发生普遍性的崩溃。

信件原文:

Dear Secretary Vilsack:



A team of senior plant and animal scientists have recently brought to my attention the discovery of an electron microscopic pathogen that appears to significantly impact the health of plants, animals, and probably human beings. Based on a review of the data, it is widespread, very serious, and is in much higher concentrations in Roundup Ready (RR) soybeans and corn—suggesting a link with the RR gene or more likely the presence of Roundup. This organismappears NEW to science!



This is highly sensitive information that could result in a collapse of US soy and corn export markets and significant disruption of domestic food and feed supplies. On the other hand, this new organism may already be responsible for significant harm (see below). My colleagues and I are therefore moving our investigation forward with speed and discretion, and seek assistance from the USDA and other entities to identify the pathogen’s source, prevalence,implications, and remedies.



We are informing the USDA of our findings at this early stage, specifically due to your pending decision regarding approval of RR alfalfa. Naturally, if either the RR gene or Roundup itself is a promoter or co-factor of this pathogen, then such approval could be a calamity.



Based on the current evidence, the only reasonable action at this time would be to delay deregulation at least until sufficient data has exonerated the RR system, if it does.



For the past 40 years, I have been a scientist in the professional and military agencies that evaluate and prepare for natural and manmade biological threats, including germ warfare and disease outbreaks. Based on this experience, I believe the threat we are facing from this pathogen is unique and of a high risk status. In layman’s terms, it should be treated as an emergency.



A diverse set of researchers working on this problem have contributed various pieces of the puzzle, which together presents the following disturbing scenario: Unique Physical Properties



This previously unknown organism is only visible under an electron microscope (36,000X), with an approximate size range equal to a medium size virus. It is able to reproduce and appears to be a micro-fungal-like organism. If so, it would be the first such micro-fungus ever identified. There is strong evidence that this infectious agent promotes diseases of both plants and mammals, which is very rare.


It is found in high concentrations in Roundup Ready soybean meal and corn, distillers meal, fermentation feed products, pig stomach contents, and pig and cattle placentas.



The organism is prolific in plants infected with two pervasive diseases that are driving down yields and farmer income—sudden death syndrome (SDS) in soy, and Goss’ wilt in corn. 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. These include recent reports of infertility rates in dairy heifers of over 20%, and spontaneous abortions in cattle as high as 45%.



For example, 450 of 1,000 pregnant heifers fed wheatlege experienced spontaneous abortions. Over the same period, another 1,000 heifers from the same herd that were raised on hay had no abortions. High concentrations of the pathogen were confirmed on the wheatlege, which likely had been under weed management using glyphosate.



In summary, because of the high titer of this new animal pathogen in Roundup Ready crops, and its association with plant and animal diseases that are reaching epidemic proportions, we request USDA’s participation in a multi-agency investigation, and an immediate moratorium on the deregulation of RR crops until the causal/predisposing relationship with glyphosate and/or RR plants can be ruled out as a threat to crop and animal production and human health.



It is urgent to examine whether the side-effects of glyphosate use may have facilitated the growth of this pathogen, or allowed it to cause greater harm to weakened plant and animal hosts. It is well-documented that glyphosate promotes soil pathogens and is already implicated with the increase of more than 40 plant diseases; it dismantles plant defenses by chelating vital nutrients; and it reduces the bioavailability of nutrients in feed, which in turn can cause animal disorders. To properly evaluate these factors, we request access to the relevant USDA data.



I have studied plant pathogens for more than 50 years. We are now seeing an unprecedented trend of increasing plant and animal diseases and disorders. This pathogen may be instrumental to understanding and solving this problem. It deserves immediate attention with significant resources to avoid a general collapse of our critical agricultural infrastructure.



Sincerely,



COL (Ret.) Don M. Huber
