I will be writing about Health & Nutrition, Organic Foods, Natural Healing, and some Great Healthy Recipes too!

We should also consider the rights and responsibilities of the Human Race in what we eat and how we live.

Since we are all different, I accept that no one thinks the same as anyone else, and that is fine. Some things are just "important" ...

So here we go ... here are some of my favorite ideas and findings that I hope will be interesting and helpful or even inspirational, for you as well.

New plant disease linked to GM crops and pesticides (abc.net.au)

US scientists claim to have discovered a dangerous new plant disease linked to genetically modified crops and the pesticides used on them.

The research, which is yet to be completed, suggests the pathogen could be the cause of recent widespread crop failure and miscarriages in livestock.

Emeritus Professor Don Huber from Perdue University says his research shows that animals fed on GM corn or soybeans may suffer serious health problems due to the pathogen.

“They’re finding anywhere from 20 per cent to as much as 55 per cent of those [animals] will miscarriage or spontaneously abort,” he said.

“It will kill a chicken embryo for instance in 24-48 hours.”

Professor Huber says it isn’t clear yet whether it is the GM crops or the use of the pesticide glyphosate that causes the pathogen. But he says his research shows both the pesticide and the GM crops also reduce the ability of plants to absorb nutrients from the soil that are necessary for animal health.
