Time Code Lists (1&2) are posted as comments on this page.
2:35 HR 4432 Congressional Hearing – Who was questioning safety?
3:11 Anthony Samsel: FDA claiming they have never heard of any potential problems.
4:33 Dr. Seneff – No longer substantially equivalent
5:46 Dr. Huber’s thoughts about Dicamba
7:43 For the layperson – Dicamba has not been tested for safety
Serious toxicological consequences.
9:04 Cascade of effects, “self delusion based on fossil Science, more than one effect. These systems are intimately tied together to influence the outcome.”
Time Code List #2
59:03 Anthony Samsel – Field and lab experiments within the past two years looking at GE traits in 33 variety GMO corn
1:00:26 Looking at how these plants grown in the same field/time, can see what the genes are doing in the uptake of the minerals
1:01:11 Glyphosate and Manganese (cobalt, zine, iron)
1:01:28 It is the minerals that influence the expression of the genes and how those genes are going to express the proteins, the fatty acids. Nobody has ever done this before.
1:02:00 These crops, they knew were deficient in manganese and zine…and trace minerals
1:02:32 Minerals are like the keys in the engine
1:02:50 So their (biotech) results are skewed. They are lying about the substantial equivalence of GMO crops
1:03:10 When you start looking at the ancient varieties…I started farming back in the 1960’s, driving a tracker at 15 years old, I’m still farming….

January 2011: Letter to USDA Secretary Vilsack from Dr. Huber – Roundup May Be Causing Animal Miscarriages and Infertility
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.
