Guest: Prof Don Huber – Is Biological Warfare to Blame For Our Citrus Blight?

Is Biological Warfare to Blame For Our Citrus Blight – Circa 2013

Is Biological Warfare to Blame For Our Citrus Blight – We’re told that the Asian Citrus Psyllid has been destroying citrus groves in Florida, California, Texas and Arizona.  While scientists work on ways to combat this pest, orange juice and other citrus products are now coming from Brazil and China!

I have been following this story for years.  We’ve watched as members of the citrus industry and the University of Florida have pushed forward their plans to genetically modify oranges.

The billion dollar citrus industry in the United States is in trouble.  Your citrus trees affected by citrus greening are being wiped out.  In addition, crop production is at record lows. You and I will be paying the price at the grocery store.

From the Food & Travel Nation Interview Archives:  I spoke with Professor Don Huber about the sources of the Citrus Blight problem.  The obvious answer is that pesky Asian Citrus Psyllid.  A USDA report, co-authored by Professor Huber is shocking. But it turns out that the psyllid has a co-conspirator.  As professor Huber describes, the pest may have been intentionally introduced into the United States.  This is a a biological warfare and economic sabotage story that you MUST hear to  believe.
