Dear Nancy and Stephanie,
Nancy, I have also noticed the increasing number of race horses that die of heart failure and I have been aware of the teenagers and even younger children that are reported to die of heart failure. I never heard of these problems on children or race horses before the late 1990s and the problem has appeared to have increased significantly in race horses (and children) since 2007. A child born between 1997 and 2001 the first really bad birth defect in animals period, would be from 13 to 17 now. If you add 1994 through 1997, they would be from 13 to 20, but of course, the deaths have been going on for several years, so children that died in their early teens didn't reach 20 years of age - does that make sense?
Did either of you know that a lot of race horse foals have died or had to be put down because of underbite, other facial malformations, limb and other malformations between 1995 and present - same time period and same birth defects as on other grazing animals. Also, have you noticed the amazing number of race horses that suddenly have their leg bones break during the race? Brittle bones from disrupted calcium and other minerals? I will have to look up the problems with thyroid hormone disruption on horse foals. Canadian horse ranchers in Western Canada lost up to 80% of their foals in the late 1990s.
One horse rancher here in our county had 11 of 12 foals born with birth defects in spring of 1997. They moved their horses to Oklahoma and had all normal foals in spring of 1998. That indicated to me that the Chlorothalonil and (now I know) the Glyphosate that was suddenly used in very high amounts in states directly upwind of our mountain valley, beginning in 1994 and reaching a peak in 1997-1999 was responsible for the birth defects on the foals. It was reported to me that over 50 foals were shot by the owners in spring of 2001 here in our county because they were born with underbite.
It was reported in the news media that there was a world wide epidemic of underbite and cleft palate on human children in 2001. It was blamed on white bread or something like that. Since 2007, the dentists here in our area tell me that a large number of children are being born with underdeveloped lower jaw and chin and not so many with underbite. I call underdeveloped lower jaw and chin classic retroevolution - if you don't get this, ask me what I mean.
I have necropsied between 20 and 25 grazing animals of several species since 1997, almost all under 2 years old, on which the animal died of a ruptured blood vessel in the thoracic cavity and consequently drown in their own blood. The animals that experience this problem always have an enlarged right heart ventricle and usually have lung damage.
I am attaching photos of the hearts of two white-tailed deer fawns I have necropsied this spring. The right ventricle was not much enlarged at all but the two fawns were newborns and the shape of the hearts are so different that they don't really look like the same species. However, the very narrow heart was from a fawn that was less than a week old and died of no food and/or a herniated, infected umbilicus. The wide heart with lots of fat was from a fawn that died of bloody fluid filling the thoracic cavity at about 2 weeks old. In both photos the right ventricle is on the right. I am sure you know that, but I always say it anyway.
Hopefully, I have answered your question concerning my perspectives, Nancy.
All the best,
