Farmer Finds Surprising Results When He Sends GMO Crop ‘Dust’ to Lab

The farmer collected some dust from the building where he housed his pigs and sent it to a lab, labeling it ‘hog dust.’ Midwest labs sent back their results:

The ‘hog dust’ contained:

“Liberty Link corn dust, Roundup Ready corn dust

Total mold count 14,000 cfu/g 7,200,000 cfu/g 15,600,000 cfu/g

Aspergillus sp. (other) 10,000 cfu/g 7,000,000 cfu/g 15,600,000 cfu/g

Penicillium sp 3,000 cfu/g 200,000 cfu/g —”

The mold found in the ‘hog dust’ can cause allergies, serious diseases, and Aspergillus can cause lung disease, asthma, viruses, and pneumonia. These contaminants also known to reduce beneficial fungi in the soil, crops grown in such ‘dust’ are not as nutritious as their non GM counterparts.
