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.

A powerful nuclear pulse was created somewhere in the upper Midwest and spread a radioactive wave front outward hundreds of miles across America’s Heartland. Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous. The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city is listed last.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM.
