Former Agribusiness Farmer Loses Biz to GMOs

Posted on Jul 6 2012 - 4:20pm by Sustainable Pulse

Jerry Rosman used to be one of the Agribusiness villains. He believed in the GMO hype. He made a point of buying the latest and greatest products coming down the GMO pipeline. That is, he did until he lost his business to it.

After long research, Jerry Rosman discovered his  pigs couldn’t reproduce because of genetically engineered corn. They produced sacs of water—false pregnancies. As a result, he’s become an organic farmer and proponent of organic foods. As he notes, pigs are the canary in the coalmine of GMO because they’re fed diets that consist of large percentages of it. But cattle are known to be affected—and there’s a developing problem with sterility in humans.

Following is the full-length interview of Jerry talking about what happened. He backs up what he says with information from the inside, including (in the second video) what happens to researchers who tell the truth.

In spite of laws saying that GMOs are illegal in the EU, some gets through the marketing system. If you’re in the EU, don’t be so sure that there aren’t any GMOs in your supermarkets. As Jerry points out, enforcement of regulations is poor.

    These are facts; The EU byes GM soybeens and Maize from Latin America, spread with Roundup. So their cattle, swine, chicken are fed these venoms, and that is what people end up eating.
    There are no conclusive studies about the genetic material going through the intestine walls and into the blood and the organisms of those who consume the meat, milk and eggs. There seem to be proof of this entering the organism of the animals.
    Here in Latin America we are their lab rats, foods are not labeled, no one knows how this will end, but we have some suspicions.
    Personally, we have organic growers nearby, and are aware, but we are minority.
