An Iowa Farmer Speaks About How GMOs Are Harmful

Howard Vlieger is a third generation Iowa farmer who, along with his son, still works the farm on which he was born. He serves on the boards of directors for the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) and the Council for Healthy Food Systems, and is a Co-Founder of Verity Farms. Howard is uniquely qualified to speak on the subject of GMOs. He has worked as a biological farming advisor helping family farmers in more than 10 states with alternative crop and natural livestock production since 1992. Howard works with scientists and researchers from around the world investigating problems associated with GMO crops. This, combined with real life experience, gives him a unique perspective on GMOs.

“In 1994 I became a student of GMO crops. I studied the manner in which they were made and then when they were introduced in the US, I began to observe both first hand and through the experiences of farming customers from across the Midwest the adverse effects of the GMO crops to both the environment and livestock. I have been able to work with nutritionists to help mitigate problems caused by the GMO while farmers replace the GMO grains with non-GMO grain and eliminate the previous problems. The negative effects of GMOs and the negative effects of glyphosate (the active chemical ingredient in the world's most widely used herbicide Roundup) are becoming more intense and more obvious every day.”
