Editor’s Note: Here’s what a grocery store looks like without bees:
How many times does the fact that rampant, widespread pesticide use kills bees have to be ‘scientifically confirmed’ before these biotech conglomerates are stopped! Europe has put bans on pesticides thought to be poisoning bees. The article below even mentions how it’s ‘particularly alarming’ because the U.S. doesn’t have laws banning the use of the pesticides that are killing bees. In fact, our so-called Environmental Protection Agency is currently about to raise the limits of these chemicals in our food!
Without bees, there will be a lot less food. That’s how pollination works! One might start to wonder if that’s exactly what these genetically modified food producers are hoping for, a world dependent on GMO.
Scientists confirm: Pesticides kill America’s honey bees
July 25, 2013
Honey bees are quickly disappearing from the US – a phenomenon that has left scientists baffled. But new research shows that bees exposed to common agricultural chemicals while pollinating US crops are less likely to resist a parasitic infection.
As a result of chemical exposure, honey bees are more likely to succumb to the lethal Nosema ceranae parasite and die from the resulting complications.
Scientists from the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture on Wednesday published a study that linked chemicals, including fungicides, to the mass die-offs. Scientists have long struggled to find the cause behind the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), in which an estimated 10 million beehives at an average value of $200 each have been lost since 2006.
