IN THE winter of 2006 beekeepers in America noticed something odd—lots of their hives were dying for no obvious reason.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that as bees move from flower to flower they are gathering more and more of these toxic chemicals. Their little immune systems can't handle it and this weakness makes them more vulnerable to all sorts of viruses and illness. Beyond this, we humans eat the honey they work so hard to make. Connecting the dots: could it be that the same pesticides sprayed on the food and crops we eat be a cause for the massive obesity, diabetes, ADHD, alzheimers epidemic also?
Some of the world's most commonly used pesticides are killing bees by damaging their ability to navigate and reducing numbers of queens, research suggests.
