Common crop pesticides kill honeybee larvae in the bee hive

Common crop pesticides kill honeybee larvae in the bee hive | Tu es ce que tu manges ! | Scoop.it
Four pesticides commonly used on crops to kill insects and fungi also kill honeybee larvae within their hives, according to Penn State and University of Florida researchers.

 

The team also found that N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) -- an inert, or inactive, chemical commonly used as a pesticide additive -- is highly toxic to honeybee larvae.

 

"We found that four of the pesticides most commonly found in beehives kill bee larvae," said Jim Frazier, professor of entomology, Penn State. "We also found that the negative effects of these pesticides are sometimes greater when the pesticides occur in combinations within the hive. Since pesticide safety is judged almost entirely on adult honeybee sensitivity to individual pesticides and also does not consider mixtures of pesticides, the risk assessment process that the Environmental Protection Agency uses should be changed."

 

According to Frazier, the team's previous research demonstrated that forager bees bring back to the hive an average of six different pesticides on the pollen they collect. Nurse bees use this pollen to make beebread, which they then feed to honeybee larvae.

 

To examine the effects of four common pesticides -- fluvalinate, coumaphos, chlorothalonil and chlorpyrifos -- on bee larvae, the researchers reared honeybee larvae in their laboratory. They then applied the pesticides alone and in all combinations to the beebread to determine whether these insecticides and fungicides act alone or in concert to create a toxic environment for honeybee growth and development.

The researchers also investigated the effects of NMP on honeybee larvae by adding seven concentrations of the chemical to a pollen-derived, royal jelly diet. NMP is used to dissolve pesticides into formulations that then allow the active ingredients to spread and penetrate the plant or animal surfaces onto which they are applied. The team fed their treated diet, containing various types and concentrations of chemicals, to the laboratory-raised bee larvae.

 

Multi-billion pounds of these inactive ingredients of pesticides can easily overwhelm the total chemical burden from the active pesticide, drug and personal-care ingredients with which they are formulated. Among these co-formulants are surfactants and solvents of known high toxicity to fish, amphibians, honey bees and other non-target organisms. While we have found that NMP contributes to honeybee larvae mortality, the overall role of these inactive ingredients in pollinator decline remains to be determined."

This infographic on chemicals in beauty products takes 'Cosmetics Dirty Dozen' to a whole new level. What do you think? Source: The Daily Mail
Ines Jurisic's insight:

Istraživanje  vodjeno u SAD-u je potvrdilo da zene koje konzumiraju "normalne" higijenske proizvode i šminku tokom samo godinu dana, nataloze 2 kilograma otrovnih kemikalija u njihovim tijelima: parabeni, konzervansi, ulje itd , 2 kg !!!  kao mala kanta boje za fasadu.  

 

Ova studija je objavljena, komentirana, ali ništa se ne događa: za neke ljude, ljepota je nametnuta od vanjskog svijeta. Nešto što se ne može raspravljati:  Mora se sto se mora  da se sakriju bore, imati svijez ten ili dugotrajan lak za nokte!

Prema istraživanju koje je proveo Bionsen, britanska tvrtka koja prodaje kozmetičke dezodoranse bez aluminija, žena se mazu u prosjeku sa 515 kemikalija svaki dan.


A najgore  je da ne samo da sami sebi stetimo,  no mi te otrove prenosimo  na naše potomke: npr triklosan i triklokarban, dva antibakterijska sredstva prisutna u mnogim potrošačkim proizvodima, koji se redovno mogu pronaci u tijelu trudnice i može se prenijeti na plod !!


Kako čitati etikete :

 

Aqua  : voda

 

Sastojci pisani velikim slovima su često loše za zdravlje i okoliš PEG (polietilen glikol), PPG (polipropilena glikoli), BHT, SLS (Natrijev lauril sulfat, surfaktanti), EDTA ..

 

Prirodni biljni ekstrakti su gotovo uvijek prepoznati po latinskom nazivu.

 

U principu, sve što završava u -ane -ona -thiconol silanom siloksanom odnosi se na silikon i vjesnost mu treba da se raspadne u okolišu, samo dati iluziju odgovarajuće hidratacije i guše kožu s njihivom okuzivnom akcijom

 

Proizvodi dobiveni od petrokemikalija se zovu na latinskom vazelin i paraffinum liquidum. Opet, proizvod koji tvrde da se temelji hidratantna ulja sve može u stvari sadrže vrlo male količine biljnih ulja za velikim količinama mineralna ulja dobiveni od petrokemikalija.

 

CI slijedi odnosi se na broj boje, prirodne ili ne

 

Riječi "parfema" ili "miris" Uvijek odrediti sintetički miris.

 

Prirodni mirisi iz eteričnih ulja su navedeni biljka biljka na latinskom jeziku.

 

Alergeni uključene u službeni popis alergena uvijek su navedene na kraju, ali to nisu sastojci radije prirodnih spojeva drugih sastojaka. Međutim, oni nam govore o alergenske potencijalnog proizvoda: linalool, geraniol, limonen.

Forget GMO fear: DuPont Predicts CRISPR GMO Plants on Dinner Plates in 5 Years

Forget GMO fear: DuPont Predicts CRISPR GMO Plants on Dinner Plates in 5 Years | Tu es ce que tu manges ! | Scoop.it

Agricultural biotech giants are starting to make moves into CRISPR gene editing, saying they’ll be selling seeds engineered with the technology by the end of this decade.

DuPont said today it entered an agreement with Caribou Biosciences, a spin-off from the laboratory of Jennifer Doudna at the University of California, Berkeley, who carried out key work on CRISPR-Cas9, a technology that provides something like a find-and-replace feature for DNA.

DuPont says it is already growing corn and wheat plants edited with CRISPR in greenhouses and that field trials will start next spring.

“We are talking about bringing products to market in five to 10 years,” says Neal Gutterson, vice president for agricultural biotechnology at Pioneer Hi-Bred, part of DuPont’s $11-billion-per-year crop chemicals and biotech seed business. “That is a pretty damn good time line compared to other technology.”

DuPont is testing CRISPR to make drought-resistant corn as well as wheat genetically altered so it will breed like a hybrid, rather than self-pollinate as it typically does. Hybrid plants are vigorous, and yields can jump by 10 or 15 percent.

A growing list of plant types have already been genetically engineered with CRISPR-Cas9 in academic laboratories, including soybeans, rice, and potatoes. Last month, a Japanese team used gene editing to turn off fruit-ripening genes in tomato plants.

 

As part of their collaboration, DuPont said it had made an investment in Caribou, a small startup that holds commercial rights to patents Berkeley has applied for on CRISPR-Cas9. DuPont will have exclusive rights to those patents in crops like corn and soybeans, should they be approved.

 

Currently, most GMOs are transgenic plants that have been engineered by adding bacterial genes to the plants so that they poison insects or survive weed sprays. Thanks to biotechnology, the seed business has ballooned to about $40 billion a year, and companies like Monsanto, Dow, DuPont, and Syngenta have come to dominate it. But the need to invest millions more in a sweeping technology shift hits as depressed commodity markets have made the profitability of biotech seeds less certain.

 

Gutterson says DuPont thinks gene editing will kick off a new wave of products and profits. “We have no doubt that genome editing is going to have a material impact on the value proposition,” he says. “We think another whole cycle could come from genome editing.”

 

Gene editing could lead to some surprising creations in agriculture. For instance, peanuts have a number of proteins responsible for allergies. Getting rid of them is challenging, but allergy-free peanuts might be possible with the new technology.

The cost of being unhealthy | Tu es ce que tu manges ! | Scoop.it
We eat too much, drink too much and don't get enough exercise. It's that simple. And if you think that doesn't apply to you, you're probably wrong.

There are seven established factors that raise the risk of ill health. They cover everything from smoking to low fruit and vegetable consumption.

An incredible 93% have at least one risk factor, according to the Health Survey for England. Over a third have three or more.

Of course, there are some encouraging signs. Smoking rates are falling and there's evidence to suggest obesity and problem drinking rates are stabilising. But, nonetheless, the scale of unhealthiness is still proving to be serious burden.

Starbucks doesn’t publish the ingredients online.Starbucks doesn’t publish the allergen information online.Starbucks is inconsistent. We were given slightly different ingredients depending on who we spoke to at Starbucks.

I also broke down the complete list of ingredients in this popular latte, including caramel coloring that contains the chemical 4-Mel, which is classified as a possible human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and National Toxicity Program. A 2-year government funded feeding study found that 4-Mel caused lung cancer in mice. The Center of Science in Public Interest and the Consumers Union (the policy and action arm of Consumer Reports) recently petitioned the FDA to take action to limit caramel coloring in soft drinks.
