Neo-nicatinoids were marketed as being amazing pesticides that stayed inside the planet and didn't contaminate land or ground-water with run-off.
Thus they would only harm insects that bit into the plants.
When asked if this meant the grain these foods produced would also contain neo-nics, the smarmy spokesman I saw back in the day said yes, but only in
such tiny concentrations that it couldn't possibly harm somebody with the body mass above that of an insect.
... thus side-stepping the issue of what happens when these toxins start to build up over a prolonged time in your kidneys and livers.
Suffice as to say it wasn't just because of the bees that I was extremely happy neo-nics got banned.
