How do we determine the difference between these...mutant bees(?) and regular bees? I have like two different and very active bee hives on my street and if they're not legit bees I'm going to exterminate.

Monsanto was working on a resistant Bee they could sell.

Just a humble reminder to everyone: unless we ourselves eat organic as often as possible, we're simply contributing to this problem.

I don't understand myself why this doesn't register higher on the outrage scale. There are people fighting tooth and nail against the environmentalist in order to protect the interests and concerns of polluters. Could there be any more corporate collusion? Monsanto and the EPA, Big Pharma and the FDA. We need to clean out governing AGENCIES since they have proved culpability and corruption and can no longer operate reliably in the peoples interest. I wish ordinary citizens who enjoy produce, trees and flowers would wake up and smell the ROUND UP.
He hopes to reverse the decline of the honeybee by breeding cleaner bees to protect hives from harmful diseases. The cleaner bee is a breed of worker bee that will be genetically programmed to keep hives clean.
They will be responsible for removing pupae and larvae from the hives if they are dead or dying. Currently these cleaner bees only exist in very small numbers. The hygienic bee was first observed in the 1930s, but at most only 10-percent of a hive has bees with this gene. Source: Planetsave (s.tt...)

Julie Newman, from www.non-gm-farmers.com... a Fair Dinkum Aussie, gives us the real run down, on the Genetically Modified Food (if you can call it food), that our Government and companies like, Monsanto, are trying to cram down our throats. Julie lays out the ludicrous guidelines that Non-GMO Farmers will face, such as if you grow next door to a GMO farm, you might have to have, up to a 3 kilometre buffer zone, to claim GMO free!! She exposes the lies about crop yields...
Scientists from the United Nations (UN) say the phenomenon is now a global crisis, afflicting bees across China, Japan, and Africa, as well as in other places. The report, issued by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), explains,,

Please we have to keep working at this. We don't want this food-we may have to live with taxes but Ihave been buying only organic food, and I will continue to also. I am also starting a garden with organic seeds-don't buy seeds unless they are organic too.
