Apparently France has a case of bees making coloured honey. The given reason; a near by biogas factory making Mars bars and M&Ms, the bees are eating
the colorued waste of the M&Ms thus an alteration effects the true amber colour of the honey itself.
Bees making coloured honey
French apiarist Andre Frieh holds a sample of honey, left, beside coloured ones at his home in Ribeauville near Colmar Eastern France on Oct. 5. Bees
at a cluster of bee hives in northeastern France have been producing honey in mysterious shades of blue and green, alarming their keepers.
I found this very odd and the first thing that came to my head was the 'bee die-off' we've had the last couple years. So of course the very next
thing that came to my head was, genetical modification of Nature's properties.

What was killing all those honeybees in recent years? New research shows a link between an increase in the death of bees and insecticides,
specifically the chemicals used to coat corn seeds.
As well as making honey, honey bees pollinate countless hectares of agricultural crops. It’s estimated that a third of the food you eat could be
attributed to pollination by bees. The productivity of modern agriculture would be drastically reduced without the humble honey bee. There is a whole
industry based around trucking bee hives to crops for pollination duties
Mystified, the beekeepers embarked on an investigation and discovered that a biogas plant 4 km (2.5 miles) away has been processing waste from a Mars
plant producing M&M’s, bite-sized candies in bright red, blue, green, yellow and brown shells.
This random excuse bothers me.. it just seems very made up to me? As well.. if you google anything about the 'Agrivalor biogas plant in Franve
Ribeauville, every picture and article that comes up is from the past couple days. (Like put into the media stream).
Heres' a bothering quote;
"France is one of the largest producers of honey within the European Union, producing some 18,330 tonnes annually, according to a recent audit
conducted for national farm agency FranceAgriMer"
When we realize how important the honey bee is to the ecosystem, we can understand why they could be a target in a modern era of genetically modifying
things that circulate in socieites food system.
Many things depend on honey, its a large consumer in the world today. Lots of plant and floweyour post herer species depend on the honey bees to
reproduce and potentially evolve.
By altering the DNA of the bee, they can modify how the bee's body functions; such as altering the way they produce honey.. changing certain genetics
within the bee will cause an altering in the 'honey-system' of bee hives. A possible DNA change would give the honey itself negative properties,
thus effecting its role within the ecosystem.
Not saying its true.. just a thought, but Im not going to belive bees are randomly eating candy? Makes no sense.. bees have never been recorded (ever)
to eat candy waste..let alone random M&Ms lol!
Im wondering if anyone on ats has a better or more believable conclusion then the media's given excuse or my own theory of intentionally modifying
the honey bee to cause bad effect in the Ecosystem.
