As honey bees forage on nectar and drink, they are dosed with chemicals; "Neonics"
not only cause disruptions in navigation, feeding behavior, foraging activity, memory
and learning, and overall hive health; they are actually lethal
to bees even
in minute low dosage harmful.
Now, a team of scientists believe they have found
the molecular mechanism
through which pesticides adversely impact the immune system of honey bees.
Neonicotinoids are pesticides commonly used in Genetically Modified Crops
by Monsanto and other Round Up Ready crops.
The team’s experiments suggest that exposure to neonicotinoids
results in increased levels of a particular protein in bees that inhibits a key
molecule involved in the immune response, making the insects more
susceptible to attack by harmful viruses.
The three "Neonics" in use by the large chemical companies such as
, Bayer and Syngenta are
imidacloprid thiamethoxam and clothianidin mainly on GMO Corn, Soy, and Canola
What can we do to stop this madness?
We do have a voice, let it be heard!
Support the bans already in place, research must considered
above Chemical Corps profits!
Protest, Boycott, Spread the Word.
Some countries have banned and restricted the use of these toxic crops,
The U.S. needs to follow this movement and end support of large chemical
companies Monsanto, Bayer, and Syngenta.
Plight of The Pollinators
before its too late!
