GE Corn & Sick Honey Bees - What's the Link?


Environment  (tags: honey bee sickness, GE seeds, neonicotinoids, corn cultivation )

1) What do GE seeds have to do with neonicotinoids and bees? and 2) How can an Iowa corn farmer find himself feeling unable to farm without poisoning pollinators? In other words, where did U.S. corn cultivation go wrong?

Intrucing GM is where! Ditto for the pesticides. Farmer's had best wake up as they need pollinators to survive.

CARE2 acting up again as i can't note anything nor get to my messages.

if companies like monsanto can kill off the bee they are one step closer to truly owning the food supply with out bees to pollinate we would be forced to purchase GE food that would self pollinating. its been going on for years and only now are we all catching the link and the question is will we do something before the take over happens
Peace and Love

MONSANTO (Money Only Narrative Sabotages All Organisms) wants to control all the food production on the earth. They will take us to the future where they'll combine with Big Pharma to provide the shots that will keep us alive after eating the poisoned food that Monsanto, Bayer, AIGA has made the only food available.

I believe Monsanto and other chemical companies control the heads of our government agencies and enough congressmen to do anything they want to do.

U.S. corn cultivation went wrong when we added these guys to the mix FDA,EPA & USDA.

Would be wonderful if Monsanto, GE and their ilk just did the entire world a favor and vaporized themselves. I now only grow or buy organic. I am willing to bet they can tie the rise in many health conditions such as Alzheimer's, Parkenson's and others directly to Monsanto, Bayer, GE and their ilk's creating the poison they call food. The citizens of the world need to unite and sue the pants off these creeps-, lock them all up and feed them nothing but their own poisons. Works for me....

I'm afraid Michael M., above may be right. This is frightening. Thanks Ellyn.

Wonderful. IF WE EACH BUY ORGANIC SEEDS, OR GET THEM FOR FREE, AND SAVE SOME EACH YEAR, WE CAN GROW OUR OWN GREENHOUSE FOOD, OR BACK YARD FOOD EACH YEAR.

DID YOU READ ABOUT THE LADY WHO SUCCESFULLY SUED MONSANTO?

GE can't be good for bees. The health of bees should come before big agri-corporations and their greed.

I don't see any solutions here. How can we stop GE and others from making only these seeds available to farmers? Where can we get 'organic' - truly fresh corn seeds? Do they exist any more? We should be able to help.

It went wrong when we decided to "control" nature, rather than working with her in a natural, sustainable way. The ego and greed of man will be our own downfall.

MONSANTO, BAYER, DOW, etc are killing us and the bees. The farmers who wish to plant regular corn can no longer even find unadulterated seed! (I have some indigenous corn seed from Robert Mirabal here at home, in an envelope, from his Taos crop, that I am holding on to.) So, never buy anything that has the word "NATURAL" on the package! This is GMO and PESTICIDE poisoned. These companies have the right to use this word, despite the fact that to We, the people, GMO and pesticides are NOT natural. VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS AND BUY ONLY ORGANIC ALL THE WAY.

This whole situation is absolutely pathetic for every living thing on earth!!!!!!! The "BIG" guys aren't happy unless
they are killing something or someone with their products.........it's a crying shame!
