Bees are dying. Whole bee colonies are disappearing and dying worldwide and in record numbers.
Here is a report from the Yucatan Times, exposing the fact that when Monsanto’s Roundup is heavily dumped on Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops, nearby honeybee colonies are dying – in just this one case – 15oo colonies to be exact. (Aside from killing honeybees, there are other equally devastating consequences of GMOs in Mexico.) Read article here.
Sometimes my fervent imagination wonders if Monsanto is purposely trying to wipe out the bees. Picture it: Monsanto lab-coat-clad scientists – working round the clock to develop a class of seeds that will grow self-pollinating crops. Instead of saving the bees, they could say, “We don’t need the bees anymore. Just buy our self pollinating seeds.”
What scares me about GMO crops even more than eating them is what they are doing to life on the planet – any and all life. Seeds, bugs, plants, animals, marine life, people.
Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder – a separate but related problem – is being studied and multiple causes are implicated, but could it be as simple as GMOs and the bevy of toxins associated with the technology?
