Life is too short to worry about it
were are our bees going ?
Why are our bees disappearing.
Last week I planted wild flowers to help out our poor bees. It seems GMO crops have a lot to do with affecting the immune system of bees all over North America. Monsanto started planting GMO crops in Maui a couple of years ago. Coincidentally the bee population has been in decline ever since.
( Bt) is proving to be the culprit. Scientist have modified crops to contain this bacteria. Most of the corn comming from California is GMO corn. Man made crops containing Bt have a weakening affect on the bees. It seems to make them loose their way back to the nest causing Colony Collapse Disorder ( CCD) Bt is found in the pollen of the crops. It will then be found in the bee pollen. Studies from Jenna University shows that bees fed Bt have a low resistant to mites. Mites are another cause for the reduction in bees. It has been 15 years since GMO crops were allowed in Canada. This is just the first results of GMO technology, so how will the long term results be on humans and nature ( insect, plants and animals). The certain way to avoid GMO food is to buy organic.
