Our sacred, hard working honey 🐝BEES are finally placed under the endangered species list. A sad moment but needed awakening. 🙏🏼 I am sure we have all heard of the ongoing conversation of colony collapse disorder (CCD) and this massive question surrounding the vast disappearance of the worlds BEES… and we know just how important these little winged workers are as they are responsible for pollinating 30% of the worlds food and 90% of our wild plants. 90 percent of our plants means its not just blueberries, broccoli, nuts and other foods but we also depend on bees for a large amount of the clean air on earth.
Here is what we know from scientific studies and also what many companies like MONSANTO & BAYER are denying. In a sobering chain of events scientists have discovered that certain pesticides containing neonicotnoids are at the root of this. Neonicotnoids came about in the 1980s and began being used vastly in the 1990s as a powerful pesticide used to “protect” crops from unwanted pests. Unfortunately these pesticides are not able to discriminate between "good" insects and the “bad”, and as a result any insect they come in contact with are affected. How a neonicotnoid works is it attacks the insects nervous system. When bees are introduced to these #monsanto #pesticides they slowly lose cognitive function, have seizures and are rendered unable to navigate their way back to the hive, hence colony collapse disorder.
These monsato crops and #GMOS end up on our dinner tables all across the country. Think about what you eat and if these neurotoxins cause bees to loose cognitive control what breakfast, lunch and dinner might do to us?
Here is what we can do. First make a choice to buy and suport organic and NONGMO foods and ingredients. By investing in naturally grown food we reduce many unknown health risks which could cost us much, much more down the road. Why risk it? By investing in organic and non-gmo foods we are taking a step to protect the bees, protect our worlds food source, protect our clean air and protect our planet.
Einstein once calculated that if the bees disappeared off the earth four years later humans would have also disappeared…
