Chemicals Are Killing Our Bee Population

The dying and disappearance of honey bees has an ecological, economic and political implication. This is not just happening in some of the western countries, this is a problem worldwide. In one of my articles published some time ago I made this point: "The Honey Bees Are Dying - Do We Need Them?" Even in this short space of time the situation has worsen and is accelerating its momentum on a path of distraction to our honeybee population.

Ecologically: Not only to the honey - bee population, this has been a concern of the damage done over years to many of surroundings through spraying of herbicides and pesticides.

On the economic site of all this is to make big profits and the greed for money but not considering the consequences and damage they have created over the past and will in to the future.

Implications of political correctness is always incorrect and is failing to show its correctness. Governments are most of the time on a go slow when it comes to take prompt action to solve an urgent problem.

What is killing our Bees by the millions?

Some countries or crop farming areas are more affected than others. Because treatments of seeds with chemicals sown as crops bees are dying in an alarming rate because of chemicals and pesticides.

Neonicotinoid insecticide is a toxic chemical used to treat seeds before planting. As the plant grows the pesticide is already absorbed. Later the chemical becomes a part of the pollen and nectar of the plant and has a deadly effect to the Bees and any pollinating insect by attacking their nervous system.

The problem doesn't stop here. It has been known that air-seeds are blown long distances by the wind, spreading pesticides and further increasing toxic chemicals to large areas.

A big amount of food supply depends on pollination from Bees and insects. If those deadly chemical and insecticide treatments are continuing there will be a devastating shortage of food worldwide.

It is ironic! On the other hand we been told that GMOs (genetically modified organisms - foods) are of importance to increase our crop yield for the benefit to feed some of the starving people in the world. How can this be possible without having Bees and insects to pollinate the plants? Or are these chemical companies developing a robot type of Bees and insects to pollinate our food?

European Union has acted on massive Bee distraction!

It seems the European Union is one of the first to wake up from its extended snooze behind the wheel by banning some of that chemical and pesticide cocktails. Not unlike most extended bodies of governments it is most difficult to get the ball rolling, the union is not one hundred percent convinced of the problem. At least they will have a test trail to see what sort of effect it will have on the Bee population.

According to some of the latest reports the European Food and Safety Authority (EFCA) together with the European Union have reached a decision to ban some pesticides including the most deadly ones:

Thiametoxan, Neonicotinoid, Clothianidin, and Imidaclopric etc. These are the world's most widely used insecticides that are unacceptable, damaging and unhealthy.

Chemical manufacturers are reluctant to accept any responsibility. National governments are still ignoring this fast growing evidence of the harm to our Bee colonies.

The risk posed by sub lethal doses of chemicals for any type of use is never admitted. For a chemical company that makes three billion dollars profit in one year and pays compensation of over 700 million dollars for side effects and death occurred on prescription drugs to humans is not going to show any concern about destroying the Bee colonies unless forced to do so. For them profits always come first!

Bees are known to bring us honey!

Yes, honey is a nutritious natural food and has many good health benefits in our diet, but it doesn't just stop there. The Bee is one of many insects that pollinate a big percentage of our food. It is in every ones best interest in supporting our Bee population before it is too late. It is almost incomprehensible of the devastation this would have on our food supply and the environment.

What honey can do!

Here are some ideas and examples of honey and what it is good for. Although honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage it does not harm diabetes patients. Cholesterol: As simple as two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in a cup of warm water can lower the level of cholesterol by ten percent within hours. I've been using honey as a sweetener in coffee, tea etc. for many years. Having daily honey on a slice of brown rye-bread and plenty of cinnamon powder sprinkled over it will keep the arteries clear, and if you like the taste of cinnamon use it wherever possible. It is known to dissolve deadly plaque in the arteries, reduces blood pressure and lower strokes. On my last doctor visit I had my blood pressure checked; my blood pressure was better than the one of a person at the age of 21; that was almost ten years ago, I was seventy than and haven't seen a doctor since.

Not only are chemicals killing our Bees, also our health is daily in danger from chemicals, pesticides and preservatives.

Your health is the most important thing you have, so protect it the best way you can by taking all the necessary precautions that are available to you.
