Bees are rapidly vanishing from the US, Canada and other countries yet the ‘experts’ have little clue why and most governments are not providing sufficient funding to study or resolve the crisis.
Bees are an essential part of nature and ensure that seeds plants are able to reproduce. Without bees or a replacement insect, the pollen won’t get spread and the plants won’t reproduce.
The largest managed pollination event in the world is in the Californian almond orchards, where hundreds of thousands of hives are trucked to the almond orchards each spring. New York’s apple crop requires about 30,000 hives; Maine’s crop uses about 50,000 hives each year. These hives are now missing 30-70% of the bees that should be in the hives. This means that many food crops simply won’t produce fruits, vegetables or nuts and humans will lose a significant portion of their food supply.
Bees are sensitive to pesticides, insecticides and herbicides yet have managed to survive most agricultural poisons until recently. The new threat to bees and all life are genetically modifed (GM) crops. Crops such as Bt corn is engineered to contain a toxin in every cell of the plant, including the pollen. As bees come into contact with the plants they are exposed to the toxin but also to the unstable inserted DNA.
The DNA from GM crops is unstable and has been proven to detach and transfer to the DNA of the bacteria in the digestive tract of insects, animals and humans. Once the bacteria inside the digestive tract has become contaminated with the DNA from the Bt crop the bacteria may start producing the same toxin and/or be able to perform its normal functions.
A three-year study by Professor Hans-Heinrich Kaatz at the University of Jena in Germany revealed that the gene used to modify oil-seed rape (canola) had transferred to bacteria living inside honey bees. In an interview for “The Observer” newspaper in the UK, Kaatz said: “I have found the herbicide-resistant genes in the rapeseed transferred across to the bacteria and yeast inside the intestines of young bees.
If the DNA from genetically modified canola has been proven to transfer to the bacteria inside bees then it is certain that the Bt gene from corn would also transfer.
Human feeding studies of GM soy showed that the mutant DNA from soy transferred to the bacteria in the human intestine after only one feeding. The same can be expected of other GM crops.
Serious intestinal disorders are becoming epidemic as the DNA contamination spreads throughout the human population in countries with GM crops and those that import GM foods. Humans and most other beings depend upon complex interactions with bacteria, yeasts and other microbes to exist. Tampering with the microbes is to tamper with the very existence of life on Earth.
The loss of crops from the lack of pollenation combined with rapid climate change has resulted in a serious loss of food security. This is an urgent and critical issue that must be addresssed immediately or else we will face mass famine on a scale never before experienced.
This situation should come as no surprise.
The sinister force behind genetic modification of food crops is the criminal Mansanto Corporation. It is genetically engineering all the species it can to gain control over the human food supply. Once it modifies the DNA of a species it can obtain a patent on the species and thus ownership. Because Monsanto nows owns most of the seed companies in North America and many other parts of the world, it can spread its patented seeds around the world. As the pollen from GM crops inevitably spreads, so does their ownership of the plants.
Monsanto has a long criminal history of creating the world’s most toxic chemicals and forcing them into the environment and food supply. Monsanto has brought the world such poisons as DDT, PCBs, dioxin, saccharin, aspartame, agent orange, and its current catalog of toxic herbicides and pesticides. The company has been found guilty of countless crimes around the world yet still remains a powerful force that influences various govt. agencies, universities, mass media and research scientists.
Anyone who tries to blame GM crops or any Monsanto product for the demise of the bees is likely to quickly lose their job and be silenced, no matter how much proof they have.
Since the cause of the vanishing bees will not be exposed and couldn’t be remedied even if it was, the inevitable will continue to occur and all life on Earth, including humans will suffer the consequences.
If you care about your health, the health of your family and pets you should avoid all genetically modified foods and try to buy only GMO-free organically grown food whenever possible. When you buy GM food you directly contribute to the problem.
