37 Million Bees Found Dead In Ontario, Canada After Planting Large GMO Corn Field

Bees

Millions of bees dropped dead after GMO corn was planted few weeks ago in Ontario, Canada. The local bee keeper, Dave Schuit who produces honey in Elmwood lost about 37 million bees which are about 600 hives.

“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said. While many bee keepers blame neonicotinoids, or “neonics.” for colony collapse of bees and many countries in EU have banned neonicotinoid class of pesticides, the US Department of Agriculture fails to ban insecticides known as neonicotinoids, manufactured by Bayer CropScience Inc.

Two of Bayer’s best-selling pesticides, Imidacloprid and Clothianidin, are known to get into pollen and nectar, and can damage beneficial insects such as bees. The marketing of these drugs also coincided with the occurrence of large-scale bee deaths in many European countries and the United States.

Nathan Carey another local farmer says that this spring he noticed that there were not enough bees on his farm and he believes that there is a strong correlation between the disappearance of bees and insecticide use.

In the past, many scientists have struggled to find the exact cause of the massive die-offs, a phenomenon they refer to as “colony collapse disorder” (CCD). In the United States, for seven consecutive years, honeybees are in terminal decline.

  1. How much does it take before the government moves in and through the EPA shuts down the Genetically Modified Food Plants operation of Monsanto? How many poisonous chemicals do they have to throw on the land before enough is enough?
    This occurred in Canada. They have their own people looking into this kind of thing.
    I would suggest multiple lawsuits be sent through the system and close down the company once and for all. Every company either lives or dies on its economic prosperity. If it is economically dead due to legal suites against it, that would effectively shut them down.
    This man has lost his business. The community has lost one of the prime pollenators that nature has to reproduce plants.
    When any company regardless of how powerful or how stupid they appear to be threatens the entire planet then it is time to shut them down for good.
    I have never trusted foods that do not reproduce their own seeds. And that is exactly how this patented plant system works.
    Theoretically those instructions could be passed on to anyone that eats them. Which would mean a wholesale loss of reproduction for the entire human race. Literally billions of sterile people out there because in one generation they would end the human race on this planet.
    No one is saying that is going to happen. I am saying that it is potentially dangerous enough that it could happen.
    I am saying that Monsanto for all of its competence and scientists has slipped up big time.
    They are also a very powerful influence in the Congress and the rest of the government. They have even influenced government to the point where they do not have to declare on the label that the food is Genetically Modified. We have an entire cereal isle at the grocery that is using these products.
    Monsanto is not alone in this lack of accountability. They are just the most prominent one.
    Only time will tell what happens to a company like this. I suggest we need to keep a very close eye on court decisions made. Money talks. And in our legal system it has a very loud voice.
