Glyphosate Linked to Bee Deaths By Nick Carne

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin in the US say honey bees exposed to the organophosphorus compound, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, the world’s biggest selling weed-killer, lose some of the beneficial bacteria in their guts and are more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria. Roundup also destroys beneficial bacteria in the human gut.

    • Great article, barovsky, illustrating how contact with an African continent undergoing cultural and intellectual renaissance helped Europe overcome their backwardness. It’s my understanding that Greece also “civilized” Rome following their military conquest and enslavement of the Greeks. Most of the heritage Europeans attribute to the Romans really came from Greece. I think history will show European civilization will have left very little to posterity, either.

  1. Does anyone have a clue as to what would happen if there are no bees to pollinate crops? Hint: There goes the food supply. Still wanna buy some Roundup? Go ahead. Your starving grandchildren will not thank you for it.

    “They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops. … We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain.May 4, 2014”
