Colony Collapse Disorder is may evident with the recent disappearance of bees. Is their disappearance because of all the genetically modified agricultural products...including corn?
Corn (maize), the major such crop, is not a preferred plant for honey bees, although beekeepers who keep bees near corn fields state that "corn is an excellent source of pollen when in tassel"
Corn, soy, sunflower and safflower oils are high in omega-6. In a study, men in the experiemntal group were given corn oil (high in omega-6). Their rate of cancer doubled over the next eight years, compared to men in the control group, who continued eating an average American diet. Before agriculture, there was much less omega-6 in our diet. (from The Shangri-La Diet)
It takes a half gallon of oil to grow one bushel of corn.
Is the disappearance of bees related to cell phone use?
The alarm was first sounded last autumn, but has now hit half of all American states. The West Coast is thought to have lost 60 per cent of its commercial bee population, with 70 per cent missing on the East Coast. This reminds me of the theory that whales have been beaching themselves because of sonar in Navy.
