[ocba] EPA and the Honey Bee

It seems that "systemic pesticides" and "neonicotinoid" are words that keep
cropping up lately. Until they come up with truly self-pollinating plants,
that's just got to be a bad idea.
Allowing trials to be performed by the companies who are making the
pesticides is crazy. Medical papers require any authors to publish any
predisposition for the outcome. It is ludicrous to think that a company
making pesticides won't try to build a study to get the answer they want.
And only testing for whether a chemical is lethal to bees, not what
sub-lethal doses do just doesn't give a real world perspective.

Thanks Randy for sharing this...just more bad new for the week, but finally
bringing light to one of the biggest causes for bees deaths and poor health.
If I understand it correctly, europe and a few other countries have already
banned this a few years ago....hope we catch up soon!
thanks for the info.
