EPA Approved GMO Insecticide Responsible For Killing Off Bees & Puts Entire Food Chain at Risk

New information has come out that links an insecticide approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to killing off millions of Bees and puts food chain at risk. In early 2011 several leaked documents obtained by a Colorado beekeeper brought light to the fact that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency‘s (EPA) illegitimate approval of Clothianidin, an extremely toxic pesticide made by Bayer CropScience, came regardless of the fact the agency knew it was capable of killing off Bees. As a new study emerges from Purdue University, not only is it 100% confirmed that Clothianidin is killing bees, but also that Clothinaidin’s toxicity is now found throughout the entire food chain.

More from Natural News:

The study, which was published in the online journalPLoS ONE, investigated the various methods and routes by which a class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, which includes clothianidin, are harming honey bees. They discovered that both clothianidin and thiamethoxam, another component of neonicotinoid insecticides, persist in “extremely high levels” in planter exhaust material produced during the planting of crops treated with these insecticides, which runs contrary to industry claims that the chemicals biodegrade and are not a threat.

The research team also found neonicotinoid compounds in soil, including in fields where the chemicals were not even sprayed, as well as on various plants and flowers visited by bees. Based on their analysis, the researchers involved with the study determined that bees actively transfer contaminated pollen from primarily neonicotinoid-treated corn crops, and bring it back to their hives. The bees also transfer neonicotinoid compounds to other plants and crops not treated with the chemicals, which shows just how persistent these chemicals truly are in the environment.

You can read the entire report for yourself at the following link:

“This research should nail the coffin lid shut on clothianidin,” said Laurel Hopwood, chairwoman of theSierra Club‘sGenetic Engineering Action Team, who is petitioning the EPA to finally ban these chemicals after years of needless delay. “Despite numerous attempts by the beekeeping industry and conservation organizations to persuade the EPA to ban clothianidin, the EPA has failed to protect the food supply for the American people.”

Without bees, which are now dying off at an alarming rate due to exposure to clothianidin and various other insecticides and fungicides, one third or more of the food supply will be destroyed, including at least 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables that rely on bees for pollination. This is why Dr. Neil Carman, Ph.D., scientific advisor toSierra Club, has put out a call for the EPA to immediately ban the use of clothianidin and the other neonicotinoid insecticides for the sake of protecting the food supply from irreversible destruction.

As we continue to take actions like this on the planet we continue to see that how we do things simply cannot sustain. This type of issue does not just reflect how we treat nature but also reflects how we operate as a whole. If money wasn’t so important, we wouldn’t be finding unnatural ways to do everything on this planet. If w weren’t so concerned with maintaing an economy an competition stuff like this wouldn’t affect us. This is all a perfect lesson for us to ask “What the heck are we doing to our planet?” We are at a point where our very survival is now threatened because w are fighting so hard to maintain a system we all don’t like anyway.

15 Comments on EPA Approved GMO Insecticide Responsible For Killing Off Bees & Puts Entire Food Chain at Risk

  1. Why are GMOs mentioned here? Neonicotinoids have nothing to do with them, it’s used on any kind of crop, GMO and non…

  2. We should boycott monsanto and bayer and the other corp. that is handling the world food supply. Make your voice heard. Also the colleges who do scientific research for these corps. need to know, as if they didn’t already and have been threatened with loss of tenor. The need to make good on their scientific data to all mankind.

    Jesus is the only answer. If all men would come to know Him the world would truly have a lasting peace. He said He will never leave you or forsake you. God bless you all!
    Romans ch. 10 vs. 8-10, the Bible

  3. Yes, I would definitely contact my state and fed reps. also the governor of your state. Cause it’s on their dime.

  4. I think it was last year where we voted or didn’t vote for proper food labeling. Anyway it was voted against. and of course they had all the farmers; dr.’s; mayor’s; senators ect. saying it would only make food cost more and not necessarily be a help.
    It’s all about who is in your pocket, who’s got the money. GREED!
    It’s time to start growing your own food or start stocking up! And PRAY like you never have before. GOD the Almighty is listening to every word and if you trust in Him He said He will never leave you or forsake you. Trust in Jesus today!

  5. Well put Ian…you took the words out of my mouth.. Sorrowfully Jay is among the sleeping!!
    The day the government fixes their own mistakes is because they figured a new way of making money. It’s funny how we refer to the Corporations and Government as if they weren’t run by other human beings.. who will also be affected by the horrors they commit. I think they’re ultimate plan is to make as much money as possible and then die before the real Shit hits the fan. I hear you Laura…what can we do ????

  6. The GMO insecticide was approved by the EPA. One would assume that it had been tested by the EPA prior to its being approved. Even without any tests being done looking up”clothianidin” on the iweb would reveal the dangers associated with it. I assume that the EPA have computers? I would expect that some of the the board members of the EPA have larger bank balances now thanks to Bayer Crop Science . It is now found to be harmful. Certain departments of governments in the Western world do not appear to care a fig about their fellow humans. You appear to just assume that it is not true that Governments are out to hurt us. Will they be doing anything to counter this poisoning (for that is what it is), and correct their “mistake”. I very much doubt it! (how can the death of millions of bees be corrected.

  7. Paranoia. Our government is not trying to kill or sicken us. Everyone makes mistakes. We learn from them, then we adjust, adapt and overcome the situation. The EPA is there to help not hurt us. Internet fueled stories paint them as out to hurt us all which is simply not true. Again stories like this are just trying to add to the overwhelming amount of Internet fueled paranoia that grows by the day.

  8. Couldn’t agree with you more… as a predominately peaceful person I’m having a hard time keeping my cool. It seems petitions, documentaries and protests have little to no effect on these blow flies from sucking every thing good out of our planet for no other reason than greed and power. I’m speechless when it comes to… how do we stop this now and forever without screaming ” Bomb the F#%*er’s”!! They are hell bent on destroying our lives and it’s only right that we protect ourselves!! …Frustrated and mad as hell!!!

  9. So what can we do about it other than complainand worry? Can we get after our representatives or won’t that help? This information is upsetting but don’t leave it at that. Advise us on how to make a difference

  10. just the original source of GMO products and those providing sponsorship of the GMO research surely should have been enough to have peals of alarm bells ringing across the world……how many people would set a wolf to guard a flock of sheep or a fox to guard a henhouse…yet billions of people worldwide opened their arms to embrace the Monsanto Shark and let it play in their own fishponds. Monsanto have backed research and development of 7/8 of the things most damaging to ourselves and our planet. WAKE UP. But please DO NOT smell the roses as they are most likely poisoned now as well. WAKE UP. Those of you who are not too weak already or too unresponsive (just like they PLANNED).
    :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$

  11. Its sad that people with money and power are aloud to slowly hurt and kill us. we have no say or control in what happens in our own country. our rights are almost annulled. there is no sign of change. only signs of things getting much worse. Voting doesnt work, protesting doesnt work. We can not fight, we dont have the power. we can only watch our friends, family and children decline into weekened, sick, docile, poverty stricken, followers. Freedom does not exist in the USA its only an illusion, and the human race is not far off from extinction.
