Science has been relatively clear in predicting how few are the years between when the bees die and when the humans follow them. It appears now that the honey bees are pretty well on their way to extinction in the majority of the globe. Up till now it was considered something of a mystery as to who killed them.
New scientific evidence is now emerging to explain very clearly the sequence of steps – between Monsanto’s marketing of GMO corn – and the death of the bees. (See the paper – with abundant references.)
The global bee die off did not reach Brazil for example until just after they let in Monsanto’s GMO corn. Now it is Australia’s turn. That is one of the few places in the world which still has healthy bees. The test is whether they will follow the foolish lead of Brazil in letting in GMO corn. So please, will you forward this paper to your government and URGE them to get Monsanto’s bee killer GMO CORN, OUT of your country.
Here is the deadly sequence of steps which created our global funeral for the bees:
- Monsanto decides- that since the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis – kills a corn parasite- to insert the DNA sequence from that bacteria IN to their GMO corn.
- The BT in the corn pollen causes an immune system response (rather like triggering a sneeze) in the bees- similar to if they had eaten the BT directly – also causes holes and porosity in the gut.
- During the summer- the bees have enough protein to tolerate the immune ‘sneeze’ response- and still learn navigation … BUT during the winter when protein ( pollen) is in rather short supply in the hive- bees had evolved a survival response. IF a bee’s immune system was threatened in Winter – then the hive was best served if it was eliminated. The way this works – is that the protein normally invested in learning and remembering complex navigation requirements- has gone into immune reaction- and so – those bees – immune challenged – get lost trying to get back to the hive. (Rather like the older people of the Eskimo’s who simply don’t show up at the next igloo in the march – during Winter).
- This accounts for the facts:
- CCD – Colony Collapse Disorder was originally called: Fall Dwindle Disease – because the bee disappearance almost always is worst just as Winter sets in.
- It also explains why the few dead bees who are found- have the same blackened & porous guts- like bees responding directly to the Bt.
- It also explains why the global bee die-off generally followed the spread of GMO corn.
- Circulate this WIDELY
- Demand your universities and government replicate the proof- measure the immune response of bees to GMO corn pollen – vs non GMO – note how HARD this is to do now that Monsanto’s GMO corn has completely and illegally swept thru Mexico for example – simply by pollen drift
- Run, don’t walk – to demand your country eliminate GMO corn – before it is too late!
