Bee-Killing Insecticides Banned In Europe, But Now Bayer Sues

January 14th, 2015

Environment:  Food Chain At Risk. Below, see the petition to sign, to keep bee-killing poisons out of our environment and protect environment. Neonicotinoid insecticides were recently banned in Europe, in 2014.  But now Bayer, who makes some of these bee-killers, is sueing the European Commission to have the ban overturned. Bayer and Syngenta are two of the largest companies in the world which market agricultural chemicals.  They both claim that the decision made by the European Commission to ban bee-killers is unfair. To bleat 'Unfair' somewhat weakens the severity of the issue at hand - we are not squabbling over marbles here.  The earth ...

Fragrant Organic Gardens For Birds, Bees, Beauty And Medicine

January 12th, 2015

Organic Gardening Plant plenty of Bee-Friendly herbs to feed the bees a healthy diet.  Bee Colony Collapse Disorder can be prevented by avoiding the use of toxic herbicides and pesticides, and by planting herbs which contain natural medicines. And keep some of those wonderful weeds such as Dandelion and Prunella Vulgaris, commonly called Self-Heal.  Bees love these plants, and they are so good for the soil. We are losing our traditional cottage garden flowers and healing weeds.  So make an effort to keep our valuable healing plants by planting them in your garden, and letting some of those weeds grow too.

January 12th, 2015

Dutch Government Bans Over The Counter Sales Of Glyphosphates, Including RoundUp. Mexico and Russia have already banned Monsanto's 'RoundUp' herbicide, and other Glyphosphate products.  France and Brazil are also planning to follow in the footsteps of Mexico, Russia and Holland, by banning Glyphosphates.

This move  to restrict the use of Glyphosphate-containing herbicides shows great promise for our future health. I ...

Controlling Your Allergies In New Zealand

November 8th, 2011

Toxic Chemicals In The Form of  Vaccinations, Agricultural Herbicides, Pesticides and Artificial Chemical Fertilizers - These are the OBVIOUS reasons that people get allergies.  Yet they are rarely   mentioned in public discussions by doctors and specialists in allergy control. Why is that, you may ask - Well, there is a lot of  money to be made by doctors, specialists, and drug companies, who are likely to give you yet another drug or concoction of some sort, ostensibly to 'help' your allergy symptoms.  If the real cause of allergies and other problems such as high or low blood pressure was ...

Bees Killed By Insecticide

January 29th, 2011

New Pesticide is Destroying Hives Read also:  http://merrilynhope.com/colony-collapse-disorder/ About Neonicotinoid Pesticides: In an article published just over a week ago, details of research, which proved bees are being threatened because of a new insecticide, were revealed.  This research was done a year ago by the bee department of a US government research project. Why weren't these results made public two years ago, when the findings were made?  Most likely because Bayer, the drug and chemical giant who first made the neonicotinoid class of insecticides, does not want to impair its huge profits.  Somehow, they have managed to keep the new revelations under wrap - ...
