New study confirms that over 75% of the world’s honey is contaminated with harmful insecticides and pesticides: That means BEES are affected and so are human beings…one more reason to go ORGANIC
The month of October has beckoned and with it the persistent hot spell…both fauna and flora are dying…do you know what else is dying albeit slowly from insecticide and pesticide “poisoning”?
- A new study, just published this month of October confirms that over 75% of the world’s HONEY is contaminated with harmful insecticides and pesticides: This was published in the Science magazine here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2017-10-06/pesticides-found-in-75-per-cent-of-honey-sold-worldwide/9011510 and http://science.sciencemag.org/content/358/6359/109.full

- And guess what damage these pesticides and insecticides are doing to the IQ of our children? They are damaging their brain development resulting in lower IQs and other neurological deficits: Here is the evidence: http://www.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/17661-organic-foods-backed-by-landmark-report-warning-pesticides-far-more-dangerous-than-was-thought
What is the way forward?
- A policy paradigm shift is urgently needed, to encourage consumption of safer and healthier ORGANIC foods. This will trigger global DEMAND for organic food businesses resulting in a shift to “planet and people friendly” practices that embrace agro-ecological organic agriculture. http://www.globalagriculture.org/fileadmin/files/weltagrarbericht/IAASTDBerichte/IAASTDExecutiveSummarySynthesisReport.pdf
