Many store brand foods, like Kroger’s, are heavily contaminated with glyphosate, organophosphates, and neonicotinoids.
"The EPA is routinely misusing the 'emergency' process to get sulfoxaflor approved because it's too toxic to make it through normal pesticide reviews."
"We need better guidelines for glyphosate use, especially regarding bee exposure, because right now the guidelines assume bees are not harmed by the herbicide."
"Industrial agriculture has no place on public lands dedicated to conservation of biological diversity and the protection of our most vulnerable species, including pollinators like bumble bees and monarch butterflies."
The risk neonicotinoid insecticides poses on both honeybees and wild bees as well as concerns for food production and the environment brought the EU to its announcement on Friday.
What if honeybee health was greatly affected by commonly used pesticides, causing colonies to die en masse?
Why isn't the EPA considering restricting these products instead of expanding their use?
