SECRET STUDIES of Bayer and Syngenta Reveal: Their Pesticides Are Responsible For Dropping Bee Population

Just this September, seven species of bees were added to the endangered species list. These bees live primarily in Hawaii, the same place that have seen an increase of health issues in humans related to the mass use of pesticides created by Monsanto. (Hawaiian agricultural workers have seen increased rates of cancers, Parkinson’s disease and depression).

If people are this affected by this pesticides, what effect can it have on a small body of a bee?

While the official statement is that the bees are disappearing due to natural causes, we have seen the catastrophic results of how chemicals annihilate huge bee colonies. Just this August millions of bees dropped dead after one night of aerial spraying of a chemical to fight Zika mosquitoes in South Carolina.

With all the bees dying due to chemicals, one has to wonder, is there more to the story government officials are not telling us?

We do not yet know if they simply do not have any more information right now, or if they simply aren’t telling the truth. But we do know someone who has clearly been lying.

Bayer. Syngenta’s Bee-Killing Lies Exposed

It has been revealed that Bayer (who just merged with Monsanto) and Syngenta, two massive agrochemical companies, lied through their teeth,  repeatedly insisting that no study they’ve done has shown that their products are harming the bees.

In reality, studies from both companies reveal that their pesticides do serious damage to the honeybees. This research was left unpublished and purposefully hidden from the general public, as fate would have it. Greenpeace has obtained the secret documents through the Freedom of Information Act, reported The Guardian.

The pesticides in question are neonicotinoid insecticides (Bayer’s clothianidin and Syngenta’s thiamethoxam), the most commonly used insecticides. They were banned in the EU in 2013 for use on flowering crops, but are widely used otherwise, especially in the United States.

Most importantly, these chemicals harm wild bees, which most studies do not take into the account. While the honey bee population seems to be high, it is due to commercial bees.

Scientists are saying that the wild honeybee population is almost non-existent. Pesticides have greatly contributed to this decline, as the population of the wild bee kept falling with the growth of industrialized agriculture.

Scientists do not forgive Bayer’s and Syngenta’s silence on the issue.

“Given all the debate about this subject, it is hard to see why the companies don’t make these kinds of studies available. It does seem a little shady to do this kind of field study – the very studies the companies say are the most important ones – and then not tell people what they find,” said Prof. Dave Goulson, at the University of Sussex.

Sign the Natural Resources Defense Council Petition to stop Neonic Pesticides:

“America’s bees are dying at some of the highest rates ever, struggling to survive a deluge of toxic neonic pesticides unleashed by multinational chemical giants like Bayer and Monsanto. Yet the EPA continues to drag its feet on protecting these vital pollinators. And bees can’t afford to wait for the next administration.”
