(Collective-Evolution) Recently, the European Commission decided to not renew the approval for a pesticide that has been linked to declining bee populations, which will effectively ban Bayer’s insecticide, thiacloprid.
If you haven’t yet heard, Bayer is effectively the GMO giant, Monsanto, as they acquired the company in September of 2016. The majority of the EU has banned other pesticides as well, essentially coming from the same company.

The recent findings also compliment a study published last year at Colorado State University that discovered the same thing, that bee’s love cannabis. The recent legalization of hemp in the United States seems to be having a very positive effect on multiple bee populations.

Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killing organophosphate. Organophosphates trace their roots back to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents” that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarin. Dow Chemical—the company that helped bring the world mustard gas during World War I and napalm and Agent Orange during the Vietnam war—is the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos-containing insecticides.

(Natural News) The goal of most genetically modified crop “engineers” is to embed genes of toxins into edible plants so that toxic weed killer won’t kill the food as it grows.
