The pesticides used to produce GMO crops are toxic to our health and the environment. Some of the biggest victims of this barrage of pesticides are also some of our most vital species: bees.
Bees – which make possible one of about every three bites of natural food we eat – are dying at an alarming rate. President Obama’s administration says it recognizes the need for swift action to protect bees, but the Environmental Protection Agency’s action plan won’t do enough to restrict the use of pesticides that are toxic to bees.
Initially neonicotinoids were praised for their low-toxicity to many beneficial insects, including bees; however this claim is now being questioned in the scientific community.
New research points to potential toxicity to bees and other beneficial insects due to low level contamination of nectar and pollen with neonicotinoid insecticides used in agriculture.
Although these low level exposures may impact some bees’ ability to forage for nectar, learn and remember where flowers are located, and possibly impair their ability to find their way home to the nest or hive.
What can YOU do?
Learn to read and understand a label.
Demand accountability from politicians, the DNR and other aerial sprayers, manufacturers and your next door neighbor's yard service company.
Tell the politicians and manufacturers that you do not want a QR code on a label - this is unfair to those who do not have a cell phone that works with QR codes, therefore it is a form of discrimination.
QR code labeling is really no labeling at all – it’s discriminatory, incredibly burdensome, and even a threat to our privacy.
Tell the politicians and manufacturers to just state whether or not the ingredients on a product are poisonous or have genetically modified ingredients. Only purchase products that are 100% organic - not 95% with hidden ingredients that are part of a proprietary formula.
Just have them LABEL everything.
BTW - our Coconut Organics food product line is 100% organic.

Learn radionics and how to avoid the need for pest control.
A pesticide does not differentiate between a beneficial bug and a non-beneficial bug. Just avoid needing a pesticide or an herbicide by getting the right minerals into your soil.
