    This article was eye opening. Bees preferring nicotinoid pesticides over untreated food sources according to the article.

    Yes, frightening! Poor bees! And the addiction impairs their cognitive and navigational skills. Not good news.

    It’s so bad that fish in the greater lakes are bursting with SSRI’s in their brains from the water, antibiotics and pesticides are in all of our food, and plastic/petroleum chemicals like phalates are in the air we breath. They found plastic in the Mariana Trench and on uninhabited islands millions of pieces of plastic garbage. The fat lady is singing so loud right now it’s all I can hear some days.
