Leaked document: EPA knowingly approved bee-killing pesticide

NaturalNews) A Colorado beekeeper recently obtained a leaked document revealing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) knows a popular crop pesticide is killing off honey bees, but has allowed its continued approval anyway. Despite opposition from its own scientists, EPA officials first gave the a-okay to Bayer CropScience's toxic pesticide clothianidin in 1993 based on the company's own flawed safety studies. But now it has been revealed that the EPA knew all along about the dangers of clothianidin and decided to just ignore them.

By now, most people know that honeybees are dying off at an incredibly disturbing rate. Colony collapse disorder (CCD), a condition where bees stray from the hive and never find their way back, is nixing millions of nature's pollinators every year. Previous studies have pinpointed various environmental toxins as the primary culprits, including toxic pesticides like clothianidin (http://www.naturalnews.com/028429_c...).

And the leaked document, which was written by the EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, explains clearly that "[c]lothianidin's major risk concern is to nontarget insects (honey bees)" and that "[a]cute toxicity studies to honey bees show that clothianidin is highly toxic on both a contact and an oral basis." The letter was in response to a request from Bayer to have clothianidin approval expanded for use on cotton and mustard in addition to its other approved uses.

Why am I not surprized? Didn't they approve aspartame, PBAs and fluoride too?

They are the Fed of food and health.

no wonder i don't see bees like i did a couple years ago and like i did when i was a kid in the 50's. their used to be honey bees all over my yard in the past  but this past summer i can't recall seeing one single bee. it makes me sick. it's a monsanto world now .especially with s.510 being sneaked into law. harrp , fish dieing , birds droping out of the sky , a man made oil disaster , corexit spraying killing humans and fish . what next ?
