I do not treat "activists" claims as sound scientific proof.
The more noise made with "activist" claims being touted as proof,the less I hear.I think anyone betting the whole of bee problems on GMO products are doing serious harm to the effort to solve this problem. Has Europe been magically cured and now in the bee export business where gmo's have been banned and are used no longer?
And I also think people need to realize that as population increases farmers need to produce more to feed these people. Heirloom varities are okay for the home gardener,but down they work well for wholesale feeding of the population. Another demand on corn acreage is the enviromental push for ethanol so at some point you have corn to ffed beef and other animals that people eat or corn to fuel cars. The same ear of corn will not do both.
