Creating Waves of Awareness

Honeybees are Protectors of Humanity and Guardians of the Planet

(NaturalNews) Albert Einstein once said, "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." Through their production of an elite class of superfoods and around-the-clock pollination efforts that touch nearly every corner of the planet, the influence of honeybees is directly linked to mankind`s ability to live in abundance and, perhaps, even survive.

Pollination is the process that fuels the germination of plants. It is through this process that plants are able to multiply, grow, and flourish. Honeybees are responsible for the vast majority of all pollination, and experts estimate that one third of the world`s food supply relies directly on the honeybee`s prolific capacity for pollination.

Honeybees are master craftsman that display all of the elements of a genius at work: delicate precision, incredible instincts, and a work ethic unparalleled by almost any other living creature. Just one honeybee can pollinate 30 flowers a minute. Here is a small sampling of the fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts grown in tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate climates that rely on the pollination efforts of honeybees:

Almonds, apples, apricots, avocados, beets, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cashews, celery, cherries, coconuts, cotton, cucumber, grapes, lemons, limes, mangos, onions, papaya, pears, soybeans, strawberries, and watermelon.

In addition to pollinating, honeybees produce some of the most nutritionally comprehensive superfoods in the world, and they are the only insects that produce foods for human consumption. They include bee pollen, honey, propolis, and royal jelly. These superfoods are directly linked to longevity, healing the body and overcoming disease, improving athletic performance, increasing cognitive abilities, and an overall enhancement in the quality of life in those who consume them.

People have known about these benefits for thousands of years. Russian research has shown that beekeeping is the longest lived profession in the world. Considering that it is rare to find a beekeeper that doesn`t consume some of the products from the hive, the connection to longevity is obvious. Even bee stings have been used to help with arthritis (bee venom therapy) and beeswax is used in the production of candles, soaps, and other useful products. There is also evidence that the Greek philosopher Pythagorus was a voracious consumer of honey, and bee products were used throughout the early games in Ancient Greece by Olympic athletes. Even Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, is thought to have used bee pollen over 2,500 years ago as part of his healing protocol.

If you want to improve the quality and increase production of your fruit, vegetable, or flower garden, try keeping bees on your property next to your garden and see what happens. You`ll have not only your own superfood production factory, but also an additional army of super pollinators eager to catapult the yield of your garden into the stratosphere. Honeybees have the unique ability to both feed and heal the people of the world.

The EPA and USDA approved the latest pesticide from Bayer - a neo-nicotenoid. The scientists at USDA warned that this pesticide would cause massive bee deaths, but they were ignored and the pesticide was approved anyway. The spate in CCD is mainly caused by this pesticide and the solution is to use Nicotinum in potency as the closest similimum. Tabacum could be another solution, as it also contains nicotine. In Canada, beekeepers are already testing it and I await eagerly the results.

There are hundreds of different descriptions about the honeybees' and bumblebees' deaths but if we take a closer look on today's happenings around the world, or let's just research the petro-chemical and agricultural industries. Soon their responsibility will be evident in this terrible phenomena. We can read controversial news, naturally. These news are written by ghost writers or in some cases scientific journalists, bloggers who are/were paid by these megalomaniac elitists (CEOs, Corporate Legal Representatives, etc.). We are living the Biblical phorphecies. These prophecies can be found even in other spiritual scriptures. The recent natural cyclic change of the Earth IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for the bees' population deaths! Not even the so called false "Climate Change". Bees are here for many millenia. They are survivors just like the scorpions. If bees are dying, that's a very serious issue and the reason is easier to find out than we would think as it's a global issue. Governments' appropriate agencies or/and agricultural and apiarist professionals have enough knowledge, experience to prove the WHY.

So, GMOs & GE and their business entities' products are one of the main dangers in this phenomena.

This article below is good example how a simple bee-keeper can tell the WHY.

" Honeybees in Danger, Sunday 12 April 2009 by Evaggelos Vallianatos. "
Industrial, pesticide-dependent agricultural practices in the United States are creating a death trap for the honeybee and threatening the human-bee symbiotic relationship forged over millenia.

When I was teaching at Humboldt State University in northern California 20 years ago, I invited a beekeeper to talk to my students. He said that each time he took his bees to southern California to pollinate other farmers' crops, he would lose a third of his bees to sprays. In 2009, the loss ranges all the way to 60 percent.

Honeybees have been in terrible straits.

A little history explains this tragedy.

flower for several days. The foraging bee, if alive after its visit to the beautiful white flowers of almonds, for example, laden with invisible spheres of asphyxiating gas, would be bringing back to its home pollen and nectar mixed with parathion.

It is possible that the nectar, which the bee makes into honey, and the pollen, might end up in some food store to be bought and eaten by human beings.

Beekeepers are well aware of what is happening to their bees, including the potential that their honey may not be fit for humans.For millennia, honeybees lived in symbiotic relationship with societies all over the world.

The Greeks loved them. In the eighth century BCE, the epic poet Hesiod considered them gifts of the gods to just farmers. And in the fourth century of our era, the Greek mathematician Pappos admired their hexagonal cells, crediting them with "geometrical forethought."

However, industrialized agriculture is not friendly to honeybees.

In 1974, the US Environmental Protection Agency licensed the nerve gas parathion trapped into nylon bubbles the size of pollen particles.

What makes this microencapsulated formulation more dangerous to bees than the technical material is the very technology of the "time release" microcapsule.

This acutely toxic insecticide, born of chemical warfare, would be on the surface of the

Moreover, many beekeepers do not throw away the honey, pollen and wax of colonies destroyed by encapsulated parathion or other poisons. They melt the wax for new combs: And they sell both honey and pollen to the public.

Government "regulators" know about this danger.

An academic expert, Carl Johansen, professor of entomology at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, called the microencapsulated methyl parathion "the most destructive bee poisoning insecticide ever developed."

In 1976, the US Department of Agriculture published a report by one of its former employees, S. E. McGregor, a honeybee expert who documented that about a third of what we eat benefits from honeybee pollination. This includes vegetables, oilseeds and domesticated animals eating bee-pollinated hay.

In 2007, the value of food dependent on honeybees was $15 billion in the United States.

McGregor also pointed out that insect-pollinated legumes collect nitrogen from the air, storing it in their roots and enriching the soil. In addition, insect pollination makes the crops more wholesome and abundant. He advised the farmer he should never forget that "no cultural practice will cause fruit or seed to set if its pollination is neglected."

In addition, McGregor blamed the chemical industry for seducing the farmers to its potent toxins. He said:

"Pesticides are like dope drugs. The more they are used the more powerful the next one must be to give satisfaction" and therein develops the spiraling effect, the pesticide treadmill. The chemical salesman, in pressuring the grower to use his product, practically assumes the role of the "dope pusher." Once the victim, the grower, is "hooked," he becomes a steady and an ever-increasing user.

No government agency listened to McGregor.

The result of America's pesticide treadmill is that now, in 2009, honeybees and other pollinators are moving towards extinction.

In October 2006, the US National Research Council warned of the" "demonstrably downward" trends in the populations of pollinators. For the first time since 1922, American farmers are renting imported bees for their crops. They are even buying bees from Australia.

Honeybees, the National Academies report said, pollinate more than 90 crops in America, but have declined by 30 percent in the last 20 years alone. The scientists who wrote the report expressed alarm at the precipitous decline of the pollinators.

Unfortunately, this made no difference to EPA, which failed to ban the microencapsulated parathion that is so deadly to honeybees.

Bee experts know that insecticides cause brain damage to the bees, disorienting them, making it often impossible for them to find their way home.

This is a consequence of decades of agribusiness warfare against nature and, in time, honeybees. In addition, beekeepers truck billions of bees all over the country for pollination, depriving them of good food, stressing them enormously, and, very possibly, injuring their health.

Evaggelos Vallianatos, former EPA analyst, is the author of "This Land Is Their Land" and "The Passion of the Greeks.
