France Becomes The First Country To Ban All Five Pesticides Linked To Bee Deaths

In May 2018 the EU banned three of the significant pesticides implicated in the collapse of bee populations. Clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam are now prohibited for use on crops.

However France has gone a step further and set the high bar in the effort to save the bees. Given the importance of pollinators to nature and the survival of the biosphere, this could not happen too soon.

Studies have reported that the neonicotinoid pesticides attack the central nervous system of insects, leading to loss of memory and homing skills, in addition to reduced fertility. Bees that cannot find their way back to the hive quickly die. However the pesticides have also been shown to affect butterflies, birds and other pollinating insects.

There is a reason why France is ahead of the field in this regard: The “bee killing” pesticides were tested first on French fields in the 1990’s – and the French farmers witnessed first-hand the catastrophic effects that occurred in 1994; describing “a carpet of dead bees”. 400,000 bee colonies died within days – yet the story was buried under a layer of corruption and distorted science.

Since that time, activists and manufacturers have battled to control the situation. We covered this story in full in a previous post: Overwhelming Evidence Linking Neonicotinoid Insecticides To Massive Die-off Of Bees And Songbirds

The new move is certain to be celebrated by ecologists and sets an example of protection of nature that the rest of the world needs to follow.

Alarming New Scientific Study Finds Elevated Toxic Arsenic, Lead And Cadmium In 47% Of Fruit Juice Brands

Troubling new results have been published (Jan 2019) by Consumer Reports regarding well known consumer brands of fruit juice, indicating potentially harmful levels of cadmium, lead, mercury, and inorganic arsenic (the type most harmful to health).

The scientific study tested 45 consumer brands of packaged fruit juices, typically “from concentrate”, in four popular flavors apple, grape, pear and “fruit blends”. 45 juices represnting 24 national, store, and private-label brands sold in the U.S. were tested.

Twenty-one out of the 45 juices (47%) tested had concerning levels of cadmium, inorganic arsenic, and/or lead. Interestingly, organic juices did not fare better than non-organic in this particular test.

The dangerous effects of heavy metals are very well established. Children and adults exposed to these toxins may be at increased risk of cancer, diabetes, lower IQ and other mental and physical problems.

Heavy / toxic metals are found throughout the environment, in increased quantities since the industrial revolution – and the challenges of identifying the source of the pollutants is quite difficult; the global food distribution chain is complex and “juice from concentrate” often contains juices from more than one origin. Nonetheless, it should be possible to test batches of juice prior to blending. This is a problem that can be solved: If some companies can achieve low levels, so can others.

Here is the link to Consumer Reports’ full report, including a chart of which juices are considered more and less safe:
