Matthias Wüthrich, Greenpeace ecological farming campaigner: “This study on contaminated pollen reveals the unbearable burden of bees and other vital pollinators. Bees are exposed to a cocktail of toxic pesticides. This is yet more proof that there is something fundamentally wrong in the current agricultural model which is based on the intensive use of toxic pesticides, large-scale monocultures and corporate control of farming by a few companies like Bayer, Syngenta & Co. It shows the need for a fundamental shift towards ecological farming.”
The report confirms the findings of a recent study  carried out by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). In its study, EFSA acknowledges vast knowledge gaps related to the health of bees and pollinators, including on the effects of chemical ‘cocktails’, and calls on the EU and national governments to fill this gap with further scientific investigation.
Rick Smith tried to prove toxic cocktail soup mixes kill with Human Beings, real people.
The results were sure to prove these chemicals are casuing cancer.
But the findings, the results, they were not what Environmental Defence was hoping for.
