    doing test with bees in the field to test a societal collapse is a much different type of study then say using lab rats to test toxic levels of chemicals for humans. That's why I think Dr Lu...

    Re: Tobacco Ringspot Virus in Honeybees.

    Re: Tobacco Ringspot Virus in Honeybees.

    FIFRA and the FDA, aren't these completely non-related independent and separate entities in the federal bureaucracy? I'm still not connecting the dots.
