Re: Summer bees vs winter bees?
Chlorine is a deadly chemical. Fluoride is another deadly chemical. Chlorine is used because of a maze of pipes traveling underground along a city with another maze of pipes carrying poop. Many people have wells that are not chlorinated and these people are probably more healthy than those drinking chlorinated water. Wiled animals don't drink chlorinated water for the most part so the bottom line is chlorine is a necessary evil but a evil non the less. A certain percentage of people are getting sick from chlorinated water but it is a small percentage and we can always treat them with more deadly chemicals to save a few of them. Tough luck for the rest. That is pretty much the attitude right now with neonic's.
