    Just think how much food we eat with high fructose corn syrup in it. Kind of scary isn't. The next generation will be a bunch of babbling idiots that wont be able to find there way home. Maybe this is what they want in Washington. Sorry I do not want to get into politics.

    What's more "scary" about eating high fructose corn syrup as compared to honey?

    Not ironic at all, it's intentional. Ad agencies' software scans the website content and display ads that have a similar theme.

    This study was extensively discussed on all the major bee forums and has the reputation of being one of the worst studies ever done. If you read the actual study you will see that it does not support the claims it makes.

    Many beekeepers here and on other forums pointed out the numerous flaws. For a thorough review, see randy Oliver's comments at www.scientificbeekeeping.com.

    Reading the actual study made me even more uncomfortable accepting third part reports as truth on any subject than I already was.

    Just finished reading Randy Oliver's commentery on the study and would say this kind of leads us back to ground zero. Would love to see a debate between both parties. That would be an open debate with facts and not egos so the truth will begin to come into full light.

    Only if you are poisoning it before you eat it.

    Well, first it has Bt toxin in it, which has not been in the human diet in large amounts before. Then it has neonics in it, which, once they bind to your neurons, they never let go, then we have a product that is not allowed in food in the rest of the world because they don't think it's fit for human consumption...

    I don't know how anyone can read that page...I try all the time and last on seconds before my eyes are really straining to stay open. For me, it's like looking at the sun or something.

    Too bad, because I would spend some time on there. I did get a kick out of his requirements for picking up nucs.
