    Barry wants us to stay on topic, so I'll say Honeybee colony losses and CCD.

    There has not been any,

    yet generalized statements are still made against GM tech causing Honeybee colony losses and CCD

    seems to me, the benefits of GM cropping tech is being weighed against made up problems

    Ian:

    I wouldn't say that colony losses and CCD being caused by GM technology is a 'made up' claim.

    It seems to be that you can find studies that either support or refute those claims if you take the time to look for them.

    I think the technology can, and sometimes does, cause colony losses. I don't think that it causes CCD.

    But, so what? I not an EU policymaker.

    But so far no links between GMO technology and colony loss.... right? I distinguish GMO tech from neonic seed coating..... at least in this discussion.

    If I read the one post on the previous page, Monsanto has bought the company that was doing the research. This is what happens in a MONOPOLY it seems. I have heard that there are several law suits going on now regarding all of this. Are there perks? Sure. Are there problems? Sure. With change in any arena there are both benefits and drawbacks. That's called "progression". Persnoally I'd like to go back w/o this "progression" and am seeking to do that, but Obviously I have NO power nor desire to do anything about all of this. I honestly don't even understand most of what is going on here, but I have also researched articles from good doctors and nutrationalists that say that GMO isn't good. So My question is still the same as before (I'm sorry to go back. Have I missed the answer?) Does anyone have any idea of the nurtitional differences of the pollen from GMO vs Non GMO plants? Lets say soy. I know there's nectar there, but how about the pollen? How about other plants?

    OK... this is where you point how where we can also read these articles..... who wrote them.

    hpm:

    You know that I can come up with the links when the spirit moves me.

    But, there's no real issue here without the neonic contaminated talc.

    That's what happens if you focus only on the transgenics.

    I could probably come up with a relationship between RNAi, RNAI supression in Honeybees, and a possible increase in CCD. But, that's not a current issue.

    Agreed. I have seen nothing to even hint at GMO tech causing colony loss or CCD.

    Contaminated Neonic Talc dust is a separate issue, which reminds me of sprayer/applicator malfunctions of the old days.

    Yup, made up claim
    WLC, how about you actually go find one of these credited studdies and,... oh right, there are none,
    lets look for the answer to delber's question then,

    >>Does anyone have any idea of the nurtitional differences of the pollen from GMO vs Non GMO plants?<<

    anyone?

    I would say yes, but the thread is about GMO products causing CCD.

    I've always considered neonic seed coats to part of the package for GM products.

    what does neonic pesticide have anything to do with GMO seeds? How are they part of the package? They're apples and oranges. If anything GMO could feasibly be a replacement of neonic-based pesticides and other pesticides. Bayer makes imidacloprid. Does Bayer as a company have anything to do with GMO seeds?
