You are right Barry. I'm sorry, but I have to wonder if a given food is good / bad for us what does the pollen and nectar cause for the bees. I have read I think in this thread or others where at least soy has proven to "keep hives alive" through a dearth last summer, but personally I would love to see studies / research on all of this. (example. . . What characteristics do the pollen / nectar have vs. Non GMO crops, and what about the end product?) Perhaps this isn't the place to discuss the "end product"?
