Re: University Student Seeking input on Neonics
Whats missing from this thought is the consequences of the "precautionary principal, particularly related to neonics. These new pesticides REPLACE one that were destroying water and very well know to be deadly to bugs and people at alarming numbers. There is the part they avoid mentioning. The also fail to tell you of the consequences of not heaving good pesticide control, which is higher food cost, and many more acres farmed to create the same amount of food. If the principal mentioned is applied to its full extent, then technology and advancement stop. It is quite literally impossible to prove anything is "100%" safe for everyone and everything. the links of neonics to CCD are completely bogus, simple truth CCD is gone, and Neonics use is still rising.
