Neonicotypos

“Scientists on the Global Taskforce on Systemic Pesticides concluded that the widespread use of neonicotinoid pesticides is affecting earthworms, birds and bees and the quality of water and soils. … Bayer and Sygenta [sic] are suing the European Commission to lift its temporary ban on the three neonicotinoids. ‘The Commission must stand form against these bully-buy tactics.'” (http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_round_up/2790530/bees_victory_in_pesticide_battle_bayer_libel_action_dismissed.html)

This is worrying evidence that the toxic effect has already spread to humans.
