Zeronicotinoids

“These toxic chemicals [neonicotinoids] not only harm bees, they also persist in the agricultural landscape and contaminate soils, potentially harming invertebrates such as earthworms. They are picked up by wildflowers, get into the watercourse and are linked to a decline in birds and butterflies in farmed systems.
We now know that bumblebees can’t pollinate crops effectively when exposed to these pesticides, so it makes moral, ecological and economic sense to ban them.” (http://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/article/call-to-ban-bee-harming-pesticides-in-scotland/)

What else are we going to do with 15 beezillion unemployed bumblebees?

“Honeybees and bumblebees drank more from pesticide-containing solutions, … [with] a negative impact on their motor function and their ability to collect food and forage. … The most likely reason lies in the similarity of the [pesticide] chemicals to nicotine.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/04/22/us-environment-bees-pesticides-idUKKBN0ND24220150422)

Spersticide

“Research by Harvard University found that men who ate the greatest amount of fruit and vegetables with high levels of pesticide residue had a 49% lower sperm count and a 32% fewer normally formed sperm than those who consumed the least.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/mar/31/pesticide-residue-food-sperm-quality-harvard)

Feminists applauded the report for demonstrating that libidinous males are pests.

A Bee Turn

“Despite the conclusions originally drawn by [the UK’s Food and Environment Research Agency], their data appear to provide the first clear evidence that colonies of free-flying bumblebees exposed to neonicotinoids used as part of normal farming practice suffer significant impacts in terms of reduced colony growth and queen production.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/mar/26/uk-drew-wrong-conclusion-from-its-neonicotinoids-study-scientist-says)

The new conclusion has been drawn in more of a bee-line from the results.

Whalicide

“The Japanese government rejected imports of Norwegian whale meat because tests showed samples contained pesticides … thought to play a role in causing birth defects, neurological harm, and some cancers if humans consume them in high quantities. … In the past, shipments of Norwegian whale meat have been found to be infested with bacteria and also to contain potentially dangerous levels of mercury.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/world-on-a-plate/2015/mar/23/japan-refuses-norways-toxic-whale-meat)

Despite their increasing scarcity, whaling is getting like shooting sick fish in a barrel.

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.

Mispenised

European Commission sources say that a EU paper on hormone-mimicking, endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) was buried by top EU officials under pressure from big chemical firms which use EDCs in toiletries, plastics and cosmetics.
“Scientific evidence … suggests that endocrine-disrupting effects, such as lowered sperm counts, genital malformations, non-descended testes and misplaced penis holes, are increasing.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/feb/02/suppressed-eu-report-could-have-banned-pesticides-worth-billions)

The misplaced penis holes running the big chemical companies denied any such toxic behaviour.
