A Halo Over Finland



SPECTACULAR HALO OVER FINLAND: Looking at the sun can be a wincing, painful experience. Yesterday in Finland it was a rare delight. "On June 24th, multiple arcs and rings of light appeared around the sun," reports Ville Miettinen of Kuopio. "What a spectacular view!" He dashed inside and grabbed his camera to record the amazing vista:

Michigan High School Students Claire & Serena Create A Mobile Organic Gardening Classroom

I would definitely encourage others to do projects like this. The best advice I can give is to be nice and trust people. People want to help. Even people who have no interest in environmental issues and no idea what you’re trying to accomplish. For instance, the men who rented us the trailer were completely dumbfounded about why these two teenage girls wanted to buy their trailer and fill it with dirt. But they gave us a great deal, taught us how to drive a trailer, and helped us when we got a flat on the Lodge (Detroit freeway)," said Erwin.

12 Health Benefits of Lemon Water: A Simple Health Tonic by Elizabeth Renter


12 Health Benefits of Lemon Water: A Simple Health Tonic

by Elizabeth Renter

Natural Society,   26 June 2014


Adopting healthy habits like eating healthful foods and exercising can seem difficult, but sometimes it can be quite easy. There are some health tips and wellness habits we can easily change in a day’s time to improve our health absolutely. Things like drinking water with lemon are easy to implement and can provide many health benefits.

In addition to offering mind-boosting hydration, lemon water provides immune-boosting vitamin C and antioxidants. It is a great way to wake up and an excellent way to wind down your day. It’s low in calories and is a good source of potassium and pectin. Perhaps best of all, lemon water is easy to make and lemons are easy to find.

Benefits of drinking warm lemon water include:


  • 1. Immune-boosting benefits of vitamin C help ensure your body can fight off illness.
  • 2. Despite lemons being acidic, they can help keep your pH balance in check.
  • 3. Pectin fiber is great for your colon and digestive health.
  • 4. Encourages the production of bile.
  • 5. Dissolving uric acid, lemon water can help reduce pain and inflammation of the joints.
  • 6. Good for your skin.
  • 7. Helps to maintain eye health and protects against eye disease and damage.
  • 8. Helps replenish the body after a tough workout.
  • 10. Helps detoxify the liver and kidneys.
  • 12. Can reduce the occurrence and aid in the treatment of urinary tract infections.

While many people think of ice cold lemon water as the best refreshment, warming the water is actually better. When you drink warm water, your body doesn’t have to work to raise the temperature and it can soothe you like a cup of tea or wake you like a cup of coffee.

Adding warm lemon water to your daily routine is a small and simple step towards better health. It doesn’t require any expensive additions or restrictions, merely adding a tasty fruit to your daily hydration.

US Government Doing Monsanto's Dirty Work Financed By Taxpayers

Foto: The U.S. Government Has Tied El Salvador $277 million Aid Package to Monsanto’s GMO Seeds. In recent weeks, the U.S. has been pushing the El Salvadoran Government to sign the second Millennium Challenge Compact. One of the main conditions on the agreement is allegedly for the purchasing of GM seeds from Monsanto. At the end of 2013 it was announced that without ‘specific’ economic and environmental policy reforms, the U.S. government would not provide El Salvador with $277 million in aid money through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). It is now clear that by ‘specific reforms’ the MCC means reforms that allow GM crops and their associated pesticides to be forced on El Salvador’s Government and citizens. Is it a coincidence that the MCC delayed its initial agreed aid payments following the announcement by the El Salvador Government that they were banning the use of Glyphosate (Roundup) and 52 other dangerous chemicals in September 2013? Is it a coincidence that the glyphosate ban was overturned?

Denmark: Journalism Like This Could Ultimately Cost Lives by Sanne Maja Funch



Denmark: Journalism like this could ultimately cost lives
By Sanne Maja Funch
 
 Sane Vax., Inc.,  21 June 2014
 
Critical journalism about the HPV vaccine is a battleground with reporters and the drug company Sanofi Pasteur MSD each in their own corner of the ring. While journalists are talking about a company that controls the angles and spreads fear among the sources; the drug company believes that journalism is so unfair that girls are at risk of dying because they do not dare to be vaccinated.
 “My impression was that Sanofi was indirectly the reason why these sources would not stand up. My sources told me that they were afraid of Sanofi.” Jacob Sheikh, journalist, Politikken.
Tuesday November 26th 2013 at approximately 6 am, the documentary journalist Kristian Laursen receives a disturbing message. The message is from his boss, Paul Anthony Sorensen, at the production company Eyeworks. Kristian must be in Paul’s office as soon as he arrives.
 
Kristian Laursen is hired to make a documentary that asks critical questions about Gardasil, the vaccine against cervical cancer offered to girls in Denmark as part of the childhood immunization program.

The documentary is already sold to the national TV station, TV 2, and the intention is that it should be transmitted in January. Kristian Laursen has worked on the project since August. In a few days recording will start.
 
But, that morning Paul Anthony Sorensen throws a bomb: The program is cancelled. The decision is his alone. TV 2 has already been informed. In other words, something incredible has happened: A production company pulls the product that it has already sold and invested about 100,000 DKK in. Kristian Laursen leaves his boss’s office in shock.
 
Why was the documentary about Gardasil killed so abruptly? There are different descriptions as of today. Paul Anthony Sorensen explains that he dropped the program because the subject was too hard to dig out within the frame that was given.
“The facts and figures, the documentary was sold on, turned out not to be 100 percent precise. It was a question of forming the complete picture with the right medical professionalism within a short deadline. We could not do that.”
On the other hand, Kristian Laursen, emphasizes that the research was spot on. But he admits that the contents was difficult. It was not made easier by the fact that journalism about the HPV vaccine has a long historical tradition of harsh criticism.
“If only I made a tiny little mistake, I knew that I would be vilified and ridiculed and dragged to the Press Council and perhaps even in court, because there are so many critical eyes in the pharmaceutical industry and public authorities. It was all we were against. It is WHO that validates this vaccine. You feel almost like you are up against the whole world,” he says of his concern for the impact the journalism could have had.
It is true that critical journalism about the HPV vaccine is a battlefield, where the parties are highly confrontational. Last year, first the Newspaper Politiken and since The Newspaper BT wrote a series of articles about the vaccine manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur MSD and the doctors and authorities that backs up Gardasil.
 
Today the journalists tells about an industry that monitors their research, casting doubts on the sources, scares others – and in one case sending a harassing email.
As a journalist I have never ever experienced, that there are so many emotions in a case and so little facts,” said Heidi Pedersen, health reporter at BT.
But as a representative of the other side of the table, Mads Damkjaer is shaking his head. He is senior market access manager at Sanofi Pasteur MSD, which sells Gardasil in Denmark. He states that from his point of view, he sees some journalists who do not understand a difficult topic. But, actually he thinks most of the reporters pursuing sensation, no matter how weak the story is.
I personally think that journalists are whining. If they see it as a journalistic obstacle, that they are made aware that they bring outright false information to the market and use sources that are very involved in things, I am extremely concerned,” he said.
Jacob Sheikh, working at Politiken writes about the HPV vaccine from February to May last year. His articles focus on how a number of doctors recommend the HPV vaccine, while working for Sanofi Pasteur MSD. A few articles are also about adverse events as for example dizziness, pain and long-term illness, as some girls claim that the vaccine has caused.
 
Jacob Sheikh already knows when the project starts, that he should write critically about Sanofi Pasteur MSD for a while. Therefore, his first move was to visit the company. He meets with Mads Damkjaer and has a good talk about how the pharmaceutical industry works.
 
The first time Jacob Sheikh ha  an unusual experience is when he is working on a story about a 13-year-old girl who dropped out of school, allegedly because of adverse events. Jacob Sheikh explains that he gets a phone call from Mads Damkjaer before the article is printed. He lets the reporter know that he knows what he’s working on. So he warns about the girl Simone, that Jacob Sheikh are writing about.
He tried to make a doubt in me about this source’s credibility and whether she could be used to illustrate anything” This warning amazes the reporter:
 
I have not seen an approach like this before. I have never before seen a party source cast doubt on an experience source. Typically, a party source will stick to his own.”
‘Surveillance’ is the word that Jacob Sheikh uses when he describes the pharmaceutical company’s interest in his work. In telephone conversations Jacob Sheikh is asked to explain what the article angles are, what sources he uses, when the deadline is and why he writes as he does.
It surprised me that they were so persuasive, and you got to be an idiot for not being able to conclude that they are so persuasive, because they in some degree want to be able to control the agenda,” he says.
Several doctors contact Jakob Sheikh while he writes about side jobs in the medical world. Jacob Sheikh’s got a point, they explain. But there are far worse examples out there. Two to three sources mention a brochure. It rests with the practitioners and informs those waiting on the benefits to be vaccinated against cervical cancer. But the booklet is hardly unbiased information. Because it is written by a doctor who has a side job at Sanofi Pasteur MSD, and is paid by the pharmaceutical company.
 
Politikken would like to bring this story. The problem is that nobody will put their name on the criticism. Too much cooperation is going on across the hospitals and the industry. And criticism can turn to the criticals like a boomerang, is the explanation:
My impression was that Sanofi indirectly was the reason why these sources would not stand up. My sources told me that they were afraid of Sanofi. I saw it as a very clear self-censorship from these doctors. They did not want to start a spiral of actions that could hit them back  , says Jacob Sheikh.
BT’s Heidi Pedersen start writing about the HPV vaccine two months after Jacob Sheikh has put an end off his series of articles in the newspaper Politiken.
 
The first articles are published in late July 2013 and is about the vaccine’s potential adverse events. Heidi Pedersen did not contact Sanofi Pasteur MSD in her research. Her work is based on the National Board of Health News “Nyt om bivirkninger” (News about Adverse Events) and it’s the Danish National Board of Health), she contacts for an interview about the problems described.
Heidi Pedersen calls the National Board of Health’s Press Office Wednesday, July 24th in the afternoon and gets an appointment about an interview. It is a huge surprise to her, when the next morning she is called by the LEAD Agency, Communication Bureau for Sanofi Pasteur MSD. The consultant explains that she knows what Heidi Pedersen is writing on. She offers to explain out the facts.

Heidi Pedersen is stunned: “I’m used to the agencies that are sending me material. But I’ve never had them call me and say they know I’m sitting with a story about this or that. There, they try so much to control my angle.”
 
Heidi Pedersen asks the consultant to confirm in writing that it is from the National Board of Health, she knows about BT’s upcoming articles.
 
Confirmation lands in the inbox at 10:10 that morning. The email also contains some information about the HPV vaccine. The content is a refutation of the story about the vaccine’s adverse events.
 
The consultant refers consistently to adverse events as “rumors” or “myths” and explains how the myths are originated from America’s powerful but absolutely arbitrary anti-vaccine lobby.
It is a sobering case that illustrates the anti-vaccine lobby efficient process from Canada to the Danish parliament,” the LEAD Agency writes among other things with regard to the health minister having been questioned about the subject.
 
That Sunday lands BT in newspaper stands across the country with the following cover: “422.000 has been vaccinated with the HPV cancer vaccine. Doctors warn them about adverse events”
The same afternoon, Mads Damkjaers response receives in BT’s chief editor Anders-Peter Lose Landert’s inbox.
 
Mads Damkjaer has two main anchors. First, he believes that it is wrong when Heidi Pedersen writes that there is an increased incidence of adverse events. The disorders reported as adverse events are not increased in numbers after the vaccine was introduced. Second, the source selection is biased Mads Damkjaer states. Heidi Pedersen is among others citing the private association Vaccination Forum and the doctor Claus Werner-Jensen. But the former is part of the anti-vaccine lobby. And the last is closely related to the same association as a commentator, says the criticism.
 
On the bottom line is that journalists like Heidi Pedersen’s are “coverpage horny stupids,” who “read facts and figures as hell is reading the Bible,” Mads Damkjaer wrote and ends with the following reminder:
Despite the fact that the media is under so much pressure and eventually one can feed pigs with unemployed journalists, then a disaster as Heidi Pedersen is sitting on a coveted spot as a journalist on a national newspaper, despite the fact that neither diligence, fairness, nor source criticism can be counted among her virtues.”
Heidi Pedersen describes herself as a perfectionist. She is passionate about her substance. The email is an attack on the professionalism, she carefully cherishes, and therefore it is very unpleasant.
 
However, both the increase in adverse events and sources are presented correctly, she answers in a detailed email to Mads Damkjaer. In addition, the industry’s representative did not quite check on source criticism itself.
 
Heidi Pedersen forward Mads Damkjaers mail to the doctor Claus Werner-Jensen, whose credibility he doubts. But Claus Werner-Jensen refuses to be put in the same boat with the association Vaccination Forum. He picks up the phone and demands an explanation from Sanofi Pasteur MSD.
At that time I hardly knew what Vaccination Forum was, so I thought it was to push it too far. It triggered me, I did not think it should go unchallenged” Claus Werner-Jensen said.
Heidi Pedersen writes a few articles about the HPV vaccine later this year. Mads Damkjaer follows up with a new, more subdued mail, where he again points out errors and try to affect Heidi Pedersens sources.
 
Also the journalist at the magazine “Journalisten” noticed the coincidence of sources across media and countries when Gardasil is criticized. Is the media source criticism good enough? Heidi Pedersen thinks several seconds before she answers:
“I think it was frustrating when the sources did not dare to step forward. I have experienced that. I could not get the doctors who actually sat with the girls in front of them to step forward and tell the National Board of Health that it was possibly the vaccine’s fault that the girls felt like this.”
In other words, according to Heidi Pedersen, she has been at pains to track new voices in the debate. But like Jacob Sheikh, she experienced that the sources are afraid. They say that criticism can connect them with doctors in special circles that are labeled as radicalized idiots. In addition, the doctors fear for their relationship with the industry. The magazine “Journalisten” has been in contact with a source in the medical environment, confirming these claims.
 
Sanofi Pasteur MSD is located in a streamlined building at Lyngby Station. Here Mads Damkjaer denies the journalist’s interpretation of certain conditions. He apologizes for others. But basically he maintains his criticism.
 
First Mads Damkjaer rejects that Sanofi Pasteur is practicing any kind of influence on doctors who are airing criticism of Gardasil, “I am not aware of a single doctor, we should have contacted and asked, for example, to re-evaluate their opinion or recommendation ” he states.
 
He also claims that he has never contacted the newspaper, Politiken’s Jacob Sheikh about his source Simone: “It is not correct. We have never done this. We would never call and malign an experience source, because it is something very sensitive” he says and is also surprised that Sanofi Pasteur MSD’s interest in Politiken’s articles can be mistaken for monitoring:
It’s completely standard to ask about sources and angles, if someone calls and asks if you want to participate in a critical article.”
Other conditions call for an apology. It is the tone of the mail, Mads Damkjaer sent to Heidi Pedersen after her front flapping about the vaccine’s adveres events. Mads Damkjaer has just returned from driving on holiday in Italy when the stories are printed. The front text acts as a red rag for tired eyes.
It was the most serious article that is hammering out: 400.000 girls at risk. I think there should be reacted very quickly and efficiently. Besides I had been sitting 22 hours behind the wheel of a car, so it explains the tone and I apologize many times. It was not okay.”
He gives the same reason to the failed prosecution of the doctor Claus Werner-Jensen.

It’s during the same holiday that LEAD Agency contacts Heidi Pedersen after she has asked the National Board of Health for an interview. Also this tip Mads Damkjaer dries the mystery of. He explains that Heidi Pedersen asked the National Board of Health a question about the vaccine’s use in Japan. The National Board of Health contacted Sanofi Pasteur MSD, which is supposed to know most about such a case. The workflow is quite common.
 
Mads Damkjaer sensed what was coming, and he asked his agency to contact the reporter while he was in Italy himself.
 
Henrik G. Jensen, department manager at the National Board of Health, confirms this process.
On the other hand, he believes that it is a problem that Sanofi Pasteur MSD utilizes the approach to influence Heidi Pedersen.
I was annoyed that they sent my request on to their marketing department. Why on earth did they do that? It was a concrete and relevant question she asked,” Henrik G. Jensen recalls.
He also don’t believe that it is unbiased information when the LEAD Agency dismisses adverse events like rumors and myths in the material they send to Heidi Pedersen afterwards:
Myths and rumors are not the same as adverse events and facts. You have to be fearful of your words. It is important that the communication is factual. In The National Board of Health, we have chosen a strategy that states that all information about the adverse events should be told” Henrik G. Jensen says.
By the way Mads Damkjaer sticks to his methods and his criticism. The sources are often selected from biased doctors, scientists or simply activists in the field, both in terms of Jakob Sheikh and Heidi Pedersen’s articles, he said. Moreover, there are errors in facts, especially when it comes to the extent of adverse events, and those, Sanofi Pasteur MSD needs to address.
For both sources and error jumps from medium to medium. Each time, they live a bit stronger.
Yes, I consistently go out and correct errors to the extent that it can be done. It is a strategy because the media lives as they live. The main instrument for research is gradually Infomedia. Therefore, if the wrong information is allowed to flourish, they will become a self-explanatory truth” he said.
Your agency dismisses adverse events The National Board of Health recognizes. Is your communication not just as unsettled?
It’s probably a polemical tightening, but the fact is that adverse events have been allowed to fill in to an extent that is not at all proportional to the adverse events.”
During the interview Mads Damkjaer recall’s a motto. Several times he says, that he “has nothing against critical journalism, it is the uncritical” that’s the problem.
And according to Mads Damkjaer the health journalism has a problem with the quality:
I would really like to think that the biggest problem is that it is a difficult area, which is hard to understand. But I think it is because it has become okay to do research until you find the two sources that says what you want the story should sound like. This is how I see it, unfortunately.”
Mads Damkjaer estimates that Sanofi Pasteur MSD has sold 5.000 fewer doses of Gardasil than usual, because of the media buzz around the vaccine. This means that about 1.300 girls have refused to be vaccinated based on the writings. If the statistics are following the reality, 17 of these women will develop cervical cancer, and 5 will die he explains:
Maybe I tighten it. But my tension is closer to reality than the talk about the adverse events, and that I maintain. Journalism as this ultimately risk to cost lives.”
And thus ends the story where it started. At Eyeworks and Paul Anthony Sorensen, who in the last hour pulled the plug on a documentary that was sold to, and almost featured on TV 2. The research Paul Anthony Sørensen gave free of charge to TV 2 because he actually thought there was a reason to examine the vaccine further. TV 2 does not want to disclose to the “Journalist” if they plan to go ahead with the story.
 
But unlike Eyeworks, TV 2 has the resources to lift the story. For it is precisely in the tension between a difficult subject and a zealous industry that journalism about medicine encounter problems:
Medical Histories are very complex. In fact, they require that you ally yourself with doctors and not only let journalists do the research. I was afraid that we would potentially create panic in the light of research, I did not know if it was truth. But it requires such enormous resources to meet these stories, that the industry often will draw the longest straw, “says Paul Anthony Sorensen.

Comments from a parent of a girl disabled by the HPV vaccine:

It is a completely unacceptable discussion. To judge from their own attitudes and beliefs. Where are the facts?

EMA in January prompted Sanofi Pasteur to explain the increased prevalence of POTS, meningitis and inflammation of the central nervous system after HPV vaccine.

WHERE ARE THE DATA WITH PROOF THAT THIS IS NOT THE CASE?

The “activists” referred to, are the poor souls who, like myself, followed throughout childhood immunization program. And paid the price in the form of disability. Telling one’s story is suddenly turning you in to be an activist???

0.4% of Danish women to die of cervical cancer is in sharp contrast to the official figures. In 2012 it was 1.9 per 100,000

The same official figures also say that the risk of dying from cervical cancer before 75 years of age is 0.2%

Another misrepresentation of reality from the National Board of Health and Mads Damkjaer.
Stick to the facts and tell us what the numbers really are.

How can you deny the facts that more than 1200 persons reported more than 4500 adverse events?

How can you deny the fact that Gardasil has more than 10 times higher frequency of side effects than other vaccines in Denmark?

Admit that thousands of Danish girls suffer from a disease that had its onset after their HPV vaccine. No matter, if the vaccine caused it or not – nobody wants to help them.

Is the lack of help a cover to avoid the truth coming through?

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin - A Governor of The People.



IN VERMONT, the GMO battle between the people and corporate greed rages on. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed GMO Labeling Bill H.112 into law. But the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), made up of companies like Monsanto, Syngent...a, Kellogg's, Nestlé, and General Mills, seems to be allergic to the democratic process - and fearing that consumers will reject genetically engineered foods if labeled - has sued Vermont to overturn the law. This suit is in addition to their attempts at the federal level to outlaw states' rights to pass laws mandating GMO labeling.

Vermont will fight for the people, but they will need help. The state has created the
Food Fight Fund VT to accept donations from anyone who wishes to financially contribute to help VT mount a powerful defense against the GMA lawsuit. Learn more and donate here:

Six Powerful Cancer-Killing Plants You’ve Probably Never Heard Of by Nick Meyer


Six Powerful Cancer-Killing Plants You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

by Nick Meyer

Alt Health,   16 June 2014


As the interest in natural health has piqued, more and more people have begun to seek natural alternatives and supplementary herbs and plants that haven’t quite hit the mainstream.

Considering that there are many tens of thousands of plants that still haven’t been adequately studied yet for their healing potential, there still exists the potential for amazing new natural remedies that science hasn’t discovered yet.

Some of the science on the following six plants is not as advanced as other top natural remedies like turmeric, garlic, and ginger for example, but it’s all quite promising, especially when it comes to their cancer-killing potential.

It should be noted that this information is for informational purposes only and does not constitute medical advice. That being said, these cancer-killing plants are definitely worth looking into, and asking your naturopathic doctor about to see if they may be worth supplementing with.

1. Brucea Javanica- There’s nothing less exciting in the world of plants than a shrub, or at least that’s what the world thought before learning of the amazing benefits of this southeast Asian and northern Australian variety.

It’s long been used in Chinese medicine for its anti-cancer properties and has shown its effectivness in trials against breast cancer, bladder cancer and even leukemia.
Not bad for a boring little shrub.

2. Graviola- A tree that grows mostly in South America and produces the Internet-famous soursop fruit, Graviola extracts are one of the most potent cancer-killing substances that are not quite as well known as they should be.

Studies at Purdue University showed its ability to selectively kill cancer cells and the Cancer Research UK organization also noted that it can kill some types of liver and breast cancer cells that are resistant to certain chemotherapy and drug-related treatments.

“But there haven’t been any large-sale studies in humans, so we don’t know yet whether it can work as a cancer treatment or not,” they said (well, “Why not, what are you waiting for?” a reasonable person might say).

3. Paw Paw- This tropical-looking plant and fruit is similar to a papaya (only green) and grows in the Midwest of the U.S., believe or not, and perhaps even more remarkable is that it may be the strongest anti-cancer plant on both American continents according to the same large-scale in vitro Purdue study that also tested Graviola.

Unfortunately (stop me if you’ve heard this one before), no large-scale human trials have been undertaken just yet.

4. Fucoidan- The best anti-cancer plants aren’t only relegated the land: the sea plant fucoidan is also one of the strongest out there.

The March 2011 issue of Phytotherapy Research suggests that fucoidan stopped some lung cancer cells from proliferating and triggered the death of cancer cells (aptosis, a programmed natural procedure in the body). Another study from the October 2011 issue of the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules also found that it is capable of killing lung cancer cells while boosting white blood cell counts.

Most of us wouldn’t recognize it if it were growing in our backyard pond, but that doesn’t it’s not nice to know it’s there if we need it!

5. Artemisinin- Made from the sweet wormwood plant, this is another longtime Chinese herb that appears capable of seeking out cancer cells while leaving virtually all of the healthy ones unharmed (the ratio was about 12,000 to 1 according to one study).

6. Lei Gong Teng- You may know this one as the “thunder god vine,” if you’ve been paying attention to the myriad Internet heath memes making the rounds, and yes, this one is in fact pretty strong against cancer cells, at least in preliminary studies.
It is also adept at inducing cancer cell apoptosis according to this study, with specific anti-leukemic effects. It does have possible side effects to be aware of like the other items on this list so be sure to do your homework first with a professional.
That being said, it’s good that we all know more about these potential life savers now. So, what’s the next step?

How about some actual large scale human trials to find out the truth!

The Use Of Pesticides On Bee-Attracting Plants Needs To Stop Altogether- Susan Kegley, Phd

 
Foto: NATIONAL POLLINATOR WEEK IS JUNE 16 - 22, 2014. Take action to help SAVE THE BEES & ALL POLLINATORS.

Home Depot, Lowe’s Home Improvement and Orchard Supply Hardware are marketing and selling plants as “bee-friendly” when, in fact, many of them are bee-killing. Neonicotinoids are systemic insecticides applied as seed treatments, and are taken up by the roots and distributed through the entire plant. Neonics harm bees even at very low levels. Stop buying plants from these stores until they remove neonic-treated plants from their nurseries. How can you be assured that you’re growing plants that are truly good for the bees and other pollinators? Buy certified organic plants or grow your own plants from certified organic seeds. SAVE THE BEES.
