As a health-conscious person, you already know that GMO foods can be harmful because they’re contaminated with toxic pesticides. You know they’re wildly controversial. And you might even know that over 26 countries have total or partial bans on GMOs over public safety concerns. . So like anyone who values their health, you take steps to avoid GMO (genetically modified organism) foods by choosing organic or looking for a non-GMO label on what you buy. . But what most people fail to realize is that GMOs can be found in more things than what you find on food shelves. In fact, you still may consume GMOs several times a day without even realizing it. . That’s because low-quality supplements are filled with GMOs. It’s the dirty little secret of the vitamin industry. . Learn more in our blog post, "Are Your Supplements Tainted with GMOs?"

Earth Day, April 22, reminded me we need insects and bugs whether we like them or not! Unfortunately, their numbers are declining by up to 75% worldwide due to insecticides and pesticides. I’d hate this little favorite (only the good ladybugs!) to disappear but there’s a greater problem than we realize. #earthday #insects #bugs #insecticides #pesticides
Pernille once got a bug in her margarita.  Paper collage 1 of the serie Creeps.  Flying insects are disappearing. I am asking myself: Why don't we care more?  They are a vital part of the ecosystem, providing food for animals and playing a vital role in agriculture.  We will miss them when they are gone.  #insects #loveinsects #bee#insecticides #climatechange #care#caremore
Going, going... gone. The use of Neonicotinoid Insecticides has risen, while during the same period beneficial insects, like ladybugs, have declined by 2/3rds.

Private cooking lessons today! Best part? Got to eat it too. 👍🏻😁 Thanks Kevin and Deborah for your patience! (See last pic) #megusta #ihelped On a slightly unsettling note Deborah has been living in Peru for 3 years now, she used to live in a town in Argentina but decide to leave due to the high levels of insecticides in the water. Resulting in many sick people and deformed babies. Source of the bad stuff is Monsanto, a large agricultural corporation which brings us westerners cheap and consistent vegetables and fruits. Trough selective breading and genetic mutation the crops survive the nasty stuff whilst the rest dies. As it’s sprayed from planes many villages and springs get caught in this cloud of poison. An area nine time the size of The Netherlands can now only grow their crops 😢 #monsanto #agriculture #needmoretaste #gmo #notgood #insecticides #modernworld @cookingclassesbygreenpoint
A single drop of #seawater #magnified 25x. That's right, #justonedrop . I can't begin to fathom the amount of work these little critters do for the planet, that we don't even know about! As humans, we often strive to know every little detail about life, about other creatures' lives. Simply put, we can't ever truly know. The gifts we are given everyday are innumerable and far more #exquisite than what we often realize.  Keep doin you, all you powerful #organic #microscopic beings!  And humans, let's keep our waste out of the waterways and tributaries that bring it straight to our precious ocean. Let's take responsibility for ALL of our actions and choices, and make sure no #pesticides , #insecticides , #nutrients or #chemicals ever enter #ourwaterways . #ourplanet deserves more than that! . #reallife #waiwai #mniwiconi #waterislife #waterissacred #microlife #magnifica #akicita  #protecttheaina  #protecttheocean  #waterkeeper
Thiamethoxam is a neonicotinoid insecticide. It works by disrupting the nervous system of insects.  Neonicotinoids mimics the action of acetylcholine. They activates the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors on the neurons of insects, causing persistent and uncontrolled firing of neurons, resulting in paralysis and death.  #science #chemistry #biology #thiamethoxam #neonicotinoid #neonicotinoids #acetylcholine #acetylcholinereceptor #acetylcholinereceptors #insecticide #insecticides #nicotinicacetylcholinereceptor #nicotinicacetylcholinereceptors
Sustainable pest-control strategies are already available, cheaper and more effective, while more commonly used neonicotinoid pesticides are failing to increase crop yields — and inflicting serious damage to birds, pollinators and other insects, the basis of agriculture productivity!⠀ ⠀ “This study should be the final nail in the coffin for these dangerous pesticides here in the U.S.,” said Lori Ann Burd. “It’s mindboggling that while much of Europe and Canada are limiting the use of these poisons, the U.S. EPA is considering expanding their use across millions of acres.”⠀ ⠀ Learn more (🔗 in bio) and speak up against our over-reliance on neonics by commenting on the @epagov's reviews this week.⠀ ⠀ #dontkillmybuzz #neonics #insecticides #pesticides #danger #agriculture #banneonics #noneonics #banpesticides #chemicalfree #savethebees #bees #savethebirds #protectpollinators #integratedpestmanagement #croprotation #biologicalcontrol #biodiversity #savetheenvironment #environment #environmentalism #environmentalscience #science #research #factbased #policy #sustainable #scottpruitt #epa
Evidence gives us plenty of reasons to cease the use of imidacloprid, yet not all of the nearly 800,000 comments on the @epagov review are against harmful insecticide. 😖 Let's push the EPA and pesticide companies to recognize the facts and market safer alternatives. ⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio to browse what people are saying — then weigh in to tip the comments in favor of the bees! ✍️🐝 ⠀ ⠀ #neonicitinoids #neonics #insecticides #pesticides #pestcontrol #poisons #toxic #danger #warning #banneonics #noneonics #noinsecticides #insecticidefree #banpesticides #pesticidefree #chemicalfree #savethebees #bees #keystonespecies #indicatorspecies #protectpollinators #protectbees #protectourearth #science #research #factbased #policy #epa #environmentalprotection #protectourenvironment
Fleas and ticks are make a comeback...as always! Here are some thoughts on how to keep them at bay: https://www.facebook.com/rohpetnutrition/videos/1617818395001070/ 🐶🐱♥️
Don't lick Balls.  Before I got into beekeeping I was a park ranger for the whitecliffs foreshore #rye #australia. Big part of the job was spraying weeds with #roundup #glysophate .  We put up signs for a few hours but dogs and children would walk past it was heartbreaking.  When I did my chemical certification I was shocked. It is so scary the lecturer put it well "some things will kill you quickly and some things are killing us all slowly". He read the life span of different professions rangers ,gardeners ,farmers ,greenskeepers had a shorter lifespan and higher cancer rates.  Most of the students worked on #golf courses . They shared stories about how the sprayed all sorts of chemicals near golfers on the same days as people played golf. They spoke how they would watch golfers lick balls clean. The lecturer explained that in Australia golf was the most dangerous sport you could play but it will kill you slowly.  If the label says in small print it kills fish, frogs or bees these chemicals are killing you. These chemicals cause Parkinson's disease  and cancer. Avoid #herbicides #hormones #insecticides #fungicides.  Adam Scott don't lick balls. Please share this and let other golfers know not to lick balls . Licking balls is killing you. #monsanto is killing you. #savethebees #beethecure
#repost @beesponsible  Evidence mounts against commonly-used pesticides: "In 2016 and 2017 alone, scientists published at least five peer-reviewed papers reporting that honey bees exposed to neonics are less able to fly, to forage and to fight off disease than unexposed bees." ⠀ ⠀ See the many specific reasons why @nationalwildlife says we need to nix neonicitinoids to protect pollinators, along with ways individuals can help via the link in our profile. ⠀ ⠀ #dontkillmybuzz #nationalwildlifefederation #beesponsible #neonicitinoids #neonics #insecticides #pesticides #warning #pestcontrol #banneonics #noneonics #noinsecticides #banpesticides #pesticidefree #chemicalfree #savethebees #protectbees #givebeesachance #bees #honeybees #wildbees #solitarybees #bumblebees #protectpollinators #wildlifegarden #beegarden #pollinatorgarden #gardenforwildlife #organicgarden

You might remember, as a kid, getting out of the back of the car after a long journey to find the windscreen covered splattered in bugs? Or the swarms of moths that would flutter frantically in swarms in front of the headlights at night? Well, you might also have noticed that these little events rarely happen anymore. There’s a reason for this, and it’s kinda scary. Insects are dying out on a mass scale across the globe. This is mostly due to a combination of pesticides and habitat loss, which are being used totally irresponsibly, turning farmland into a wildlife desert. Studies have revealed flying insects in some nature reserves across Germany have declined by a shocking 76% in the last 27 years. The mass reduction of insects goes far more unnoticed than most of the bigger, more iconic animals in our @_undertheskin print series, but they cannot be forgotten. Because at the end of the day, they make up the foundation of life. If they go, we do too 🐞
