Bee Organic before too late!

2 years ago,
when I was at Shen Shi'an's talk
at the Holistic Wellness Symposium 2009,
I was first educated how
bee could be a sensitive indicator
to environmental toxity.

When more and more chemicals are used as pesticides
under the name of "efficient food production to feed the expanding human population"
we are actually worsening the production sustainability day by day.

The bees population has been reported slumping dramatically
due to the abuse of pesticides
and few people know
that bees actually contribute to majority (90%) of pollenation in the nature.
Without the bees, simply there is no fruit, no grain and no propagation of vegetation.

This ties to the emphasis of supporting organic agriculture.
When discussing organic food,
many a time people overly focus on the personal health perspective,
but pay little attention to the environmental health which is equally important.

When insufficient effort is put into maintaining the environmental health,
we are not only facing the consequence of unhealthy food, but also,
the crisis of food supply (due to lack of pollenating bees dying from harmful pesticides),
then the rocketing food prices and
eventually may be the compromised survival of humanity. recently initiated a petition to ban harmful chemicals being used as pesticides
to prevent further decline of bees.
You may want to do a bit of well wishing to Mother Earth via

Well regards,
