Bee Season?

as you may know, in addition to being a foodie, I am interested in the politics of food, the slow food movement, and being aware of what big corp. business is doing that is bad for us all.

Now Germany too is losing their bee populations at catastrophic rates.

and some further indications that genetically modified agricultural products may be one of the causes. Read more here.
