If you haven’t yet been terrified by the disappearance of honeybees in the U.S. and abroad, you should be. Though it’s not clear if Einstein really said it, the quote “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left,” even if hyperbolic or falsely attributed, ought to make everyone sit up and take notice. The facts are that we do depend on bees for food, and their population has dramatically declined, whether it be due to cell phones, cancer, or immuno-deficiency. Not even Monsanto or ConAgra has the power to bring back the bees.
For more terrifying food truths, watch The Future of Food. I’m curious if Veace did yet; I swore when she did she’d change her mind about the medical industry being the most contradictory and corrupt segment of business–though it comes in right on the heels of the food growers/producers/manufacturers.
I’ll be here, chewing my nails, waiting for the end of the world.
