I'm REALLY gratified to see this link being posted, and that people are rightfully incandescent - thank heavens it's not just us "Natural beekeeping nutters" who've noticed what's going on..........:coolgleamA:
It is horrific, and would be disbelieved as an X-files script.......

The assumption with GM maize is that bees don't work it much. However, bees will indeed work maize pollen in a dearth of other types and there has also been recorded colony losses when bees have collected poisoned guttation fluid from GM maize.

Drifting off thread a little ... We all know how certain suckers in a National Beekeeping Charity have been 'bought', well, I was reading not long ago about the Syngenta Operation Bumblebee. Sound familiar?
