FDA now sees raw milk consumers as criminals when they transport raw milk across state lines – Pete Kennedy

From Health Impact News Daily:

By Pete Kennedy, Esq.

“In an unsurprising response to questions submitted to it by a federal judge, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has asserted that any commercial transaction involving the transport of raw milk for human consumption across state lines is subject to the agency’s jurisdiction and is illegal.

Colony Collapse Disorder and pesticides — British government investigates link between bee deaths and farm chemicals

From Beyond Pesticides.org

(Beyond Pesticides, April 1, 2011) A British government scientist on Wednesday announced that he has ordered a review of a class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, to determine what effects they may have on bee and pollinator health. Neonicotinoids, such as clothianidin and imidacloprid, have come under intense scrutiny recently due to concerns regarding their toxicity to honeybees, which are essential for a secure food supply in their role as crop pollinators. This has led some to suggest that chemicals such as these could be contributors to honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Continue reading
