    of course many keepers also blame the pesticides.

    What are we talking about again?
    Let's hijack the thread just a tad bit longer... because... it's really interesting these things about the bees. Not only do the US feed HFCS, they feed HFCS from genetically modified corn! So, why does the US have rampant use of HFCS whereas any other country doesn't? Well, the corn industry in the US is subsidized by the feds so the cost of corn remains super duper low. That's why you will find that in every single bag of dog food in the local Wal-mart the first ingredient is corn (protein booster)... except corn is not as easily digestible as animal protein... So, for a beekeeper, you have bees that need to eat. During winter, they don't make honey... so they have to eat from their food storage. Except... the commercial beekeepers sold the honey. Because, of course, they can make more money selling the expensive honey and then buying cheap HFCS to feed the bees during winter than letting the bees keep a lot of their honey...

    Interesting, huh? And yes, this is, of course, not the only problem with the bees. It's a microcosm of a jillion factors.

    Okay, we were talking about English Bulldogs with tear stains and the antibiotics in Angel Eyes (which, from what I understand, most beekeepers don't use tylosin on the bees anymore... they use something else less harmful or something).

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    On a more serious note... Disappearing bees is a huge concern. Someone said they were gonna store up honey. Better store up more than that....

    On a serious note about all of this, this was something that has always bothered me. Is our food really safe? It made me vegetarian for about 1.5 years. I still would be, but the diet made my husband super sick due to some other conditions we didn't realize he had, and now we only eat organic and local meat, fruit, and veggies.

    It's ridiculous how much corn is used. They even make wax from it to polish an apple.

    Regarding honey, I love the Really Raw stuff. They don't advertise it, but customers have reported that after calling, they did inform them that they don't feed their bees antibiotics or corn syrup.
