For years now I have written on subjects relating to my life growing up in a country setting. The joys, hardships, all kinds of things, that, well-made a fellow feel good. Any ways, here is what I would like you, the readers to take a look at, my feelings on things that is going wrong here in Canada, but not only here, in the USA too. I would like to say a few words on what is happening here in our world today relating to our Honey Bees, Health, and the Food we eat.
First off growing up on a dairy farm, then moving on to a fruit farm I have seen and witnessed a lot of happenings relating to the use of pesticides in our country. I won’t get into a major discussion here, but I would like to touch on a few items.
First off, the Honey Bees in my eyes are dying because of the systemic pesticides they are using. A systemic pesticide moves inside a plant upward and outward in other words from the roots to the flower on top, which in turn poisons pollen and nectar in the flowers, which in turn insects ingest and get covered with the pesticides while feeding on the plants, and after a short time they then start to slowly die. This is the reason we are seeing the bees disappearing from their hives. They in reality aren’t disappearing, they are dying before they get back to their hives. Simple as that and for the life of me I can not see why folks have not been able to pick up on this. If I was to guess I would say that we are being dictated to by the huge corporations that these chemicals are safe. They are not safe at all.
Why are more folks getting cancer than ever before, along with a lot of other diseases. Again it’s right there in front of you, it’s all the
Poisons that is in our food. There is much more happening with the GMO seeds genetically-modified (GM) crops — and the pesticides and herbicides that accompany them, and once they have been unleashed I am afraid the outcome will cause great harm to us everything living on this planet.
Folks want that magic pill to cure everything of a sliver, to the worst of all diseases. It isn’t going to happen, and the proof is out there, just a lot choose not to see what is right in front of them. I have been trying to tell folks for years now of what is happening, speaking at different places, writing articles in papers, on television, radio and magazines. Has it helped, well in some ways yes and in some no.
Today folks minds are easily swayed into believing in all kinds of
things, and unfortunately most isn’t is good for us.
Just the other day I went for a drive up Highway 522 heading west to Highway 69 and what do I see? All along the side of the road plants all dead. Spraying took place killing everything in site. Now I see in the paper they are planning to spray selective herbicides around Nipissing &District to control the undergrowth. Selective herbicides kill specific plants leaving others unharmed. Sounds impressive but it is not.
First off in my eyes there is no reason on earth that this should be done. Don’t they realize that eventually this herbicide will get into our lakes, streams and eventually into our drinking water. Not to forget about all the critters and insects that eat these plants that they are going to kill or make darn sick, including ourselves.
To do what they are doing doesn’t make sense to say the least and if we don’t soon stand up for what is right, we will all pay dearly in the coming years. It is happening now and in the future it will get worse, if we don’t do something, now.
Cancer will expand and if let go we will all perish. I know some would
say I am a skeptic. I am not though, I am just an old farmer and columnist that grew up, through the best of times and the worst of times and have seen it all, to date anyways.
Well I have had my say, I wish I could do more, but it seems I am limited, but I will keep on talking to folks and doing what I can, hoping maybe, just maybe a few of you will take up the stand too.
One last thing. Here is one of many visions that came to me one night while sleeping.
