Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.
- I'm sure there is anecdotal evidence for just about anything. But the
fact of the matter is that the man who did the research on cell phones
and CCD has publicly stated that his own research was dead wrong. I have
tried the cell phone tests you described and the bees did not seem to

- Hell, I'll sign your petition. One of the things I think is lacking here is HANDS ON EXPERIENCE. (1st.) I come from a LONG line of Tobacco Farmers (Like since 1633, Yeah that stuff kills people but it's why I'm alive today.) and trust me when I tell ya that the nicotine by products of today have come a long way since the old BLACK LEAF 40 PESTICIDE (Believe that's the Grandaddy of all of the Nico-pesticides of today.) from the last century. (2d) I've YET to hear or read of any one checking (CCD) dead bees for this family of pesticides. In the age of the internet, if someone has a link on this lemme know, it kinda throws up a FLAG. (3d.) Before folk think I'm one of those Greeny/Tree Huggy Types I'd like to throw this in as a sign of my openness to other viewpoints. I went to the N.C. Pesticide School this week, took the tests for Commercial Licenses, and Lawn and Turf Licenses. Rubbed elbows with several folk that, well let's (Kindly) say were mathamaticly challenged on things like dosages and application rates. One can only imagine what's going on out in the feild!! (4th.) Anytime ya got something and ya DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, you have to go down the line and figure out what it isn't. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------The only PROOF that I've read so far on this has come from the Pesticide Industry, and ya know what their spin is gonna be.
