That was a Russia Today story, so obviously fake news in an attempt to destabilise the west.

Or is it fake?

"Claims that glyphosate has a negative impact on honey bees are simply not true. No large-scale study has found any link between glyphosate and the decline of the honeybee population,” a Monsanto spokesperson said in a statement


So there you go - it's true, glyphosate is killing bees, other insects and flowers. Plain as day, Monsanto/Bayer said it and I quote them word-for-word above.

will transnational corporations ever be able to concede that their products are harmful to the environment, if such honesty would mean losing many millions, even billions of dollars in profit? Tragically, it seems that mankind’s level of common sense has not yet reached such a level of development


Monsanto said that Glyphosate didn't cause cancer but they've just been saddled with a huge punitive damages payout in court because it was found guilty of causing cancer. So, on the basis that what Monsanto says is diametrically opposite to the truth, they have just admitted guilt!!! Wink
