This Health Food is Teeming With Agricultural Chemicals

Honey may be considered as a health food and a better alternative to table sugars or artificial sweeteners but a grim discovery confirmed what some scientists have long suspected: that honey is teeming with pesticides.

The contamination is so widespread that 75% of honey found worldwide was tainted with agricultural chemicals. Some of these chemicals are neonicotinoids, which are also harmful to the bee population. 

A new study published in the journal Science has found that 75 percent of the world’s honey is contaminated with at least one variety of a deadly pesticide. 

The study, “A worldwide survey of neonicotinoids in honey,” looked at 198 different types of honey from around the globe looking for traces of neonicotinoids – a harmful pesticide that has drastically reduced the honey bee population. reports:  Of the 75 percent containing neonicotinoids, 30 percent contained one neonic, 45 percent contained two or more, and 10 percent had four or five.
