Study Finds Bees ‘may be developing form of animal Alzheimer’s’ Due To Aluminium In The Environment

Bees may be developing a kind of animal Alzheimer’s disease because of exposure to aluminium in the environment, scientists have suggested.

A new study has found that the young of bees already show high amounts of aluminium contamination which may be causing mental dysfunction and playing a role in the decline of bumblebee populations.

Because of industrial discharge aluminium is the Earth’s most widespread pollutant and is already known to be responsible for the death of fish in acid lakes, forest decline and low crop productivity.

Previous studies had suggested that when bees forage for nectar they do not actively avoid nectar which contains aluminium.

  1. Given the fall out from Geo-engineering programs , this report is very scary for the survival of bee population and humans !

  2. South Canterbury Sky Watch says:

    Very well worth a listen. (Video below)
    While media, MAINSTREAM keep us in the dark, we must sift thru and find info, find info for our own well being. These clowns, that frequent our te-lie-visions every evening, everyday, they too are inhaling this crap. Maybe that money bag they stand on, is too much to give up, even though they and their own families are being affected by fallout and other effects geoengineering is dishing out, all over the globe.
