The link between bees and human mortality has been established, and it can be called an apocalypse (Wolnemedia)

Wolnemedia (Poland) published an article on the new Harvard University School of Health and partners’ new study on pollinators. Reducing the number of pollinators actually removes healthy food from the global diet and thus increases the number of chronic diseases that cause increased mortality. The analysis also showed that low-income countries lost significant amounts from agriculture due to insufficient pollination and lower yields, representing a loss of 10 to 30 percent of the total value of agricultural production.
“The results may seem surprising, but they reflect the complex dynamics of factors underlying food systems and populations around the world. Only through this kind of cross-disciplinary modeling can we better define the scope and impact of the problem,” said co-author Timothy Sulser.
