Colony Collapse Disorder and High Fructose Corn Syrup Custom Essay

[pewslideshow slidename=anim2]

My paper should be aurgument based pointing out the negative effects of farmers feeding thier pollinators HFCS instead of raw honey. The following is a summary of the proplem I would like to present a research paper on. Beekeepers feed their hives over the winter, when the bees are not working pollinating crops. Because of its cheaper expense, beekeepers, like processed food manufacturers, have moved away from supporting the bees and the baby bees (grubs) with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) instead of honey. Through amazing bench work, researchers have shown that bees fed HFCS do not activate the same genes as bees fed honey. The HFCS bees do not turn on their immune genes (that is they have less ability to fight off infection) and do not turn on the enzymes needed to break down pesticides (and are more likely to be harmed or killed by pesticides that normally would have no or limited effect). Moreover, the bee bread, the food given to the baby bees, is not the same and may effect bee development. Another possibility is that the bees are suffering from being forced to specialize (in pollinating huge numbers of the same plant) instead of being left generalists (pollinating many different plants, one after another). If this is true, the very thing that leads to use of this particular honey bee is what has caused the problem. While it is likely that there are several factors involved in Colony Collapse Disorder, it is interesting that many seem to point to problems within commercial agricultural (use of HFCS and huge singular crop production) as playing a role in the honey bee problem. I would like the sources to be current and up to date the last paper I bought used information from the 70’s and I had to practically redo the whole thing.
