7 Reasons to be Mad About Honey

7 Reasons to be Mad About Honey

  1. Bees produce honey as food for themselves for winter. Honey isn’t made for human consumption.
  2. Bee keepers replace honey with a sugar substitute that is detrimental to bees health.
  3. Bee keepers breed bees to produce more honey, this narrows their gene pool and makes them more susceptible to disease.
  4. Honey bee numbers are reducing the number of natural pollinators.
  5. Bees are forced to produce excess amounts of honey, in the same way that cows are forced to produce excess milk.
  6. Beekeepers will rip out the wings of the queen bee, making it impossible for them to leave the hive.
  7. Queen bees are forcefully artificially inseminated.
