NaturalNews endorses GMOs as solution to bee crisis

Here we go again, folks. Recently Natural News published an article titled “New, all-natural pesticide unveiled by scientists – and it won’t kill the bees!“

Good news on the honeybee front — a team of scientists in the UK have created a biopesticide made from spider venom and plant protein that may provide hope for the endangered pollinators.

A study published in the research journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B states that the experimental, nontoxic biopesticide Hv1a/GNA is “unlikely to cause detrimental effects on honeybees.”

Let’s just take a little peek at the source document – “Proceedings of the Royal Society B,” shall we?

Recombinant GNA, and the fusion protein Hv1a/GNA were produced in the yeast expression system…

So, according to Natural News, genetic engineering, cloning and mutagenesis are “all natural.” So much for labels. Need I say more?
