A recent article in NaturalNews claims that last year there were leaked documents exposing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) illegitimately approved toxic pesticide clothianidin for use, while being aware it might kill bees.
Now, the article says, there's a new study by Purdue University that confirms that clothianidin is actually killing off bees, and that it's spread has become systematic in the entire food chain.
The entire report is available online via PubMed: Multiple Routes of Pesticide Exposure for Honey Bees Living Near Agricultural Fields
The article goes on to warn about the consequenses of all this:
Without bees, which are now dying off at an alarming rate due to exposure to clothianidin and various other insecticides and fungicides, one third or more of the food supply will be destroyed, including at least 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables that rely on bees for pollination.
The claim is that if people in US don't do something to stop the bees from dying, at least one third of the food supply (in the US) will be destroyed. Because bees are dying. Which is the caused mainly by clothianidin. Which is in use because of EPA's failure or corruption.
Is this information accurate? Or does the article misrepresent the situation somehow? Is the study legitimate?
