has anyone studied beeks that had CCD and how they run their operations.  Maybe it should be call  mono disease.  You know. mono culture.  Kind of like scurvy. 

I dont think its the cause but I think mono culture is bad for be health.

It makes sense. Not only would they get whatever "goodies" are to be had in diverse plants, but they wouldn't get as loaded down with possible toxins or just junky stuff in a very small variety of plants.
