Meals We Would Miss If Bees Disappeared

Meals We Would Miss If Bees Disappeared

A silent killer has been affecting our food system: The decline of pollinators. According to most available research, bees and other pollinator animals are disappearing due to a complex variety of factors including Colony Collapse Disorder, a global bee epidemic first identified in 2006. The cause is somewhat unclear, but experts have cited varroa mites, malnutrition, pesticides — including a class called neonicotinoids — and even cellphones as possible causes.

The Huffington Post displays a stunning visual of how some of our most beloved meals would change if we no longer had bees.
