Clearly the US does not see the product as a "bee death pesticide". There are many experts who examine these products to be sure that they will not harm our US agriculture. It is likely that the link between product and bee death has not been substantiated and the relationship has not been confirmed by good science.

Of course the US would approve something EU does not. It is all about money here and not what is good for the people or environment. Without bees, the food chain will go to hell and it wont matter what Monsanto does.

It is often all about PERCEPTION rather than fact. Often one's understanding is based on how OTHERS perceive something. You might benefit from taking a rational scientific approach rather than accepting what others have 'told' you in attention-getting, poorly researched articles and blogs. Why assume that because a company is successful it has done so at some huge environmental risk. That is not a good strategy for a company or for the people who work there.
