James Lovelock, PhD in Medicine, Chemist, Independent Scientist, Environmentalist. Bruno Comby, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - International in France describes the discovery of very tiny amounts of neonicotinoids in honey. This was made possible by the 1958 invention of the electron capture detector by Professor James Lovelock in the UK. Dr. Lovelock has been a leading figure in the environmental movement along with Stewart Brand and many others. Tiny amounts of all elements may be found throughout the universe. Tiny amounts of man-made chemicals may be found in most places on Earth. At what point does a tiny amount of something become pollution or toxic? Paracelsus, the Father of Toxicology answered that question in the 1500s, "All things are poison and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing not a poison."
