Evidence of connection: Decline in Bee populations and chronic disease

Bees are responsible for providing pollination services to crops
Their populations have been in decline for several decades 
Without bees there would be significantly less produce
Produce provides micronutrients that are active in pathways that prevent disease

Medical condition one: Cardiovascular disease

Define CVD
Significant evidence exists that a diet high in produce that is dependent on pollination decrease CVD risk

Medical condition two: Diabetes

Define diabetes
Significant evidence exists that a diet high in produce that is dependent on pollination decrease DM risk

Medical condition three: Stroke

Significant evidence exists that a diet high in produce that is dependent on pollination decrease stroke risk

Economic burden

Health care cost
