Hey, here I get in the stores a package with shelled California walnuts. Are these California walnuts and almonds contaminated?

Treated with lots of chemicals?

Melissa, I would take issue with your assertion. The Necronomicon, for example, is surely evil!

Well, don't buy them whatever they have been treated with, I just saw a program on the disappearance of the honey bee in the U.S. and apparently bees are transported thousands of miles across the U.S. to the almond and walnut plantations to pollinate the crop and this is one of the reasons the bees are becoming weaker and dying.

When the bees die out (which it looks like they may do if these practices continue) that will spell the end of crop production as we know it, plus the demise of many wild flowers and trees, basically, the breakdown of the whole eco system.

I've heard (I think it was Ori Hofmekler, the WD guy in one of his radio shows) that all almonds from California have to be pasteurized but can still be called "raw" and it's not on the label. It sucks because tastewise they were the best, imo.

They're an modern mass-produced crop so they likely have some chemical/pesticide treatment along the way. I'm not sure that it would be different in other places.
