I don't think there is a connection to UC, but it raises some unsettling questions.
Because from what I understand, UC is on the rise. I think it's strange that bees have started dying off all over the world and that whatever the condition is has some connection to weakened immune systems. The special also mentioned scarring in the bees intestines along with mentioning things like memory problems.
From pesticides, virus, fungus, etc, genetically modified foods, I can't help but wonder. But of course, like all of my speculation, it's an Off Topic issue. But something to be aware of nonetheless.
