Episode: Interview: Dr. Asli Samanci

 It’s almost National Honeybee Day (8/10) which means it’s time to honor nature’s hardest-working pollinator!


Humans owe a lot to bees--- primarily many of the foods we enjoy on a regular basis! The US Department of Agriculture says that every 1 in 3 bites of food exists because of bee pollinators including fruits, nuts, vegetables, nuts, tomatoes, blueberries, pumpkins, and more. Although honeybees aren’t in danger of extinction like many bee species, their health is essential to the survival and strength of all bees.

Dr. Asli Samanci is a food scientist, bee expert with over 20 years of experience, and founder of BEE&YOU.
