Is collecting bee pollen killing the bee population?

There is a supplement called Bee Pollen.  It is meant to be Oh So Good for you.

It is collected by putting up some type of mesh in front of the hive and as the bee enters with his little sac on his leg loaded with pollen the pollen falls off and into a tub that collects it.

The pollen is then checked for bits of bee legs and bee wings that may have also fallen off with the pollen as the little bee desperately tries to get through to his hive.

Terrible isn’t it?

All for sake of eating bee pollen.  What is wrong with eating honey?  And shouldn’t there always be one bee-hive for honey and one bee-hive just for the bees to do their thing?  Perhaps there is. I hope so.
