True or False: PESTICIDES IN BEE POLLEN?

Could you please comment whether that Times article referred to in one of the posts on your site is true that bee pollen is contaminated with pesticides. It seems that the benefits of bee pollen would override that situation. But I'd appreciate if you could tell me any facts about this.
Studies have indicated that bee pollen can contain pesticides as bees visit floral sources that have been sprayed. I recommend that you source bee pollen that has been sourced from quality, secluded locations away from heavy spraying.
