Video source

If I was still a biology teacher, I would use this video to teach content and nuanced thinking.

The content is plain: Even though yeast consumes nectar, it does not deprive bees of nutrients. The nuanced thinking is going beyond the idea that yeast is a competitor to bees.

According to the science, the yeast is consumed by the bees. Yeast also warms flowers up so that nectar flows more easily and this makes the nectar easier for bees to consume.

This is why I like SciShow videos. They not only present investing factoids, they also provide seeds for nuanced thinking. That is the sort of thinking students of science need to learn. It is not good enough to learn about science, it is more important to learn to be a scientist.
