The Birds And The Bees

It seems all the electropollution in our atmosphere is even affecting the birds and the bees.

Read this quote from Alasdair Philips of Powerwatch:

"Medium- and short-wave frequencies have been used since the 1930s with little evidence of any effect on bird behavior. But since the mobile phone networks went up there have been increasing reports of birds, especially homing pigeons, getting lost. Research now needs to look at the effects of base station signals, particularly in view of the disorienting effects of EMR 'noise' reported in this study."

It's a known fact that migratory birds use the geomagnetic field of the earth as a 'compass' in their yearly migratory travels. Research has also shown that robins get disoriented when exposed to broadband frequencies in the range of 0.1 to 10 megahertz. Scientists have also shown that the migratory travel of birds is disrupted by electromagnetic radiation.

And as for the honeybees...well, they are disappearing at an alarming rate all over the world. Scientists are quite concerned since the disappearance of honeybees would have a profound impact on our food supply. At least two studies have shown that bees get disoriented when leaving their hive and can't seem to find their way back. Unable to find their way home they starve and die. According to studies this disorientation is caused by electromagnetic fields from all the cell phone radiation and microwaves in our atmosphere.

Food for thought (while we still have some).
