Cell phones killing bees, undermining food security
Are you prepared to give up food in order to maintain your addiction to cell phones?
Cell phones may be to blame for the world's sudden decline in bee population, according to scientists.
Don't believe anything you hear to the contrary. The cell phone industry has been paying-off many mouth pieces to cover-up their path of destruction which will only get worse with so-called 5G.
Cell phone signals not only confuse bees, but may also kill them, according to research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The same results have been obtained in 83 experiments.
With nearly all of the people in the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been enormous.
The alarming study, led by researcher Daniel Favre, discovered that bees reacted significantly to cell phones placed near or in hives in call-making mode.
The bees detected the signals sent when the phones rang and made a loud buzzing noise during the calls. The calls serve as an instinctive warning to the bees to leave the hive, but the frequency confuses them, causing them to fly erratically.
The study discovered that when a cell phone rings or makes a call – aka when signals are being transmitted – the bees' buzzing noise increases tenfold, but remains normal when not in use.
The signals cause the bees to become disoriented and lost.
The impact is already being felt around the world, as the population of bees in the United States and the United Kingdom has decreased by nearly half in the last thirty years – coinciding with the popularisation and acceptance of cell phones as a personal device.
Cell phone signals have been found to repel bees in studies dating back to 2008.
Bees are a vital part of our agricultural and ecological systems because they produce honey and, more importantly, pollinate our crops. Because it is unlikely that the world will learn to live without the convenience of cell phones, it is unclear how much they will contribute to bee decline and environmental impact.
