Bee Deaths Linked to Cell Phones


By Kendra Srivastava | Thu May 12, 2011 4:37 pm

Bees may be dying from cell phone radiation, according to several studies, an alarming possibility given that staple crops worldwide require the insects' pollination to reproduce. ...



Why answering your cellphone might be killing bees

Toronto Star

The electromagnetic fields from cellphones can cause bees to become disoriented, leave their hives, and never find their way back again - leaving them to eventually die, according to a new study. Taking a phone call while admiring High Park s cherry ...

Cell masts and similar infrastructure are what is doing bees in, with other pathogenic overlay sometimes on the enfeebled bees, of course the more you use your phone (we've never fallen for it, never owned one) the less the infrastructure irradiates, ...



Study Finds Cell-Phone Signals Disrupt Bee Colonies

NewsFactor Network

By Barry Levine

Electromagnetic radiation from nearby cell phones disrupts honeybee behavior, a new study says. It warns that calls from nearby devices can cause 'colony losses due to unexpected swarming,' and may be a factor in colony collapses. ...



Study Shows Bee-pocalypse Caused by Cell Phones

LAPTOP Magazine (blog)

According to a new study from the Swiss Federal Insititute of Technology, cell phone signals may confuse honeybees, causing them to become disoriented before ultimately dying. That s a concern because 70 out of 100 of the world's food crops are ...



Study Suggests Cellphones Kill Honeybees

Cell Phones Caused Mysterious Worldwide Bee Deaths, Study Finds

Cellphone transmissions may be responsible for a mysterious, worldwide die off in bees that has mystified scientists, according to a new study.



Signals from mobile phones could be partly to blame for the mysterious deaths of honeybees, new research shows.

Daily Mail

They found the phone signals confused the bees who begin to fly erratically before dying suddenly.

The Harm to Bees

The Daily Mail article on the bees is closed for further comment but I am pasting in two comments that I made earlier. They pretty much sum up the situation in less than 2000 characters.

1. Why our bees are dying

I am a scientist who has worked for many years on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields.

The bees' problem lies in a substance called cryptochrome, which is present in every living plant and animal cell where it is part of their body clocks. Bees use the sun for navigation and need their body clocks to compensate for its changing position throughout the day.

Cryptochrome is also affected by magnetic fields and birds and insects also use it for navigation in the Earth s field. Because of its extreme sensitivity to magnetic fields, both functions of cryptochrome are badly disrupted by the electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and their base stations.

They are simultaneously deprived of both of their means of navigation, become stressed and disoriented and may not be able to find their way home.

Also, animal immune systems are governed by the body clock (they work best at night) and these too fail, making them more susceptible to pathogens. The perfect storm.

2. What will happen if the bees die out?

Many of our most valuable crops are bee pollinated. Without the bees, they will not set seed and die out.

Even our cereals, which are wind pollinated, are not safe since they do not host the friendly nitrogen fixing bacteria needed for sustainable agriculture. They would depend instead on mined fertilizers or the use of fossil fuels to make them from the nitrogen in the air. Neither is sustainable.

Also, cereals on their own do not give a balanced diet. In particular, they are deficient in vitamin C. If we had to depend on them alone, there would be a mass outbreak of scurvy, where vitamin C deficiency stops our bodies making connective tissue. This leads to a very slow and painful death.

Any government or vested interest that does not take this seriously will have a lot to answer for. Ironically, most other animals make their own vitamin C and would be spared.
