Our Phone Calls May Be Killing the Bees

Soon we may face the serious conundrum of having to hang up moblie phones to save the honey.  A new Swiss Federal Institute of Technology study (PDF) has concluded that cellular phone calls disrupt a vital honeybee communication signal (known as “worker piping“), causing the bees to become terminally confused and die (a condition known as Colony Collapse Disorder).

The worldwide decline in the honeybee population has been closely watched and documented by scientists, and has for the most part been attributed to chemical toxins, such as the controversial hive-killing pesiticide clothiadin. This study is the first to present hard evidence of a technology-based cause for the bee-pocalypse. 

Scientists point out that the ever-growing disappearance of honeybees may have devastating ripple-effects for the environment and for the world’s human population. Since 70% of food crops are pollinated by honeybees, the prevalence of Colony Collapse Disorder among bees could easily impact agriculture and world hunger.

Wildlife and environmental protection advocates at Citizens for Safe Technology have had a long-standing mission to alert the public to the possible dangers of wireless technology:

Wireless devices and technologies, and the infrastructure required to support them, are endangering not only human biology, but all natural processes in our environment as well. Wildlife, and the environmental systems they depend on to survive. We can all take immediate steps to lessen the damage we are causing from using wireless technologies.

The latest evidence pointing to the toxicity of cell phones has them currently raising this question

“With the impending introduction of 4G to add to the mix…how will nature fare? Will the income from the sale of 4G frequencies make up for the loss in food production and the collapse of the honeybee?”

We are adversely affected too

I can't talk on a cell phone, I get a sharp electrical shock in the hand that holds the phone and it goes up my arm and into my ear. I don't use them.

Poor bees. We should protect them.

Nobody needs to be connected 24/7. WIFI is detrimental to over health.

This whole issue is (unfortunately) a complex connection of not just one or two primary things that cause their death. Haarp-Chemtrails-Radio/Cell PhoneTowers' massive activities in the same time heavily affects their lives. Pesticides, fungicides and other chemicals that also influence their death. The bees in Hungary started to massively disappear from the year 2009. Last year we had plenty of them, even in the cities. When the Hungarian Government started to plan the ban of GMOs & GEOs, which is now set in the New Fundamental Law, a heavy chemtrailing & haarp activity was observed in the airspace of Hungary.

High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, is a project having the goal of studying fundamental physical principles which govern the region of the earth's atmosphere known as the ionosphere. It is through this region that earth-based communications and radar transmissions must travel to reach satellites or to probe solar and planetary bodies; and conversely, for radio signals from outside the immediate environment of the earth to reach its surface. It also is from these ionized layers that radio waves reflect to achieve over-the-horizon communication and radar systems. The proposed research will be undertaken using high power radio transmitters to probe the overhead ionosphere, combined with a complement of modern scientific diagnostic instruments to investigate the results of the interactions...This ionized gas of the ionosphere behaves much different
