Cell Phone Towers vs. Honey Bees

Studies are discovering that the radio-frequency radiation, a form of electromagnetic radiation is linked to killing bees, which poses huge environmental threats. Honeybees pollinate crops, plants, fruit and vegetables that do their job replenishing the oxygen in the air.  Bees account for 75% of the world seeds’ distribution, this is a serious problem, no matter what the reason. And, if CCD (colony collapse disorder) can be linked to the ozone layer, doesn’t that fall back on us?

Studies have suggested that electromagnetic radiation affects the internal navigation system of the honey bee, causing it to not be able to return back to the hive. The bees then die off, because they are not able to do their normal activities. This premature dying off of the bees causes the fruits and vegetables to not grow as normal, simply because pollination does not occur. This affects the harvest, which can have a significant impact upon the world's food stores now and in the future. This bee phenomenon has been seen all over the world from North America to Asia and this can have significant repercussions for mankind. This is not a study that is widely accepted, however, simply because many people believe that the decrease in the bee population can be attributed to other issues.

Many experiments have compared the behavior and productivity of bees in two hives – one fitted with two mobile telephones which were powered on for two fifteen-minute sessions per day for three months. The other had dummy models installed. After three months the researchers recorded a dramatic decline in the size of the hive fitted with the mobile phone, a significant reduction in the number of eggs laid by the queen bee. The bees also stopped producing honey.
