What hurts the birds and bees also hurts you and me. That has never not been true.
On May 19, Newsweek published “Radiation from Cell Phones, WiFi are Hurting the Birds and the Bees; 5G May Make It Worse.”
Technology is quite literally destroying nature, with a new report further confirming that electromagnetic radiation from power lines and cell towers can disorientate birds and insects and destroy plant health. The paper warns that as nations switch to 5G this threat could increase.
In the new analysis, EKLIPSE, an EU-funded review body dedicated to policy that may impact biodiversity and the ecosystem, looked over 97 studies on how electromagnetic radiation may affect the environment. It concluded this radiation could indeed pose a potential risk to bird and insect orientation and plant health, The Telegraph reported.
This is not a new finding, as studies dating back for years have come to the same conclusion. In fact, one study from 2010 even suggested that this electromagnetic radiation may be playing a role in the decline of certain animal and insect populations. The radio waves can disrupt the magnetic “compass” that many migrating birds and insects use. The creatures may become disorientated, AFP reported.
This has also recently been addressed by The Nation, Democracy Now, NPR, Dr. Oz and more. The Tech Industry is being compared AGAIN to The Tobacco Industry which most people over the age of 40 know is a really bad thing.
Research has confirmed that 25% of Americans already suffer when exposed to common chemicals. Recently Natural Blaze featured an article about how glyphosate and chemicals from weather geoengineering will make this bad Electromagnetic Radiation and Electrical Pollution situation much worse.
Back to the Newsweek article:
In the United States, AT&T plans to be the first to have 5G available, and will launch the network in 12 cities by the end of the year, PC Mag reported.
Outdated legislation, regulations, safety guidelines HAVE ALWAYS favored the Tech Industry and never protected the public or the environment. The Precautionary Principle has been completely and deliberately ignored for the last 20+ years. New legislation is making it worse.
