Organizations worldwide – including the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) – have been raising red flags about serious environmental consequences from increasing levels of wireless radiation. A new study from Germany reveals the same thing in regard to insects.
German Environmental Organization releases Study on the Impact of Wireless Communications to Insects
Possible negative influence on orientation, reproduction and foraging
One of the largest nature conservation associations in Germany released a report on the impacts to insects from wireless and non ionizing electromagnetic radiation. They found that 72 of 83 peer reviewed published studies found effects.
A current survey of the “biological effects of electromagnetic fields on insects” by high voltage, mobile communications and WLAN comes to the conclusion that, in addition to pesticides and the loss of habitats, mobile communications radiation also has negative effects on insects and is therefore another factor in weakening the insect world. The analysis was carried out by the biologist and environmental scientist Alain Thill on behalf of the environmental and consumer organization diagnose: funk, the NABU Baden-Württemberg and the Luxembourg environmental organization AKUT.
Highlights of the Research Study Review
- Researchers identified 83 scientific publications of sufficient quality on the issue after reviewing 190 studies in a literature search
- 72 of 83 studies found effects from electromagnetic radiation on insects.
- All of the studies analyzed are peer-reviewed.
“Cell phone and WiFi radiation in particular seem to cause the cells’ calcium channels to open, so that more calcium ions flow in. Calcium is an important messenger substance that triggers a biochemical chain reaction that leads to oxidative cell stress in insects. As a result, the sense of direction is restricted and the ability to reproduce decreases. In addition, the day-night rhythm is disturbed and the immune system is incorrectly activated. Studies from Greece also show that cell phone radiation is significantly more harmful than the 50 Hertz magnetic field from a high-voltage line.”

“This overview shows that the effect of mobile phone radiation on the environment is often underestimated,” says NABU state chairman Johannes Enssle.
“It is alarming that even low levels of radiation far below the limit values can damage insects…The environmental authorities in Germany, especially Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze, must now draw conclusions from the results of this study: The habitats of insects must be protected from cell phone radiation!” -Peter Hensinger, deputy chairman of diagnose: funk and head of the science department
“The biologist Prof. Herbert Zucchi from the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences, one of the leading experts in the field of insects and electromagnetic fields, rates the review as very thorough work, which gives entomologists a good overview of the current state of knowledge.”

The nature conservation association NABU is one of the largest nature conservation associations in Germany. For over 120 years, the nature conservation association NABU (formerly the German Association for Bird Protection) has been committed to protecting nature and the environment.
“NABU would like to inspire people to stand up for nature through collective action. We want future generations to find an earth that is worth living in, one that has a great variety of habitats and species, as well as good air, clean water, healthy soils and a maximum of finite resources.”
“Over the past 200 years, humans have influenced natural processes in the environment so much that they have created serious threats to humans and nature. For over 120 years, the nature conservation association NABU (formerly the German Association for Bird Protection) has been committed to protecting nature and the environment. “
High-speed internet is achievable without 5G (see 1, 2) and without wireless. Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment due to biological, environmental, and safety risks.
The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G deployment. Since 2017 doctors and scientists have asked for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was installed (see 1. 2, 3, 4). However, exposure risks aren’t exclusive to 5G. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population. Electrosmog includes wireless radiation.
