"How Wireless Technology Makes it Hard to Be(e) a Bee"
by Melissa Hayes, M.S.
The Environmental Health Trust created an excellent infographic titled, “How Wireless Technology Makes it Hard to Be(e) a Bee.”
There are some interesting parallels between bee behavior and human behavior in response to non-native Electromagnetic Radiation.
“…the radiation emitted by our cell phones, cell towers, and wireless tech have been found to negatively alter bee behavior, induce biochemical changes, and impact bee reproduction.”
“The bees’ resistance to environmental stressors is weakened by wireless exposure.”

As we learned in the last post, climate science and public health are currently lacking exposure to this important overarching topic.
Here are two articles regarding the tragic decline in pollinators, which are essential for our food supply and ecosystem.
The articles sadly do not explore the confounding variable of non-native Electromagnetic Radiation.

Non-Native Electromagnetic Radiation is an important missing link for our current environmental and societal challenges.
We need more journalists, scientists, doctors, public officials, and citizens of the world to join together and raise awareness of this important issue affecting wildlife and public health.

The first step to creating change is the awareness it is needed.
If you’d like to learn more, the Environmental Health Trust recently created a new website devoted solely to the environmental impacts of modern technology: https://wirelessenviroimpacts.science
The new website was created in partnership with Prevent Cancer Now and Canadians for Safe Technology.
It includes an environmental research database: https://wirelessenviroimpacts.science/zotero-database
