Wireless Radiofrequency Affects Navigation of Birds and Bees

It is well known that magnetite, a form of iron ore, is found in a wide variety of organisms. It has been shown that this substance is used to sense the earth’s low energy magnetic field as a directional reference. Magnetite acts as an internal compass. For over 50 years, scientists have known that migratory birds use the earth’s magnetic field to navigate. As it turns out, a diverse array of animal life also relies upon this geomagnetic field as their GPS for breeding, feeding, migration and survival.

Biologists have unexpectedly discovered that wireless radiofrequency radiation (RFR) disturbs internal magneto-receptors used for orientation. In addition, this non ionizing radiation can have profound impacts on the natural environment by disruption of other complex cellular and biologic processes in mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, insects, trees, plants, seeds and bacteria. Reported adverse effects from radiofrequency radiation that have been identified include abnormal behavior, developmental abnormalities, diminished reproduction and increased mortality. The effects of this radiation may not be immediately apparent with a slow decline in the health of wildlife seen over time with cumulative exposure, adding a new environmental toxin contributing to silent springs in cities, orchards and farms. The more towers, the more additive mix of radiation frequencies saturating the environment, creating an increasingly toxic air space. Non thermal biological effects are not considered in current guidelines. Appropriate safety testing and regulation of this technology is lacking, however, invention, commercialization and deployment of cell towers marches on – 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G.

The Skrunda Radio Location Case

Firstenberg (2017) in his fascinating and well-referenced book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life, describes both observations and biological controlled experiments performed, mostly in Europe, where a high power early warning Radio Location Station tower was in place for over 25 years. Studies performed during and after the tower was removed demonstrated that it caused not only human symptoms including documented memory, attention and motor deficits in children but also affected widespread forest health with loss of birds, thinner growth rings on trees, poor seed germination, loss of duckweed, among other effects. When these towers were removed, not only did the health of the local residents improve, the forest recovered.

Bird Migration Disrupted More by Weak Magnetic Fields

Biologists have discovered that birds’ magnetic compass orientation appears more vulnerable to weak broadband electromagnetic fields. A German scientist, Svenja Engles (2014) lead the research project to confirm this effect. He and his German graduate students exposed migratory European robins to the background electromagnetic noise present in unscreened wooden huts at the University of Oldenburg city campus and found the birds were confused and could not orient using their magnetic compass. If grounded or screened with aluminium their orientation reappeared, but disappeared again if broadband radiofrequencies were generated inside the huts. He did not believe the effects at first and repeated the same double-blinded experiment many times in 7 years and with different graduate students to confirm the effect before publishing his results.

    So pleased the word is getting out. A big thanks to everyone involved. It seems that most people assume that any negative phenomenon associated with the environment is caused by “Climate Change” but they don’t stop to think that there could be other causes. In fact, some of the arguments associated with the “climate Change” theory seem a bit dodgy to me. It seems odd that people get so hysterical about rising sea-water when the sea level is only rising a few millimetres a year. Don’t they know that this has always been happening because when comets land in the sea they displace water. There are places that were settled in roman times that are under water now and this wasn’t because of “Climate Change”.

      I’m with you, Anonymous. What hubris to imagine that we might be able to get the upper-hand on Mother Nature. The climate is ALWAYS changing. Sometimes it’s been hotter. Sometimes it’s been much colder. Seas fall and seas rise. Land masses rise and land masses fall. All that appears certain is that, given we’re in the fortunate position of living in an interglacial period, sooner or later (and probably sooner rather than later, given how long the current one has gone for) Earth is back to an eternity of glaciation. But what humans can play a major role in, is pollution. And guess what so many of the people who are hysterical about the ever-changing climate are doing – busily polluting the planet with pulsed radiofrequencies, levels which are said to have escalated a million billion times in recent years. Go figure.

    Since smart meters were rolled out in my area, bee numbers have vastly reduced and I rarely see sparrows. I used to see sparrows in my yard on a weekly basis. Now I see them in my yard about once a year.

      You will find that smart meters although run at a low frequency they are powered by electricity, so a cordless phone may lose reception over 20 meters. Smart meter radiation travels for kilometers with out fading. It’s a bit like having laser light to heal cells in the human body and having laser light to cut through 25mm thick steal, it all depends on the delivery.

    This interference by cell towers to all life forms does not surprise me. It is well documented that during the development of radar in the UK during the second world war, microwaves emitted by these devices were cooking pigeons, sea gulls and other birds flying through the emitted band width of this radiation.

      Very interesting, and there have been recent news reports in Australia of large groups of birds suddenly falling out of the sky dead. Some say this is due to the use of smaller scale HAARP-style stations (basically a field of powerful RF emitters\). It may come as a shock to some that there are such things in Australia but have a look at the following video on YouTube titled ‘HAARP STATION on Bruny Island Tasmania, Australia’ :
