Mobile Phones Send Bees Buzzing?

It may sound sci-fi, but scientists now theorize that mobile phones could be to blame for Colony Collapse Disorder that’s struck bees across the U.S. and Europe. Scientists say the radiation given off by mobile phones and other high-tech gadgets may be interfering with the bees’ navigation systems, preventing them from finding their way back to their hives.

Although sufficient hard proof of this theory is still lacking, research already suggests that cell phone radiation may have serious adverse effects on human health, causing brain tumors, reduced sperm counts and loss of brain cells. If cell radiation can do this to people, imagine what it could do to bees…

    I sen tthe link to Robert Cohen, and he replied:

    Re: Are mobile phones wiping out our bees?

    No. That’s plain dumb.

    Bee “farmers” suffer their greatest losses in regions that have
    no cell phone towers. In places where crops span the horizons,
    and people are rare…where cell phone companies have no income
    because of the lack of people.

    Unless of course, perhaps the bees themselves are using mini cell
    phones (calling them “drone-phones”) and dropping them on the heads
    of their queen bees. That could be it!

    Oh, no…that buzzing in my ear..could it be mini-bee-pods?
