In recent years, there has been a dramatic reduction in our insects around Europe. And a new German scientific study suggests that it is the radiation that is likely to be a contributing cause.
Our insects do such an important job! And it is not just us humans who are affected by the radiation and need to be protected. Our animals and insects are also affected, perhaps even to a greater extent.
If the insects, according to the study, lose their ability to navigate, do not find food, have difficulty flying and have a reduced ability to reproduce, as a result of the increased radiation, it will not only affect them, but in the long run also us.
We must protect our insects. They are so important to our own survival. Technology has become an important part of our everyday lives, and we are all more or less dependent on it, but at the price of what! So the question we have to ask ourselves is "is it worth it"?
Summary of what emerged in the scientific study
It is not just us humans who are affected by the radiation from our mobile phones and mobile masts. Our insects are also negatively affected. In recent years, there has been a dramatic reduction in our insects around Europe. And a new German scientific study suggests that it is the radiation that is likely to be a contributing cause.
In addition to the fact that the insects are already affected by a variety of pesticides and a loss of their habitats, the increased exposure to electromagnetic radiation is now likely to have a significant negative impact on our insects according to the study.
The new the study has been carried out by environmental researcher Alain Thill on behalf of the German nature conservation association NABU in collaboration with two other environmental organizations from Germany (Diagnose Funk) and Luxembourg (AKUT).
Of the 83 studies that were considered scientifically relevant, 72 studies showed that radiation had a negative effect on bees, wasps, flies and other insects.
According to the new meta-study, the following harmful effects on insects have so far been shown in research: impaired navigation ability, impaired reproductive ability, apathy, affected flight ability, disturbed circadian rhythm, inability to find food, impaired reaction ability, altered behavior, DNA damage and influence.
Research has also shown that radiation disrupts the cells' calcium balance, which in turn can lead to many other harmful effects, such as a weakened immune system.
