Electromagnetic Radiation from Modern Technologies Threatens Biodiversity “Wireless” radiation should be included in the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity pollution prevention Target 7 Along with noise and light, harmful substances including pesticides, electronic waste and plastic pollution Bees & Other Insects
“Wireless” radiation impacts insect growth and behavior, and population levels. Impaired navigation could affect foraging, return to hives, and migration.
Birds’ navigation and reproductive success are impacted by “wireless” radiation. They have abandoned areas following installation of towers.
“Wireless” radiation affects plant growth and biochemistry. Time-line tree photos show leaf margin bleaching then loss and die-back, with higher exposure.
Beyond Birds, Bees & Trees
Research finds effects on other species, such as amphibians, mammals and microbes. Living underground may be protective.
