There is a phenomenon of disappearing bees called the colony collapse disorder that has been observed all around the world recently, which could be possibly linked to the usage of cellphones. This issue is serious because bees are responsible for pollinating many of the world’s agricultural crops and their disappearance is a risk to many farmers and households as well. This will eventually hit the economy.
As of yet, the scientists have been unable to find the exact reason causing the syndrome because of which several different theories have developed around the sudden reduction in the bee population. But the recent study by Daniel Favre at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology found cellphone signals to be one contributing factor to this issue.
He conducted the experiment with bees by studying their reactions to cellphones nearby in different modes of on, off, standby and while making a call. His conclusion is that honeybees are sensitive to pulsed electromagnetic fields generated by the cellphones. The result of which is that the bees get confused about what to do and may die with the effects. But since mostly bees do not live near cellphones, the research into the depth of the matter is still open.
