Wildlife and Environment


Wireless devices and technologies, and the infrastructure required to support them, are endangering not only human biology, but all natural processes in our environment as well. Wildlife,and the environmental systems they depend on to survive. We can all take immediate steps to lessen the damage we are causing from using wireless technologies.

Military and marine life

Is electro magnetic radiation from military radar destroying the coral reef near Kauai?

Representatives from Kauai's conservation community recently met with representatives from the Pacific Missile Range Facility to discuss concerns that electromagnetic radiation coming from the high-powered radar and antennas could be the cause of coral's decline.

PMRF has about 20 radar towers on North Kauai. They work by bouncing electromagnetic radiation off of things -- that's how they detect objects.

Electromagnetic radiation is composed of waves -- just as light is, except that electromagnetic radiation isn't visible to the human eye. According to scientific models, the radiation covers much of the northwest part of the island.

"If we could see the radiation like we can see light, the entire island would be lit up 24/7," Lilley said. "That's how much we're exposed to every day."

Fruit Flies and Electrical Fields

University of Southhampton - Electric fields affect wing movement, leading to agitation and changes in brain chemistry

"A new piece of research led by the University of Southampton has found that the behaviour of fruit flies, which are commonly used in laboratory experiments, is altered by electric fields. The research indicates that the wings of the insects are disturbed by static electric fields, leading to changes in avoidance behaviour and the neurochemical balance of their brains.

""Fruit flies are often used as model organisms to understand fundamental problems in biology," say Professor Philip Newland, Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Southampton and lead author of the study. "75 per cent of the genes that cause disease in humans are shared by fruit flies, so by studying them we can learn a lot about basic mechanisms. . . .

Spontaneous Magnetic Alignment by Yearling Snapping Turtles

Rapid Association of Radio Frequency Dependent Pattern of Magnetic Input with Novel Surroundings: Landler, Painter, Youmans, Hopkins, Phillips

" . . . Behavioral studies have helped characterize the functional properties of both the MBM [magnetic based mechanism] and the RPM [radical pair mechanism]. For example, in insects, amphibians and birds, the magnetic compass has been shown to be dependent on light, and sensitive to the inclination, but not polarity, of the magnetic field. Both results are consistent with a RPM. In contrast, mole-rats that inhabit aphotic subterranean habitats have a MBM-based magnetic compass that operates in total darkness and is sensitive to the polarity of the magnetic field. To date, responses showing properties of both mechanisms have only been observed in animals that use magnetic cues in both the map and compass components of long-distance navigation (newts, birds and sea turtles, suggesting that these responses may receive inputs from both mechanisms, rather than the involvement of a third, distinct mechanism.

"A diagnostic property that distinguishes unambiguously between a MBM and RPM is sensitivity of the RPM to low-level radio frequency (RF) fields. For instance, magnetic compass orientation of birds is disrupted by low-level RF fields at the Larmor frequency (i.e., the precession frequency of an electron spin in the ambient magnetic field), as well as low-level RF noise, consistent with the involvement of a RPM. . .

Oral Statement of Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, DSc at the House of Commons of Canada

Oral Statement of Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, DSc for the meeting of the Standing Committee on Health of the House of Commons of Canada on April 23, 2015
My name is Dariusz Leszczynski and I am currently Adjunct Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Helsinki in Finland. I do research in area of biological and health effects of cell phone-emitted radiation since 1997. I will briefly present now, what I said in a slightly more detailed form in my submitted document.

Can Electromagnetic Exposure Cause a Change in Behaviour in honey bees? (2011)

Studying Possible Non-Thermal Influences on Honey Bees - An Approach within the Framework of Educational Informatics

Abstract

In recent years the public discussion has been focused increasingly on possible unhealthy effects of high-frequency electromagnetic fields (particularly of mobile-phones) on human beings. Whereas thermal effects of this radiation could be explained very well, non-thermal effects could hardly be clarified. In our last works, we pointed out that - from view of Educational Informatics - honey bees are suitable bioindicators to serve as a model of a living being to study learning processes especially in this aspect.

"In this paper, we describe a first pilot study, which explores the non-thermal influence of highfrequency electromagnetic fields. Therefore we observe the behaviour of honey bees (apis mellifera carnica) by exposing them to the radiation of DECT-phones. In this study four respectively eight bee-colonies were used as experimental group and were irradiated, whereas the same numbers of comparable bee-colonies was field-free. The observed parameters were the building behaviour . . .

 "All observed honey bees had the same weather conditions. These figures show that the quantity of returning bees of the non-exposed honey bees was bigger as well as the returning time of the few returning exposed honey bees was distinctly longer.
