“Electrosmog” Make Birds Get Lost in the City, Study Shows


For the first time, a new study shows that birds exposed to AM waveband interference lose their way

Researchers at the University of Oldenburg in Germany published a study in the coming issue of Nature, proving that the magnetic compass of robins fail when exposed to even the slightest AM radio waveband electromagnetic interference that are found in all urban areas.

Official US government report finds EM radiation threat to birds

Posted by seumasach on March 30, 2014

Citing studies by distinguished Spanish scientist, Alfonso Balmori, a letter from US department of Interior admits impact of EM radiation on birds:

“The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non- ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures. Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers in the 900 and 1800 MHz frequency ranges- 915 MHz is the standard cellular phone frequency used in the United States.”

KOCHI: They don’t use cell phones; yet they may be its worst victims. Next time you read a report on birds falling prey to radiation and consequently getting sick, you might as well guess that a cell phone tower could have caused it. It is not just humans but birds and bees too are beginning to feel the impact of ‘electro-smog’, the pollution from the electromagnetic fields (EMF).

Why Are the Birds Disappearing?
December 29, 2007

Tens of millions of the most common birds in North America have disappeared, and their absence is signaling a silent alarm bell about the state of our ecosystem.

According to a report by the National Audubon Society, the numbers of some species of birds have plummeted by 60 percent to 80 percent. Read the rest of this entry »
