Electrical currents given off by the life-saving machines shown to have a negative effect on babies’ heart rates, new research shows

Life-saving incubators may cause babies to die later from cot death, startling new research suggests.

The findings will add to growing concern about the effects of the thickening “electrosmog” given off by electrical equipment which is thought to interfere with the tiny currents that help to drive the human body and govern the heart. The findings could also imply that placing infants near to clocks, radios and other electrical devices may be dangerous. Read the rest of this entry »

Donald Rumsfeld and the bees

The key passage is the attempt to stealthily atribute the decline of the bees to climate change.As if millions of years of climate change ever threatened to wipe out the bees. Contrary to the author’s claim that this is an “unknown” there are decades of scientific study showing the effect of EM radiation on the orientation of bees.

Article history
For the past two years, a mysterious disease has been wiping out honeybees in the US and Europe. This catastrophe could have a devastating effect on our food supply: about a third of the human diet comes from insect-pollinated plants, and the honeybee is responsible for 80% of that pollination. This is how one should imagine a possible global catastrophe: no big bang, just a small-level interruption with devastating global consequences. Read the rest of this entry »
