Antenna Towers make it a Dog’s Life…
Animals don’t know anything about electromagnetic pollution. It just makes them sick. The effects of cellular and wireless phones on the health of dogs, cats, horses and cows.
Hiding is futile: Cellular radiation can find you everywhere.
In today’s day and age, we’re no longer taught how to understand nature. We’re taught instead to analyze it, change it and exploit it. There are only a handful of people today that fully appreciate nature’s inherent wisdom. Humans tend to primarily focus their attention on quick success and comfort. Viktor Schauberger’s warning, however, that “if we hope to survive, we must first understand nature and then copy it,” has never been more topical.
Nature is the expression of a vision, an elaborate, detailed and planned undertaking based on principles that are valid in both the visible and invisible world, in the macro and microcosm. Modern science attempts to solve the puzzle of life through analysis and detailed research. It constantly overlooks the fact, however, that things are often more than the sum of their parts.
Nature is the example. It shows us the principles of life, what’s good for our health and what makes us sick. We’re faced with these perfect examples on a daily basis, but modern science and today’s economics forge their own “laws” that butt heads with nature and haughtily hope to win.
We disturb and destroy nature on a daily basis with our environmentally adverse technologies. Plants and animals suffer stoically and quietly from the effects of mobile radio and similar communications technologies. AC-produced microwaves don’t occur naturally in nature, so we can’t expect it to know how to react to them either. Dying forests have as much, if not more, to do with microwaves than with CO2 and acid rain.
A bird flock’s or a whale’s sense of orientation becomes scrambled. They become lost or end up beaching, thus meeting their end. Many bird species are breeding less often and are in danger of becoming extinct. Cats, dogs, birds, cattle, bees and horses are the focus of the rest of this article and the following cases highlight exactly what we’re doing to our beloved companions every day.
Animals may not know the danger of microwaves, but they still suffer from their effects. Animals are neither hysterical nor hypochondriac and make the perfect test subjects for the allegedly “unproven” side effects of mobile phones and other communications radiation. Animals cannot lie and don’t make a show of their suffering. They simply become sick and die.
From Bees to People
“The information-processing and function systems of today’s humans, plants and animals are bombarded with artificial magnetic, electric and electromagnetic fields from numerous mobile and telecommunications sources in a concentration and intensity as never before. The consequences of these developments put forth by their critics cannot be overlooked any longer. Bees and other insects are disappearing. Birds avoid certain regions and are disoriented in others. Humans suffer functional problems and other sicknesses. And the evidence that suggests some of these problems may be inheritable means we’re passing them on to the next generation.”
This is the sobering testimony of Dr. Ulrich Warnke, an internationally renowned German scientist at the University of Saarland, given in his recently published report, Bienen, Vögel und Menschen über die Zerstörung der Natur durch Elektrosmog (Bees, Birds and Humans – on Electrosmog’s Destructive Effects on Nature), following years of research.
The bio-scientist is familiar with nature’s electromagnetic ways like few others. In his study, which marks the beginning of a series of newly published literature by independent scientists, doctors and technicians, he’s shown how intelligently and delicately nature has woven electrical and magnetic fields into the fabric of life. He’s just as convincing at showing how irresponsible we’ve been recently when it comes to dealing with these natural forces. By his approximations, modern humanity is posed to destroy in decades, with electromagnetic radiation what nature has built over the course of millions of years.
The introduction to Ulrich Warnke’s report explains: “The destruction of the necessities of life has already wiped out many species for good. Most people have remained uninterested, however, since these species have filled ecological niches, not affecting their personal lives in any way. Now, the endangerment of these animals is, however, threatening human existence in new and unexpected ways. The constantly changing and increasingly stronger artificial energy fields emanating from technological sources confuse animals that rely on the electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic fields within the Earth’s atmosphere for orientation and navigation and make it impossible for them to find their way back to their dwelling grounds. Most humans would assumedly take no note of this if it didn’t affect one of the most important insect species: the honeybee. The honeybee is an irreplaceable link in the process of fructification. No bees means scarce fruit, vegetable and crop harvests.”
Worker bees are no longer returning to their hives, whereby the queen and the entire brood perish. Science has already come up with a name for this occurrence: Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), which accounts for a previously unexplained disruption in bee behavior.1 Unusual drops in bee populations have already been observed in Switzerland, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and, most recently, in Austria, Germany, South Tyrol, Spain and Poland. 25 to 50 percent of American beekeepers have reported losses due to CCD. Within half a year, 50 to 90 percent of their bees disappeared. Those that have remained are so weak that they hardly produce any honey. The great bee extinction is already under way in the USA. Lately, truckloads of beehives have been imported for large sums of money in order to pollinate the fields. This is how far removed from nature we’ve become. 2006 saw an 11% drop in US honey production. It’s looking about the same in Switzerland.
Investigations have uncovered various sources for the recent phenomena, but none fully come to a conclusion: winters alone appear to not have been severe enough to account for the losses. There aren’t any genetically modified plants in Switzerland, for instance, whose pollen can harm bees. Monoculture, the use of land for only one crop, doesn’t exist in Switzerland to the degree it does in America. Poisonous insecticides have been used for decades.
