EMF damages chitin – the missing link to bee deaths and monarch butterfly declines? Will the Smart Grid, 5G, and Project Loon finish the bees?

Steep recent declines in bee and butterfly populations have alarmed biologists and the public. Parasites have caused recent devastating impacts to bees.

Why is chitin important?

Chitin, the second most important natural polymer in the world,…

Chitin, the second most abundant natural polymer in the world, functions as a natural structural polysaccharide [A major component of the carapaces, crusts and shells of crustaceans such as shrimps, crabs and lobsters, it is also an ingredient of cell walls in fungi and yeast..

Chitin is isolated from the exoskeletons of crustaceans, molluscs, insects and certain fungi. [i]

Bees’ and other insects’ bodies are covered by an exoskeleton of small, movable plates of chitin. The ‘veins’ in insect wings are chitin. Chitin is part of the cell walls. .[ii] This is a critically important material.

…many “critters” on the low end of the food chain rely upon “chitin” a particularly amazing organic chain molecule with structural, optical properties, and even the ability to as a sensory device for various electro-magnetic energies.

But what is most interesting to me, is that chitin is a particularly effective bio-concentrator for man made radiation and heavy metals.

Chitin is particularly strong with its chemical bonds, most acids cannot destroy chitin. But radiation is also particularly good at destroying the chitin bonds, thus destroying the chitin.

So radiation is destroying the basis of the ocean food chain.

Curiously enough, bees and butterflies also use chitin in their structures and functional features. Damage to chitin exoskeleton makes it easier for parasites to get in, and that is a main cause of bee deaths[iii]

If you damage or destroy the chitin, these insects and sea creatures are defenseless or dead. Reproduction will stop. Extinction is probable.

The article from Nuke Professional below[iv] outlines the impact to chitin from ionizing radiation. Radioactive contamination of air and ocean especially from Fukushima, as well as from nuclear plants’ regular emissions, and nuclear waste worldwide, is having devastating impacts. This includes the effects to ocean creatures which have chitin.

Can the EMF from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and wireless devices also damage chitin?

This research was published recently, posted by Dr. Joel Moskowitz of UC Berkeley.[v]

On a Possible Mechanism of the Effect of Microwave Radiation on Biological Macromolecules[vi]

Nikiforov VN, Ivanov AV, Ivanova EK, Tamarov KP, Oksengendler BL. [On a Possible Mechanism of the Effect of Microwave Radiation on Biological Macromolecules].  Biofizika. 2016 Mar-Apr;61(2):255-8. [Article in Russian]

Abstract

A model describing the process of dissociation of hydrogen bonding in water clusters when irradiated by electromagnetic field in the microwave range is suggested. The model is also applicable for the case of rupture of the covalent bond of the water molecule cluster. If the energy absorption occurs at the interface of water and polymer clusters (e.g., DNA, chitosan), degradation of the polymer chain is possible.

From the beginning of Smart Meter deployments, people have witnessed odd bee behavior, bee disappearance, and bee deaths. Impacts to bees from EMF and RF were the subject of “Bees, Birds and Mankind: Destroying Nature by Electrosmog” translated to English in 2007
http://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/papers/warnke_bbm.pdf

FCC proposes 5G with even higher frequencies which are closer to ionizing radiation and have more power to break chemical bonds. Space-based Wi-Fi plans such as Project Loon will completely blanket the earth in these frequencies.

Humans can’t survive without bees and other pollinators.

Some experts warn that the ongoing Fukushima disaster will cause an extinction level event (ELE).

Will the Internet of Things and 5G cause a double ELE?

A scientific basis for destruction of ocean food chain via radiation

February 11, 2016 by Stock

I think this is really big folks.   If you like this stuff, sign up as a follower, drop a comment, and tweet this out and post it on Facebook—

A quick background for those who aren’t following things. The oceans have become particularly DEADLY to plants and animals, fish, and mammals in the last 5 years.   Large scale die-offs are almost a daily occurence.   Even the top of the food chain, Whales, have been affected and are seeing NOAA certified “UMEs” Unusual Mortality Events, aka mass die offs.   Seals are starving and the rescue centers can’t keep up.

Fishing seasons have been halted because of very low populations.   Bird species have died by the hundreds of thousands, all found starving, nothing in their stomach.   Seriously.   Some people are calling it the “Death of the Pacific”.   Google it, get this on your radar.

stock here  I believe that I may have discovered the smoking gun describing how radiation can be killing off so many important parts of the food chain, and decay chain on land and in water

Chitin is a polysaccharide biological structural polymer found in exoskeletons, like krill, insects, crabs, beaks of squid etc, and combined with calcium carbonate to form shells of crustaceans. It absorbs radioactive fallout.

Chitin, is an extremely important building block of many types of organisms.

Radiation 

  1. blows up the skeletons of important sea life at the bottom of the food chains like krill, 
  2. destroys fungis, 
  3. damages mushrooms, 
  4. and it destroys the structural veins of insects wings.    

See all the little snippets on Chitan from the “Dictionary_Of_Science.pdf”

In 2011, after Fukushima, ALL the flies went away….for a full year.   When the flies came back, I also starting feeling more healthy again.     How can this be?   Flies with broken wings would not do well…how could all the wings get broke?   Simple, they are made of Chitin.   from http://animals.mom.me/flies-transparent-wings-10244.html

SUMMARY
What are dying?

Whales they eat krill
Murres, they eat fish that eat krill
Reindeer and caribou die offs, they eat lichens/fungi
Insects are dying their wings are made of Chitin
Birds that eat insects are dying
Krill have an exoskeleton made of Chitin
Fungi have biological structures made of Chitin

Chitin absorbs radiation and Chitin has its chemical structure destroyed by radiation.

After Three Mile Island and after Fukushima in Hawaii…all the flies went away for a year.    Fly wings are made of Chitin.

No Chitin Sherlock, the smoking gun uncovered.

Radiation destruction of chitin

by Ershov, B.G.; Sukhov, N.L.; Nud’ga, L.A.; Baklagina, Yu.G.; Kozhevnikova, L.G.; Petropavlovskii, G.A. (Institute of Physical Chemistry, Moscow (Russian Federation))

[en]

The change in functional composition and molecular mass of crab, shrimp, and Antarctic shrimp (krill) chitin under the effect of ionizing radiation has been studied.

By electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy it was established that primary radicals appear in positions 1 and 4 of the pyranose ring with subsequent breakdown of the glycoside bond analogous to cellulose and chitosan decay when γ-irradiated.  {RADIATION}

A scheme of radiochemical transformations of chitin is suggested

—————————————————————————

stock here–supporters of the Nuclear Industry will often throw out their deception that “but the level of contamination in the ocean is so small compared to natural radiation”.   They completely ignore known science using the “Concentration Factor”.    Some life forms will bio-accumulate, or bio-magnify if you will, up to 2 Million times what is in the water around them.   See this table.    Note that they are not usually testing for Cesium and Strontium in these tests, but those could also be a darling of the heavy metal uptake and deserves a deeper look.

http://www.osti.gov/scitech/biblio/5671763

Par for the course, seems like the “scientists” are always concerned with exploiting a natural process and never use their intuition to also assess….what potential ramifications does my research have for protecting the eco-system.

Apart from clogging, shading, corrosive, and degrading effects, the major interest of many researchers was the fouling-mediating role of biofilms

from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3425911/

So they neglect to think….perhaps these biofilms that are on almost every marine plant or animal could be concentrating metals into the “host” plant or animal.   They know it happens, but only parse the question in terms of how it could affect “fouling”.

the passage of chemicals and radiation across these membranes is modulated by microfouling quite analogously to what is happening at the living surfaces of marine organisms covered by epibiotic biofilms. However, this insulating or filtering function of biofilms is much less studied in epibiotic associations because typically these biofilms cannot be maintained structurally and functionally intact in the absence of the host.

Code says
stock, in my mind, a distinction should be made in the bioabsorption, and concentration of radionuclides and the destruction of the chitin by the same.

For example, mutation could come from the concentration or precipitation (think ion exchange resin) of chitin and its effect on DNA, as opposed to sheer structural degradation. Also there is an important time factor. So as an insect is growing or hatching, the timed polymerization of chitin must be VERY critical. Rather than structural degradation, a speeding up or retardation of polymerization during that crucial stage could result in poor wing shape etc.

So interestingly enough….Chitin is researched as an effective “sponge” to soak up Uranium, Plutonium, Americium, Curium, strontium, Cesium.

Hmmmmmmm

Chitin absorbs and concentrates radionuclides. This is part of the familiar bioconcentration/bioaccumulation story. The concentration factor for heavy metals can be hundreds, thousands or even millions of times. The reason I started thinking about chitin is because I was looking for a natural organic ion exchange resin. They use ion exchange resin to concentrate and isolate cesium from ocean water for measurement. Chitin is well known for its heavy metal absorption and chelation. More is unknown than known about chitin and how it is controlled in biology. “Despite decades of intensive research, many events associated with the complexity of chitin formation and deposition are still obscure, or only partially understood. The list includes the hormonal control of CS at the transcriptional and translational levels as well as the post-translational CS packaging; trafficking and guidance of CS clusters to proper sites in the cells and their intricate insertion into the plasma membranes; activation of the catalytic step and its control or modulation; and translocation of chitin chains across cell membranes, their orientation, fibrillogenesis and association with other extracellular structural components such as polysaccharides (fungi) and cuticular proteins (insects)”

man made radiation concentrating all over the place!… Once concentrated in body structure, the radiation and heavy metals could interfere with the exquisite hormonal and genetic control of chitins temporal and spacial placement ‘Chitin is considered to be one of the most abundant macromolecules in the biosphere. The chitin microfibrils serve as structural scaffolds in cell walls, cuticles, shells, and intestinal peritrophic matrices. The capacity for chitin production is found in a vast variety of taxonomic groups including algae, fungi, protists, sponges, rotifers, nematodes, arthropods, cuttlefish, brachiopods, and mollusks. Chitin is particularly present in marine ecosystems because oceanic crustaceans produce most of its biomass (mainly pelagic zooplankton such as krill

tsezos and volesky showed hat ion exchange capacity of microbial cell wall can be greater than that of commercial ion exchange resins and activated carbon by three times. The test elements were uranium and throium Living cells can accumulate metals from much lower concentrations…ppb or lower…than inert biomass absorbers with higher concentration factors and greater specificities for a particular toxic metal microalgae sequester heavy metals by adsorption and absorption mechanisms as well as formation of phytochelatins which they synthesize in response to heavy metal stress.

chitin, nothing random about it! Chitin biosynthesis is a strongly regulated process, both spatially and temporally. It acts like an ion exchange resin and also absorbs by pores and other mechanisms. If the timing and placement isnt perfect, the animal will be deformed. The ion exchange process is very effective at transferring the radioactive content of a large volume of liquid into a small volume of solid. Nuclear reactors have been using resins for years. Boiling water reactors generate 20 cubic yards of organic ion exchange resin radioactive waste a year. They dont know what to do with this waste exactly. Told them so, but did they listen? http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/publications/PDF/TRS408_scr.pdf

Pages highlighted in the 600 page book I posted yesterday claim studies show tuffs?(volcanic rock) have a high absorbtion rate for radionuclides. I also recall coral having a high affinity for heavy metal contamination and death. Does this make Hawaii a sea sponge for radioactive particles? Will she be sacrificing her corals, or what is left of them?

Notable Fukushima/Chernobyl research scientist Timothy Mousseau has made recent note of the lack of funding/support for necessary/illuminating science on this issue, and deems it a form of censorship. However, nothing ventured nothing gained is applicable here. I’ll contact some people who might help, maybe some others here can do so too, and maybe who knows , a seed will have been planted: from one little acorn came many oaks … and a great many blessings.

Funny how “Science” it focused on exploiting Chitin, rather than protecting Chitin. http://www.els.net/WileyCDA/ElsArticle/refId-a0000694.html

new material added 2-15-16 Bottom line, if the Chitin as exoskeleton doesn’t form right during creation then the insect (or other critter) will be more susceptible to parasitic attack.   Much of bee die off is because of parasitic attack.—

With their chitinous shells, insects seem almost invulnerable — but like Achilles’ heel in Greek mythology, their impressive armor can still be attacked. Researchers at the universities of Bonn and Leipzig studied fruit flies (Drosophila) and discovered the molecular processes that are able to break through this protective casing. The enzyme chitinase 2 and growth factor idgf6 are especially important in correctly forming the insects’ shells. These findings are relevant for fighting parasites, and will be published in the professional journal Scientific Reports.
