Cell Phones Killing Bees - Are We Next?

Honeybees Face Towering Threat From Cell Phones
November 07 2009
Studies have brought out evidence to support the theory of colony collapse disorder (CCD) among honeybees due to bioactive microwave radiation from cell phones and their relay towers.
Recent experiments have found that worker bees fail to return to their hives when their navigation skills are interfered by the mobile microwaves. Cell phones were placed near beehives. These hives collapsed totally in 5 to 10 days, with the worker bees failing to return to their homes.
The radiation also causes damage to the nervous system of the bee and it becomes unable to fly.
The parasites, wildlife and other bees that normally raid the honey and pollen left behind when a colony dies, refuse to go anywhere near the abandoned hives.The phenomenon of CCD and resultant crop loss were first noticed in the U.S. several years ago, but it had spread to most European countries by 2007.
Holy Qur'an
Sura 16, ayat 68 and 69
68 And thy Lord revealed to the bee:
Make hives in the mounains and in the trees
and in what they build,
69 Then eat of all the fruits and
walk in the ways of thy Lord submissively.
There comes forth from their bellies
a beverage of many hues,
in which there is healing for men.
Therein is surely a sign for a
people who reflect.
