Thank you so much indeed for forwarding this article, which explains the
real truth about bees slowly vanishing from nature. I would have believed
that in Kerala they die from the much elevated natural radiation background
well known. In Europe they die from Varroa or pesticides. Until now I have
not heard about mobile phones and towers, but I am sure that some
environmental groups will be happy to investigate this if enough funding is

I remember the news in Austrian papers after the TMI accident, where it was
stated, that birds were falling dead from the sky in Harrisburg and
vicinity. Not to talk about monster trees and plants having been seen near

This is another independent "confirmation" of the risks of radiation in
whatever form it comes.

I hope everybody knows my attitude to ridicule ridiculous "scientists".

Best regards,

Kerala', Press Trust of India,

Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 31 (PTI) Mobile towers are posing a threat to 
honey bees in Kerala withe electromagnetic radiation from mobile towers 
and cell phones having the potential to kill worker bees that go out to 
collect nectar from flowers, says a study.

A plunge in beehive population has been reported from different parts of 
Kerala and if measures are not taken to check mushrooming of mobile 
powers, bees could be wiped out from Kerala within a decade, 
environmentalist and Reader in Zoology, Dr Sainudeen Pattazhy says in 
his study.

In one of his experiments he found that when a mobile phone was kept 
near a beehive it resulted in collapse of the colony in five to 10 days, 
with the worker bees failing to return home, leaving the hives with just 
queens, eggs and hive-bound immature bees.
