After a brief hiatus from blogging, I have returned questioning what the best purpose of my sharings with readers might be. There are numerous places on the web where one can view heartwarming photo’s of animals that stimulate joy in ourselves. There are wonderful websites bringing awareness to the alleviation of suffering in animals. There are more and more photographic demonstrations of the bond between many species. I feel like sharing news about animal health care that might not be readily available everywhere as well as insights into how new perspectives on the human animal bond can be of benefit to all beings.
With this focus in mind, there appears to be more and more research documenting the potentially detrimental effects of electromagnetic radiation (emr) on bee’s and actually on all beings. This article on the detrimental effects of smart meters and their collectors in California. It seems that in this day and age of prioritizing the hypothetical benefits of technology for corporate financial gain over the potential adverse health effects for all beings, the damage to the health living beings is simply considered collateral damage. The “precautionary principle” is not even considered. There are very simple ways to avoid these hazardous health effects, yet corporations do not seem to care at all. There is continued documentation of the hazardous effects of extended cell phone use as well, yet it too is ignored. As electromagnetic radiation continues to permeate our environments, we do not look at the cumulative effects on our bodies. More and more people are becoming electromagnetically sensitive. Skeptics may cynically state that it is “all in their heads” and actually some of the hazardous emr effects are indeed impacting on the brain. Animals do not lie though. If one see’s the detrimental effects on bee’s and other animals, any argument regarding nocebo effect (negative placebo effect) goes out the door.
This article in Global Research offers an excellent brief review of studies. This video lecture by prominent researchers offers an extended video explaining these effects further.
This article by Dr. Mercola also shares some interesting information regarding emr effects on health.
The growing amount of information should ideally prompt health authorities to acknowledge that these concerns are valid and override any corporate financial interests. I have seen anecdotal cases of where emr has had significant adverse effects on dogs including increased incidence of seizures in a dog living under high power tension wires. At the very least, perhaps this post can help make more animal lovers aware of the potential adverse health effects on their animal companions and themselves and then help spread that word and make a positive difference in this world.
As we choose to create a healthier, happier, more compassionate world, the regulation of emr radiation needs to be recognized as an important component to a healthy environment.
