Flora and fauna under radiation stress

Electromagnetic radiation, whether from high-voltage power lines or mobile phone antennas, not only affects human health, but also that of plants and animals. A new study shows the effects on bees.

According to a report by diagnose-funk.org, a new study from Chile shows the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on insects. The studies on bees were carried out both in the field and in the laboratory, with identical results: electromagnetic fields damage bees with the result that their pollination performance decreases. Marco Molina-Montenegro from the University of Talca (Chile) and his team apparently found that bees only fly to a third of the plants under high-voltage power lines compared to poles that are disconnected from the power grid. The researchers observed reduced seed production when plants such as the golden poppy grow near high-voltage power lines. The researchers suspect that high-voltage power lines could affect plant biodiversity. The Chilean researchers identified the following causes: the bees produced significantly more stress proteins under the influence of electromagnetic fields from the high-voltage power lines than their conspecifics who were searching for nectar under switched-off pylons.

Effect on insects

In the last two years, significant individual studies and reviews have been published on the effects of mobile phone EMF (non-ionizing radiation) on insects, as diagnose-funk.org reports. The field study by Adelaja et al. (2021) for example, shows: The closer to the mobile phone mast, the lower the animal populations. The study confirms the field trial results from Zambia of Nyirenda et al. (2022). The overall study situation is documented in the Swiss review by Mulot et al. (2021) “Effect of non-ionizing radiation on arthropods”, the reviews by Thill (2018): “Biological effects of electromagnetic fields on insects”, Balmori (2021): “Electromagnetic radiation as an emerging driver factor for the decline of insects” and Levitt et al. (2022): “Low-level EMF effects on wildlife and plants: What research tells us about an ecosystem approach”. Over 40 years ago, bee researcher Ulrich Warnke investigated and documented the negative effects of high-voltage power lines on bees. With his studies (see downloads) “Bienen unter Hochspannung” (1975), “Effects of electric charges on honeybees” (1976)”, “Der Stoffwechsel von Bienen im 50 Hz Hochspannungsfeld” (Warnke/Altmann 1976), “Relevanz elektrischer Biofelder” (1986) and “Thermographie der Honigbienen-Wintertraube unter Einfluss von Hochspannungswechselfeldern” (Warnke/Altmann 1987), he carried out pioneering work, the results of which are now being confirmed by Chilean researchers using modern research methods. In the 1980s there were further studies that confirmed Warnke’s findings.

The salad also suffers

It is now also known that the plant world, such as trees, also reacts to electromagnetic radiation. It is therefore not surprising that lettuce also suffers from mobile phone radiation. As diagnose-funk.org reports, researchers at the Technical University of Darmstadt have exposed lettuce plants to mobile phone radiation. They exposed two different types of lettuce to the level of radiation that is common in city centers, i.e. well below the applicable limit. The plants reacted to this with stress: they significantly reduced their photosynthesis and flowered prematurely. The experiments took place both outdoors and in the greenhouse. The environmental and consumer organization diagnose:funk published a review of this study in the current issue 2/2023 of the specialist journal ElektrosmogReport, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal “plants”. “This study shows that it is not only us humans and the insect world that react to mobile phone radiation, but also plants,” says Jörn Gutbier, Chairman of diagnose:funk. “What we already know from other plant studies is confirmed by the lettuce study: Mobile phone radiation triggers so-called oxidative stress in the plant cells and thus disrupts growth.

Stress for plants and animals

As early as 2016, a meta-analysis of 169 studies on mobile phone radiation and plants showed that the vast majority (90%) of studies on 29 different plant species found physiological changes due to exposure to radiation. According to a report by diagnose:funk, a study from 2022 recently showed that the Turkish pine produces fewer flowers and cones in the vicinity of mobile phone masts and that the cones are less able to germinate. A review study by the Swiss expert committee BERENIS came to the conclusion that mobile phone radiation triggers oxidative cell stress in animal experiments. The brand-new review by Lai H, Levitt BB (2023) confirms this finding and identifies oxidative cell stress as a proven mechanism of action, as do further individual studies by Asl et al (2020), Coronado et al. (2023), Kazemi et al. (2015), Misek et al. (2023) and Shaheen et al. (2021). This cell stress leads to inflammatory diseases and even genetic damage and cancer. The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified mobile phone radiation as “possibly carcinogenic” (level 2B) since 2011.

Saving electricity with mobile communications?

Speaking of environmental protection: As reported by the umbrella organization Elektrosmog Schweiz und Liechtenstein, the Swiss Federal Council has ordered households to save electricity in view of the energy crisis. Even a ban on ironing was considered. “However, there was never any talk of restricting mobile communication,” criticizes the umbrella organization. Germany now seems to be leading the way here: Mobile phone operators in Germany have recently been allowed to reduce the power of their antennas to save energy. In concrete terms, this means that when demand is low, some of the frequency bands are set to standby mode, i.e. switched off. This means less power consumption and, incidentally, a lower environmental impact from mobile phone radiation. What is the situation in Switzerland in terms of not consuming unnecessary power wirelessly? Can the mobile phone operators also switch off their antennas, just like turning off the light when you leave the room? The umbrella organization asked the telecom provider Swisscom and received the following response: “… Swisscom is also currently investigating new 5G energy-saving options. These go so far that parts of the system can be shut down almost completely when not in use and only reactivated when required. However, minimal signaling always remains active on a frequency band. If the tests are positive, the functionalities will be implemented.” The umbrella organization comments: “We assume that mobile users are willing to wait 10 seconds for a connection to be established in favor of lower power consumption and greater environmental protection.”

Generate a harmonic oscillation field

How can you protect yourself and your children from high-frequency radiation and electrosmog? “The law of resonance states that no resonances can occur in an oscillating field with oscillations whose frequencies lie outside those of the field,” says Richard Neubersch. In other words: In a harmonic oscillation field, artificial radiation has no effect, regardless of who generates it, whether it comes from a neighbor or a nearby mobile phone mast. The mobile products from Swiss Harmony (BioRing, BodyCard, BioBracelet and the BioPatch) harmonize the human body by transmitting the harmonic vibration as information to the human energy system. This means that artificially created radiation fields can no longer resonate.

 

Protection from harmful radiation
In concrete terms, this means that Products from Swiss Harmony for harmonizing houses and apartments ensure that the electricity that supplies a building with electricity receives a different message. “They transfer the information of the visible light spectrum to the passing current via the resonance path, which in turn distributes it throughout the entire effective range of the circuit,” explains Richard Neubersch. The electromagnetic field of the apartment or house thus becomes a harmonious field. In-house WLAN transmitters, cell phones or cordless phones are interference-free because they are connected to the harmonic current field and therefore emit the same harmonic information.

Book tip: “Funkstille
In his
book “Funkstille”, Richard Neubersch from Swiss Harmony describes the context in which topics such as 5G, corona and the like can be seen. “The discussions about the connections between coronavirus and 5G are increasing and it has never been more important to keep a cool head. You need to develop an inner attitude that allows you to remain centered at heart despite the extreme situation,” says the author. “Funkstille” is more than just a book about Swiss Harmony and mobile telephony. It sees itself as a help to stay centered in the heart despite the extreme situation that is currently keeping the world on tenterhooks. A new video can now be seen on Swiss health television QS24. In an interview, Günther Wagner explains how trees and plants react to the harmonization of his house.
