Electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi and cell towers poses a “credible risk” to birds, mammals, insects and plants
There is growing evidence that our addiction to cellphones could be impacting
brain functionality and be the cause of stress, anxiety, insomnia and a lack of
attention and focus. Now a new report has found that we’re not the only living
things to be affected by our increasing dependence on wireless technology.
Mammals, birds, insects and even plants are likely being harmed by the
electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emanating from Wi-Fi, cellphone towers,
broadcast transmitters and power lines, according to a new analysis of 97
peer-reviewed studies conducted by EKLIPSE, a biodiversity and ecosystem
project funded by the European Union.
