the data miner in me is not complete in reading this article - on the surface it seems to be just a deliverance of fantastic science delivering a CURE!. Europe primarily uses GSM signals... (like AT&T & T-mobile, here in the US) All the other carriers in the US use a CDMA signal - did they test the various signals, signal strength, frequency?. I want more data! What was the RANGE of the phones to the bees - did they test a various distances...how many hives do I know of sitting under a cell phone tower, let alone with a phone in it?
come-on... a couple of guys walk out to some hives and stick their cell phones in there (sounds like the start of a joke)
...I don't believe there's just any ONE single issue at work or to blame here. There's no doubt we're polluting our VISIBLE environment, but also our INVISIBLE environment.
...is it a factor? maybe. Stop and think about how many signals we have passing through our bodies - our tissues - every day - every second! the phone call from "Joe" to his mother....
