CBC’s The National reports that tens of millions
of birds are
disappearing across North America.”
The following video is from CBC’s The National, broadcast on December
Tens of millions of the most common birds in North America have disappeared,
and their absence is signaling a silent alarm bell about the state of our
According to a report by the National Audubon Society, the numbers of some
species of birds have plummeted by 60 percent to 80 percent.
The video Bellow explains some of the dramatic environmental disruptions that
are contributing to the decimation of the bird population, and what their disappearance
means to the future of our planet.
Dr. Mercola's Comments:
Like the tragedy of the disappearing honeybees, the disappearance of millions
and millions of birds means that something has gone terribly wrong in our
There are many likely contributing factors for this observation, everything
from pesticides to urban sprawl and pollution, but there is an extremely pervasive,
silent killer out there that hardly anyone is mentioning: Information-carrying
These radio waves are coming from your cell phones and other wireless technologies,
and they have increased exponentially in the past three or four years alone.
It’s already known that birds living near mobile phone base stations
do not breed well. It’s also known that exposure to these frequencies
causes disorientation in migratory birds.
Now, at the end of 2007 there were 4 billion cell phones on the planet.
What this means is that even if you are one of the few who decides not
to use a cell phone, you are being exposed to information-carrying radio
waves at unprecedented levels, and so are all of the birds, bugs and
wildlife that live among us.
According to Dr. George Carlo, who is clearly the world’s leading
expert on cell phone safety, “The background level of information-carrying
radio waves has now reached saturation point.”
And when we talk about these radio waves you have to understand that
there is no safe level of exposure. This is completely different even
from electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which are well-known to cause brain
cancer, tumor growth, and maybe even Alzheimer’s disease.
But according to Dr. Carlo, we have built up certain defenses against
EMFs, which are actually two parts: the magnetic
field and the electric
field. We have been exposed to a magnetic influence simply because of
gravity, while lightning and other natural sources have exposed us to
some level of electric fields.
As a result, we can be exposed to low levels of EMFs and perhaps not
be affected. But this is not so with radio frequencies (RF) and information-carrying
“We do not have any controls that make the information-carrying
radio wave manageable from a public health point of view,” says
And this is a major red flag. According to Dr. Carlo:
“Here is why we have a problem … Before 1930, almost none
of this exposure existed and up until about the 1980s, most of the exposure
that had to do with information-carrying radio waves … only occurred
high in the sky.
Like your television, your radio, the signal would go from a big antenna
on top of the mountain to the antenna on top of your house and then it
would be hardwired back down into your television for example. Information-carrying
radio waves were not at the street, but this wonderful invention called
phone brought the information-carrying radio waves to the street.”
The huge explosion in cell phone use and their corresponding information-carrying
radio waves is causing the following problems:
Damaging cell membranes
Decreasing intracellular communication by disrupting microtubular connections
that allow biophotons to communicate between cells
Increasing deposits of heavy metals into your cells, which increases intracelluar
production of free radicals and can radically decrease cellular production
of energy thus making you incredibly fatigued
First the Honeybees, Now the Birds, Next … Humans?
It would be naïve to assume that the bees and the birds are the
only living creatures being impacted here. Perhaps because they are smaller,
or more sensitive to the radio waves and changes in frequencies, they
are being tragically impacted right now.
But who, or what, will be next?
The only real solution to this major problem is to move our culture
away from wireless and back to wires.
Is this going to happen? No way. The telecommunication
even more power than the pharmaceutical industry, and there is no way
they are going to let that happen.
Well, I took some steps in my own life and when I moved I had my new
home completely renovated with wired CAT-5 cables -- so I have no wireless
connections at all.
For you and your family, I would suggest keeping cell
phone use to a bare minimum and using a speakerphone feature when you do use it. If
you must keep your conversation more private, a NON-BlueTooth headset
can be used.
And please, whatever you do, do not allow your children
to use cell phones, as their skulls are far less dense than yours, and their brains
are far more susceptible to damage from information-carrying radio waves.
I believe that one day it will be shown that using cell phones
is far more dangerous than smoking cigarettes ever was, and I will reveal the
details of why this is so in my next book, coming in 2009
