5G Could Hurt the Bees
Updated: Feb 17, 2020
According to a 2018 study published in Scientific Reports, insects exposed to higher wireless radiation frequencies "show a general increase in absorbed radio-frequency power above 6 GHz." A 10% shift in the incident power density to frequencies above 6 GHz is projected to increase absorbed power between 3–370%, which could lead to changes in insect behavior, physiology, and morphology over time.
