New research puts the blame on cellphones for the sudden drop in bee population world-wide.
You might have heard that bee populations around the world have decreased dramatically over the last couple of decades. Nobody could find a real conclusive reason for this until maybe now.
A research group in Switzerland found out that bees react to active cellphones and even die from them. The bees sense the signals from the cellphones and answer with intense buzzing. At some point the bees get confused and fly around erratically and then die.
The study apparently clearly shows that the bee buzz ten times louder when a nearby cellphone received or made a call. The loud buzzing is actually a warning call and tells bees to leave the hive.
The question is how often bees come close enough to cellphones to die from them. I am not sure if this can be the sole reason for the demise of bees. To be safe, look around for bees before you make a call.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
