Effects and harm

What do the human brain, bees and water have in common? – They all use electromagnetic impulses in one way or another for communication or control processes. Electromagnetism is a natural occurrence, ranging from the earth’s magnetic field to the electromagnetic fields of organs (think of medical examination methods such as the electrocardiogram ECG or magnetic resonance imaging MRI), the tail dance of bees and the bipolar nature of the water molecule.

Technically generated electromagnetic radiation, as used everywhere and to an ever-increasing extent today – for mobile phones, microwave ovens, smart meters, WLAN, smartwatches, electric cars, satellites and every other “smart” device – overlap and disrupt these natural fields and processes. Thousands of studies show that our thoughtless interference with nature is having a massive impact. In fact, we are at a point where technically generated electromagnetic radiation has become a threat to all life on this planet.

In the video clips on this page, we show you how radiation affects different areas – and why. It quickly becomes clear that it is not just about bees, human health or birds, but that all life is affected – and that a shift towards technology that does not harm life is urgently needed.


In this presentation from our video series "How artificial electromagnetic radiation harms life", the focus is on plants, and animals from mammals to birds and insects. The video uses a variety of research results to explain how continuous radiation affects animals and plants. It also shows why the new wireless standard 5G in particular will significantly increase exposure.
