Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a seemingly inexplicable global honeybee epidemic that was first discovered in 2006. Baffled scientists have blamed everything from tiny mites to malnutrition for the distressing phenomenon, but a new study suggests that radiation from cell phones could be the cause.
Reporter Salvitore Cardoni explains:
“According to scientists at Chandigarh’s Punjab University, radiation emitted from cellular telephones is causing bees’ navigational abilities to go haywire.”
The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that over 25 percent of our food supply comes from plants pollinated by honeybees. If CCD continues to spread, it could spell the end of nutritional staples like apples, nuts, celery, and strawberries, and lead to a catastrophic global food shortage.
From a zombie research perspective, the unforeseen impact that modern technology is having on the earth and its inhabitants is alarming to say the least. Strange disease mutations, hybrid viruses, and contagions that were the stuff of science fiction just a few decades ago are now commonplace.
In our quest for advancement, it seems only a matter of time before we unlock one too many doors, allowing the waiting undead to hungrily charge through from the other side.
