Note added by EMFSA: This study is about power-line ELF-EMF
There is a growing concern that the decline in pollinators spells problems for humans. However, there is debate as to what causes decline in e.g. bee populations. What modifications to environment, introduced by humans, cause death and misbehavior of bees. Many claim that pesticides are to blame. Many, afraid to be called foil-hats, are afraid to say that EMF might be involved too.
Just published study from Italy has demonstrated that pesticides alone are not good for bees but that pesticides combined with ELF-EMF from power line is even worse, the multi-stressors environment:
Lupi et al., Combined Effects of Pesticides and Electromagnetic-Fields on Honeybees: Multi-Stress Exposure, Insects 2021, 12(8), 716; https://doi.org/10.3390/insects12080716
In simple terms, it looks like pesticides kill bees whereas pesticides + EMF cause behavioral changes.
Not good news for humans and for the rest of fauna kingdom that eats what plants produce…
