The honeybees are disappearing.
Honeybees pollinate most of the world’s crops.
Albert Einstein once said that if the bees disappeared, “man would have only four years of life left”.
100% of almond trees (crop value $2.2 billion), 90% of apple trees (2.1 billion), 90% of blueberries (0.5 billion) are among the fruits, vegetables, nuts and other crops pollinated by honey bees each year in the United States.
Therefore, when the honeybees start disappearing at a rate reaching to 70% in some regions of the United States with no traces left, and when this phenomenon starts spreading out and reaching Europe, then there is a genuine reason for alarm.
It is still not clear why this is happening, but there is speculation that the use of cell phones may be the culprit.
