    If there’s one thing people around the world love to do — in fact, need to do — it’s eat. Unfortunately, another thing everyone likes to do is talk on their cell phones. And according to a new study, these two activities are completely at odds because of a cell phone signal’s confusing effects on one key player: bees.

    Researcher Daniel Favre of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has found that wireless signals cause honeybees to become so disoriented that they finally just die. Favre’s team conducted 83 separate experiments that tested bees’ reactions to a nearby cellphone.

    I wonder if it varying the frequencies makes any difference?

    Not to worry. Move along. Nothing to see here!

    Even if these findings are universally confirmed, Verizon and AT&T can just borrow p.r. experts from the oil companies to tell us "the science is inconclusive," "sun spots are probably to blame" and "bees are regularly driven to extinction by cell phone transmissions as part of the natural cycle."

    So not to worry (unless you're a bee).
