EMFs and Animals/Plants
Q. Are animals more affected by EMFs than adults?
A. It has not been shown that they are more or less affected than humans. And, as with humans, it's an individual issue. All people and animals are affected, but some manifest sensitivity more than others. It's complex, too, because the effects are cumulative. The more you are subjected to these fields the more sensitive you get, and this is true of your animals as well. It's true, too, that some of the effects take years to show up. Cancer is in this category. There have been reported cases where dogs have left their homes and disappeared after a smart meter was installed at their home. It is true that many animals are more sensitive, not only to higher and lower frequencies of sound than we are, but also to higher and lower frequencies and degrees of EMFs. It has also been reported that cows are very sensitive to electric fields. For example, they get sick, and do not produce as much milk. Chickens lay fewer eggs.
This 2009 literature review by biologist Alfonso Balmori shows the effects of cell tower radiation on birds, mammals, amphibians, insects, trees, and plants — especially on their nervous, cardiovascular, immune, and reproductive systems.

Newsweek magazine published this article by Dana Dovey on May 19, 2018.
Dovey says, "This is not a new finding, as studies dating back for years have come to the same conclusion." Dovey writes, "... a new [EKLIPSE] report further confirm[s} that electromagnetic radiation from power lines and cell towers can disorientate birds and insects and destroy plant health."
