I urge everyone to watch Resonance – Beings of Frequency on YouTube.

NBN and mobile phone towers threaten our DNA, brain and general health and ALL LIFE ON THE PLANET. This NBN tower will magnify the amount of EMF and Microwave Radio frequencies that we are already being exposed to from mobile phones and WiFi.

Bees are critical to all life on this planet as they pollinate 70 per cent of the world’s crops. In 2006 all over the world bee colonies collapsed from 30 to 90 per cent. Bees are sensitive to magnetic fields as their bodies contain magnetite, which allows them to find their way back to their hive. However, this ability is disrupted by microwaves radiating from mobile phones to mobile phone towers. All living beings are electrical with a measurable frequency of 7.83Hz – which happens to be the same frequency of Earth. Einstein said that if we lose the bees all life on this planet will collapse within four years.

Please watch this shocking and critically important video on how this wireless technology is destroying our world and our health.

It’s just not worth the risk for the sake of having faster internet speeds, for crying out loud.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. How about some genuine scientific references to back these claims?

    Note that wireless broadband operates at frequencies in the gigahertz range (billions of cycles per second) so is unlikely to have any effect on the less than ten cycles per second found in biology.
