Plants won’t grow near Wi-Fi routers, experiment finds

December 15, 2013


(NaturalNews) It’s not difficult to understand the appeal of Wi-Fi. This  revolutionary technology, which has been commercially available since 1999,  eliminates cabling and wiring for computers, reduces cellular usage charges and  allows us to connect to the Internet from anywhere with a signal. Despite these  benefits, however, studies continue to show that the radiation generated by  wireless routers is negatively affecting our health. In fact, the British  activist website Stop Smart Meters recently published a list of 34 scientific studies demonstrating the adverse biological  effects of Wi-Fi exposure, including studies linking it to headaches, reduced  sperm count and oxidative stress.
The latest research into the dangers of  Wi-Fi, though, comes from a surprisingly humble source: Five ninth grade female  students from Denmark, whose science experiment revealed that wireless radiation  is equally as devastating to plants.

Undeniable results

The experiment began when the five students realized  that they had difficulty concentrating in school if they slept near their mobile  phones the previous night. Intrigued by this phenomenon, the students endeavored  to study the effects of cellphone radiation on humans. Unfortunately, their  school prevented them from pursuing this experiment due to a lack of resources,  so the students decided to test the effects of Wi-Fi radiation (comparable in strength to cellphone radiation) on a plant instead.
The  girls placed six trays of Lepidium sativum seeds (a garden cress grown  commercially throughout Europe) in a room without radiation, and an equal amount  in a room next to two Wi-Fi routers. Over a  12-day period, they observed, measured, weighed and photographed the results.  Even before the 12th day arrived, however, the end results were obvious: The  cress seeds placed near the routers either hadn’t grown or were completely dead,  while the seeds placed in the radiation-free room had blossomed into healthy  plants.
The experiment earned the five  students top honors in a regional science competition. Moreover, according to a  teacher at their school, Kim Horsevad, a professor of neuroscience at the  Karolinska Institute in Sweden was so impressed with the experiment that he is  interested in repeating it in a controlled scientific environment.
