When five ninth-grade students in Denmark set out to experiment with effects of cellphone radiation on the human body, little did they know they would stumble upon some stunning results indicating that plants will not grow near a wi-fi router.
Not so surprisingly, the scientific community is now slamming their collective heads against their desks and saying “how in the hell did we miss that.”
Five students at the Hjallerup School in Denmark embarked on the experiment after noticing a drop in their ability to concentrate in class after sleeping with their cellphones near their head at night. They surmised that the temporary effect had something to do with the amount of cellphone radiation they were being expose to at night and concocted an ingenious plan to prove it.
The team of five girls placed six trays of Lepidium sativum, a type of garden cress into a room that contained no sources of cell phone of w-fi radiation, and in another room they placed another six trays of Lepidium sativum into a separate in close proximity to two wi-fi routers that were similar in their intensity to the same type of radiation emitted by cellphones.
Over a period of 12 days, the students checked in on the plants, did all their calculations and measurements and were faced with the stunning results that won them the top prize at a regional science competition: the plants next to the wi-fi router simply did not grow, while the plants not exposed to the wireless ration flourished.
Needless to say, scientists are now looking at this experiment with great interest and are planning on running the experiment with stringent controls in a proper scientific setting to confirm the results.
But let’s face it people, how many experiments like this do we really need to understand that the radiation from cellphones, wi-fi routers and other electric devices muck around with brains and bodies? Do you think the girls have something here, or does more investigation need to be done? Leave a comment below and let us know.
