+ - Plants and trees harmed by WIFI signals-> 1

Submitted by mugurel
mugurel writes: A recent study at TU Delft, TNO, Alphen aan den Rijn, and Wageningen University (The Netherlands) shows that electromagnetic radiation as emitted by WIFI routers negatively affects plants and trees. Over the course of three months, twenty trees have been exposed to six radiation sources. The upper and lower epidermis of leafs close to the radiation sources had died at the end of the period, leading to parts of the leafs dying. Exposed corn plants showed a reduced growth in comparison to a control group. Similar deviations in plants are observed internationally in urban areas. The researchers hypothesize that the ubiquity of wireless signals (from routers and other forms of mobile communication), as well as fine particles may account for the widespread this.
