An interesting experiment. If this affects plants what can it do to the human body. A women in Ireland removed her 3 kids from school who were suffering headaches, nausea and lack of concentration that she surmised was from the Wifi. At home she has no WiFi and the kids were fine. Will this become the next asbestos or smoking creating a whole new chapter of illness down the road? You may want to do some research so you can make up your own mind for you, your kids and grandkids. We don’t have WiFi and never put a cell phone next to our ear as a precaution… actually we’ve measured the electromagnetic energy coming from a cell phone and the “danger” levels extend 4-5 feet out! -AALady
Wi-Fi Could Be Killing Plants
An experiment conducted by ninth grade children from Sweden in 2013 presented a scary picture of the effects of Wi-Fi on plants. The children planted 400 cress seeds in 12 trays. They placed six trays in two rooms at the same temperature, giving them the same amount of water and sunlight for the next 12 days. The only difference is that one set was placed in a room with Wi-Fi routers.
Stunningly, the one which was exposed to Wi-Fi didn’t grow and some of the plants were even stunted.
The cress plants in the other set showed healthy growth. While the results couldn’t be proved by a meta-study in 2013, the initial school project did pique the curiosity of researchers from Holland, England and Sweden.

FOX 5 News: Parents Concerned About WiFi in MCPS Schools 2/2016
Excellent video that just came out on the concerns of parents over WiFi in schools and especially Google’s new virtual box where kids look into a device that actually has a smart phone in it… kids are getting headaches and nausea and parents are worried as the device is so close to their eyes. Click on the link not the video pix..
Check out this video on measuring the electrical appliances in your house and how they could affect your health. Dr. Greene shows the health hazards and free solutions for dealing with common household electronics such as light bulbs, cordless phones, microwave ovens, cell phones, and baby monitors.
Today’s smartphones, iPads and electronic devices are relatively new, but research is raising serious concerns about their long-term health impacts. Microwave radiation at the levels we get from our cell phones is linked to damage to the nervous, reproductive, and immune systems. When parents give their infant or toddler an iPad, it is a brain stimulant, and now other nations are finding that children cannot self soothe or control impulses, with lots of data from Korea and other countries on digital dementia, etc.
There is particular concern for children, teens, and young adults, who are increasingly heavy users but whose growing bodies are also more vulnerable to the radiation. Some studies have found those who start using cell phones as teens have a greater health risk than those who started as adults.
Children are disproportionately affected by environmental exposures, including cell phone radiation. The differences in bone density and the amount of fluid in a child’s brain compared to an adult’s brain could allow children to absorb greater quantities of RF energy deeper into their brains than adults. It is essential that any new standards for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded through their lifetimes.
In May 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the United Nations’ World Health Organization’s (WHO) agency promoting international cancer research collaboration, classified RF energy as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This applies to WiFi signals too.
To protect yourself and your kids…. never carry a phone that is on in your clothes, always wear a headset or turn the speaker on and never hold it to your ear. Choose hard-wired over WiFi for your computer. The warning on the cell phone says “Body-worn SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.0 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device should be positioned at least this distance away from the body.” So take heed.
Like cancer from smoking took decades to link the two so will we see RF health effects appearing down the road. Don’t be one of those affected.
Experts around the world are using the Precautionary Principle when it comes to electromagnetic radiation (EMF) from cell phones, microwave ovens, Wi-Fi, smart meters. In the EU governments are seeing bans on Wi-Fi in schools as are the teacher’s union in Ontario, Canada. Even if no conclusive proof is forthcoming, when the possibility exists based on experiential evidence, they are erring on the side of caution.
An expert on this short video claims that EMF is cumulative and only 1690 hours of holding a cell phone next to your head doubles your chances of getting glioma brain tumors – that’s only about 2 hours per day for 2 years! Click Here. A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that cell phone radiation changed brain chemistry by raising glucose levels. The World Health Organization added radiofrequency electromagnetic fields to a long list of “possibly carcinogenic” agents; other such agents are coconut oil, DDT, gasoline exhaust, lead, talcum powder, titanium dioxide, and some types of HIV and HPV viruses. Aside from increased risk of brain cancer, cellphone use has also been tied to developmental problems in kids, ringing in the ears, bone loss, concentration problems, and unsightly rashes.
Texting is obviously less invasive on your head, but many warnings about keeping the cell phone in your pocket while on, can increase risk of cancer in those areas (testicular, breast). Therefore, it seems to reason that holding a phone while texting can affect the hand and wrist as well. Although my research doesn’t find much that addresses holding the phone, the studies show proximity of an organ to the “live” phone radiation to be a problem so we just extrapolate what could be happening to your wrist (like carpal tunnel syndrome from repeated mouse usage). We can suggest if you text at least put the phone down on a hard surface and don’t hold it as a best “precautionary” method.
Many users are totally unaware that their favorite communication device could be a health hazard. We hope that this information reaches them so they can take a look, do some research and make their own decision about reducing the risk. There are also some protection devices you can put on your phone to help mitigate the radiation. See this information page: Click Here
If you don’t know what a smart meter is please visit the blog No Mass Smart Meters and get educated. This program is sweeping the country with promises of energy savings. Unfortunately that is not what happens in most cases after the popcorn towers start appearing all over town. Utility customers have seen their electric bills escalate and refuse to change their patterns of usage just because rates are cheaper at 3am. Costs of implementing this “green” program are subsidized by government stimulus money, but the big cost overruns are paid by you – the ratepayer. And, many complain about the detrimental health effects of the frequencies emitted from the meters themselves, warn of fire hazards from the meters and are concerned about cybersecurity.
Listen to this radio interview by the President of the Scientific Alliance for Education who is creating awareness in Massachusetts and find out what is hanging on your building.

The human heart correlates with the Schumann Resonance of the earth. Wireless frequencies are millions of times faster than these natural rhythms. What does this say for the health of humans (unless their heart adapts) and especially children who are now living in a wifi world? Europe is way ahead of us in recognizing the hazards of electromagnetic frequencies on our bodies.
European Resolution Re: EMF and Human Health The Parliamentary Assembly of the 47-member Council of Europe passed a resolution on May 27, 2011 recommending sweeping changes to the way cell phones are used, how they are marketed, and how safe exposure limits are determined. “The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment,” resolution covers the effects of EMF fields on human health. The Council of Europe also advocates that electric power lines and inhabited dwellings be kept apart from each other at a safe distance, much farther than currently practiced in the building trade. They also say the siting of all new radio and cell phone antennas should be done so as to protect the health of nearby residents, not “solely according to the operators’ interests.”
Please take an interest in what these frequencies are doing. Just because cellular companies report “safe” rhetoric, do more research to see if they are just padding their case to inflate their bottom line. All of their research usually comes from the countries who opt out of EMF hazard research, like the USA. Be wary of articles that promote the RF safe cause and do you own research outside the propaganda box. Maine is already getting aboard: California and Maine are the most heavily deployed states for the relatively new RF smart meter on your house . Maine’s program is under audit, and Maine’s Supreme Court has ruled that the MPUC did not adequately address health concerns related to smart meters.
