Five girls in the 9th grade in a school in Denmark have performed a very interesting experiment, which drew huge attention of people worldwide. The images that are placed on the Internet caused a stormy reaction of many researchers, biologists and experts on radiation from England, the Netherlands and Sweden.
The experiment consisted in the fact that they watched the development of seed of identical plants in two rooms with identical position to the sun, an equal amount of water when they were watered and the same temperature. In one room was placed router for wireless internet that emits the same type of radiation as an ordinary mobile phone, and in another room there was none.
After 12 days, the germinated seeds next to the router, hadn’t grown, and some of them were mutated or completely dead. The plants resulting from the seeds that were in a room without radiation progressed normally and were completely healthy. The young researcher actually wanted to draw attention to how mobile phones, which most of us at keep beside the bed close to the head at night, help with sleep and concentration, but such a thing was impossible to measure in school, so they opted to show on the plants.
Ever since they saw the result of the experiment, they no longer sleep with their phone next to the bed. “It’s scary that radiation has such a negative impact on living creatures, and everyone must pay attention to this. During the night, turn your phone off or put it in another room also, turn your computer off before going to sleep, “– says Leah Nielsen, one of the young scientists.
What to say after all of this? The experiment proved how much radiation is harmful, and you may want to consider carefully whether or not you’ll continue to keep your phone close to you during the night (or day).
