The cress seeds that were kept as far away as possible from the Wi-Fi router grew healthily and became green.
The seeds next to the router? That's a different story.
These seeds were mostly dead or mutated. They did not grow at all.
“It is truly frightening that there is so much affect, so we were very shocked by the result”, says Lea.
Their experiment concludes that Wi-Fi radiation can expose your body to elements that will greatly affect your health.
“None of us sleep with the mobile next to the bed anymore. Either the phone is put far away, or it is put in another room. And the computer is always off," says Lea.
Olle Johansson, a renowned professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, says he and his team are going to repeat the experiment with his colleagues to study the conclusions even further. He says the girls' experiment was brilliant.
“The girls stayed within the scope of their knowledge, skilfully implemented and developed a very elegant experiment. The wealth of detail and accuracy is exemplary, choosing cress was very intelligent, and I could go on," he says. “I sincerely hope that they spend their future professional life in researching, because I definitely think they have a natural aptitude for it. Personally, I would love to see these people in my team!”
