Researchers also discovered that Wi-Fi radiation could slow
the growth of corn cobs.
In the Netherlands, about 70 per cent of all trees in urban
areas show the same symptoms, compared with only 10 per cent
five years ago, the study found. Trees in densely forested
areas are not affected.
The scientists behind the research, which has not yet been
published, said that further studies were needed to confirm
whether it was Wi-Fi radiation that was to blame for the
And the Dutch health agency has issued a statement which
reads: ‘The researcher from Wageningen University indicates
that these are initial results and that they have not been
confirmed in a repeat survey.
‘He warns strongly that there are no far-reaching
conclusions from its results. Based on the information now
available it cannot be concluded that the Wi-Fi radio
signals leads to damage to trees or other plants.’
Other scientists have expressed scepticism at the study’s
Dr Michael Clark, from the Health Protection Agency, said:
'This work has not been published in science journals so we
don’t have any details of the study.
'We therefore have to treat the claims with some scepticism
and strictly HPA only deals with public health.
'Nevertheless we note that last year there were claims in
news media and on websites that Wi-Fi and mobile phone
signals were affecting bee colonies.
'Published scientific studies have shown that fungal and
viral infections are the most likely causes of bee colony
Marvin Ziskin, a professor of radiology and medical physics
at Temple University in the U.S. said: 'Stuff like this has
been around a long time . . . there's nothing new about
Wi-Fi emissions. Scientifically there's no evidence to
support that these signals are a cause for concern.’
The study is to be the subject of a conference in Holland in
February next year.
In 2007 a BBC Panorama documentary found that radiation
levels from Wi-Fi in one school was up to three times the
level of mobile phone mast radiation.
The readings were 600 times below the government's safety
limits but sparked a furious discussion about whether Wi-Fi
networks should be installed in schools.
