Dying After Wi-Fi Radiation Exposure

MSTERDAM: As if our magnificent trees didn’t have enough
problems, they’re now being threatened by our emails.
When they’re not being assailed by some foreign bug or moth,
there’s often a council official looking for an excuse to
cut them down.
Now researchers say radiation from wi-fi networks that
enable our burgeoning online communications may be their
Research in Holland showed that trees that were planted in
close proximity to a wireless router suffered from damaged
bark and dying leaves.
The alarming study will raise fears that Wi-Fi radiation may
also be having an effect on the human body and will lend
weight to parents and teachers who have campaigned to stop
wireless routers being installed in schools.
The city of Alphen aan den Rijn, in the West of the country,
ordered the study five years ago after officials found
unexplained abnormalities on trees which they did not
believe had been caused by any known viral infection.
The researchers took 20 ash trees and exposed them to
various kinds of radiation for three months.
The trees were exposed to six sources of radiation with
frequencies ranging from 2412 to 2472 MHz and a power of 100
mW at a distance of just 20 inches.
Trees placed closest to the Wi-Fi radio developed a
‘lead-like shine’ on their leaves that was caused by the
dying of the upper and lower epidermis.
This would eventually result in the death of parts of the
leaves, the study found.
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 WiFi 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 WiFi 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.
The chairman of the Health Protection Agency called for a
review of Wi-Fi in public places in the wake of the
programme. A report on the findings is expected next year.
