There have been many campaigns promoting awareness of the dangers of the use of mobile phones and the negative impact of the use of Wi-Fi routers. However, the latest discovery in this field has definitely intrigued the scientific world as well as the public.

What is interesting about this discovery is the fact that it was actually an experiment designed by a group of ninth grade students. They were inspired to conduct such experiment at a biology class due to their personal problems with concentration.

They wanted to know whether we were affected by Wi-Fi radiation which was emitted from our cell phones and Wi-Fi routers. This was additionally supported by the fact that nowadays most people sleep with their phones and children are completely obsessed with their smart phones due to the visually stimulating activities.

As a result of this excessive use of phones it is no wonder that people face problems with sleeping and concentration. Curious to find out if Wi-Fi radiation has anything to do with it, these ninth grade girls used 400 cress seeds dividing them into 12 trays which they placed in two rooms. The conditions in both rooms were completely identical in terms of water, light, temperature.

There was only one exception – one of the rooms had two Wi-Fi routers. The seeds were exposed to such conditions for a period of 12 days. After the 12-day period the results were more than shocking.

The seeds put in the room which was without Wi-Fi radiation were growing well whereas the seeds which were exposed to the Wi-Fi signal in the other room did not show any signs of growth and on the contrary some seeds mutated and some died out completely.

This experiment definitely had huge impact on students and their attitude towards the use of cell phones especially towards bringing them to bed at night. And as one of the students said none of them slept with a mobile next to bed anymore.

This experiment received international appraisal as well. Hopefully, these talented and intelligent students will focus on science research in their future professional life since many scientists would love to have them in their team.
