Today everyone has a cellphone and a computer at home. They make it so much easier to stay in contact with people around the world. But, could it be possible that they are affecting our health? If that is true, what are they exactly doing to our bodies?
Well, 5 high school students wanted to find an answer to those questions. As a result, they conducted an experiment during their biology lessons.
What is even more amazing, is that these high school students managed to impress researchers in Holland, England, and Sweden. In addition, the students wanted to find out why they found it difficult to pay attention to class.
The students knew they couldn’t concentrate well in class after having slept with a phone beside their head.
In fact, they had difficulty falling asleep every time their phones were close to their heads, said Lea Nielsen, one of the students who took part in the experiment. As a result, the girls decided to find out if the Wi-Fi was the cause of their problems.
They took 400 cress seeds and split them into 12 separate containers. Moreover, they kept the containers in the same room. Also, they watered the seeds with the same amount of water and kept them under the same temperature.
Next, they placed 6 routers next to the Wi-Fi router, so that they would emit the same type of radiation as a normal cellphone. They waited 12 Days for the results.
The Shocking Results
The cress seeds that the girls placed far away from the Wi-Fi router grew and became healthy and green. While, the seeds which were closest to the router were completely mutated, dead, or didn’t sprout at all.
To the results Lea answered, it is absolutely terrifying to see how much the radiation affected the plants.
This experiment confirms that radiation, especially from the Wi-Fi router, may greatly expose the body to unknown elements that can completely alter the health.
Inspired by a Healthier Life
Lea said that none of the girls from the group sleep with their phone close to the bed now.
They either put it away in a different room or turn it off. According to Olle Johansson, a professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, this experiment is very interesting.
In fact, it is quite brilliant. As a result, he feels inspired to repeat the experiment together with his colleagues. Furthermore, the students created an experiment which is within the scope of their knowledge.
In addition, they skillfully implemented items they could get easy access to.
Choosing to do this experiment is very intelligent and creative. Moreover, professor Johansson says that he sincerely hopes that the girls may try to conduct researches in the near future professionally. He believes that the girls have a real aptitude for it.
He even said that he wanted to see the students on his team. Amazing!
This experiment seems innovative. The girls used cheap and easily accessible things to conduct their experiment. Also, they might be close to figuring something out, or maybe not.
After all, it is a known fact that plants grow best in nature, where the air is clean, fresh.
In addition, many factors may contribute to the growth of the plant. However, that doesn’t mean that the Wi-Fi router can make us wither and fade. Plus, it is obvious that people can’t fall asleep with their phones next to their head.
They will want to always check their social media rather than to sleep. So, lack of sleep is very common. Lastly, do you sleep with your phone next to your head? Do you find it difficult to fall asleep? Let us know what you think.
