A group of 9th graders initially wanted to test and study the effects of cell phone radiation on humans. Their school was unequipped to run such an experiment so they decided to use seeds and a router (which emits the same amount of radiation of a cell phone) to see what effect it would have on their growth. The results were all too telling.

Via News44:

It started with an observation and a question. The girls noticed that if they slept with their mobile phones near their heads at night, they often had difficulty concentrating at school the next day. They wanted to test the effect of a cellphone’s radiation on humans, but their school, Hjallerup School in Denmark, did not have the equipment to handle such an experiment. So the girls designed an experiment that would test the effect of cellphone radiation on a plant instead.

The students placed six trays filled with Lepidium sativum, a type of garden cress into a room without radiation, and six trays of the seeds into another room next to two routers that according to the girls calculations, emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone.

Over the next 12 days, the girls observed, measured, weighed and photographed their results. Although by the end of the experiment the results were blatantly obvious — the cress seeds placed near the router had not grown. Many of them were completely dead. While the cress seeds planted in the other room, away from the routers, thrived.

It disturbs the body’s natural energy field causing stress, fatigue and a weakened immune system. It can also cause headaches, concentration problems, dizziness, anxiety, memory loss, depression, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rates, seizures, epilepsy, nausea, skin rashes, insomnia, ringing ears, high blood pressure, brain damage, autism, diabetes, fibromyalgia, infertility, birth defects, DNA damage, leukemia, cancer, etc.1

Simple tips like talking on speaker phone when able to and using a wired headset instead of placing the phone directly on your ear are known already.

Here are three additional, easy solutions/habits to increase your quality of life in a digital world:

Turn off wifi and bluetooth on phone and router when not in use

Why have the extra radiation when it is unnecessary. Only turn on when needed.

Do not sleep with your cell phone

I use to have the perpetual habit of falling asleep with my cell phone in the bed. But over the years, I’ve learned to place my phone at a distance and adjusting the volume so that I could hear it when needed.

Place router in common room

Avoid having your wifi router in any room where you keep food or sleep. Ideally, your router should be in a common room like the living or family room.
