young scientists prove cell phone damage...

A simple and elegant biology experiment performed by five girls in the 9th grade in Northern Denmark has proved the ill-effects of cell phones.

The girls from Hjallerup School in North Jutland were motivated to carry out their investigation because they noticed they struggled to concentrate in class and to sleep well when they kept their cell phones next to their beds.

The girls placed six trays of cress seeds into a room without radiation, and six trays into another room next to two (Wi-Fi) routers, which broadcast the same type of radiation as an ordinary mobile phone. All 12 trays received the same amount of sun and water over 12 days.

The results were clear: the watercress in the room with routers did not grow and some were even dead or mutated. The watercress in the other room was healthy.

Lea Nielsen, one of the young researchers, says "None of us sleep with the cell phone next to the bed anymore. Either the phone is put far away or it is put in another room. And the computer is always off."

This brilliant biology test has caught international attention from England, Holland and Sweden. Olle Johansson, renowned professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm is planning to repeat the experiment with a Belgian research colleague, Professor Marie-Claire Cammaert at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, as he regards this trial as outstanding.
