Five girls in the 9th grade in a school in Denmark carried out a really interesting experiment which attracted so much attention from people worldwide. The graphics that were put on the Internet induced a stormy reaction of many scientists, biologists and also experts on radiation from England, the Netherlands and also Sweden.

The experiment involved the youths monitoring seeds from similar plants which they planted in two spaces at the same temperature level, both facing the sunlight and watered with equal amounts of water. In one area, they positioned the router for a wireless network that produces the same kind of radiation as an ordinary mobile phone, and the other, they placed in a space where there was none.

After 12 days, the germinated seeds alongside the router had not expanded, as some of them were mutated or totally dead. The plants arising from the seeds that were in a space without radiation advanced generally and also were entirely healthy. The young scientists wanted to draw attention to how mobile phones, which the majority of us keep near our besides and close to our heads during the night, hinder rest as well as focus but such a thing was impossible to determine in an institution, so they decided to show them by using the plants.

Since they saw the results of the experiment, they had not slept with their phones next to the bed anymore. “It’s scary that radiation has such a negative impact on living creatures, and also everyone must take note of this. In the evenings, turn your phone off or place it somewhere else. Additionally, turn your computer off prior to going to sleep”, states Leah Nielsen, one of the young researchers.

From this experiment, it confirms how harmful radiation is. It is advisable to keep your phones away from you throughout the night while sleeping and reduce its usage even during the day.
