When five girls in Denmark became suspicious recently that cell phones were affecting their health, they set up a science project to test the effects of wireless network equipment on living organisms. Instead of phones and humans, though, the girls used plant seeds and Wi-Fi
routers. The results were alarming: Seeds planted far away from the Wi-Fi routers sprouted normally, while the nearby ones didn't show any signs of life. Was Wi-Fi to blame, or could something else have caused this to happen? You can try a simple like this yourself if you don't trust Danish girls to do it for you.
