Is wi-fi killing trees?

The interesting article at the link below describes a study of the health of trees in an urban area which detected signs of damage to foliage which was attributed to exposure to the microwave radiation produced by wi-fi routers.


This research, and the observation of increasing numbers of sick trees in urban environments in Europe since the proliferation of wireless technologies inevitably raises the question of whether this form of radiation is safe for other life forms such as humans.

By the way, has been sent photos of of a damaged plant that was growing near a smart meter in  NZ.  If you have noticed ill or dying vegetation around a smart meter, wi-fi router or other source of microwave radiation and would like to report it, you can send a message through the Contact Form.

You can see how the health of a shrub was dramatically affected by a bank of smart meters in the USA at this link:

On a related note, you can see a youtube of radiation from a smart meter being measured at the link below.  The vine growing close the the meter is dying back.

(The meter shown in the link above is not typical of the type used in NZ so the footage is probably not from NZ.)

Harvard Neuroscientist Warns Against Wi-Fi in Schools

Martha R Herbert, PhD, MD, a pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist  on the faculty of Harvard Medical School has warned that W-Fi should not be used in schools due to concerns that exposure to the pulsed microwave radiation used in Wi-Fi may have adverse effects on children’s ability to learn and potentially damage their health.

In a letter to the Los Angeles Unified School District, Dr Herbert stated:

“EMF/RFR from Wi-Fi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function.  This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place.”

Dr Herbert has also written a 60 page paper about how exposure to electromagnetic radiation may affect children’s development, supported by more than over 550 references to the scientific literature.
