Wi-Fi could be harmful to trees, cause bleeding and bark tears, study saysNovember 29, 2010 No Comments
Wi-Fi signals could be responsible for health problems in trees, leading to bark tears, prematurely dead leaves and bleeding, according to a study by Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
Researchers exposed 20 ash trees to various radiation sources for a period of three months. Trees placed closest to Wi-Fi networks produced a “lead-like shine” on their leaves that was caused by the decay of the outer-cell layers of the leaves, PC World reported. Eventually, the leaves died.DATA and ANALYTICS
