Cell Tower Radiation Prevents Garden Cress Seed Germination in Danish Experiment


By Catherine J Frompovich

What do cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and other “smart” devices all have in common?

They emit radiation, which no one wants to take seriously as having adverse health effects on humans. Medically, the adverse effects are called “Non-thermal health effects.”

In 2013, a ninth grade experiment for a national science fair found remarkable proof of radiation damage from Wi-Fi routers that was replicated by a peer review study. Wow! So, what did both experiments show? Garden cress seeds placed near Wi-Fi routers failed to germinate. Here are photographs that corroborate those findings.



Five Danish schoolgirls proved what apparently no one in the microwave industry wanted to. Wi-Fi radiation causes adverse effects to any life forms, which, in their experiment, were garden cress seeds. The young ladies placed the seeds near two Wi-Fi routers, waited and took photographs for twelve days. The results—failure of seeds to germinate—can be seen in the above photographs.

So, what does that experiment portend for humans? That similar effect(s) can occur from cell towers too. Two researchers, “Drs. Cammaerts and Johansson conducted a partial replication of the original Danish student study using cell towers instead of WiFi routers as the source of wireless radiation. They found that cress seeds located 200 meters from two cell towers failed to germinate. [1] What did they conclude from their findings? “Wireless technology may effectively and seriously impact nature and should urgently be used much more cautiously.”

That wireless technology may effectively and seriously impact nature and should be used much more cautiously challenges why Wi-Fi routers are standard technology in USA schools; why Smart Meters for electric, natural gas, and water utility companies are mandated and retrofitted on to every dwelling; and why cell towers [2], especially “stingrays” [3], litter the landscape like mushrooms after a spring rain, while radiation-emitting computers and smart phones are like appendages dangling from almost everyone’s personage. All those technologies emit electromagnetic frequencies in various ranges with adverse consequences for the environment, plant life (as we’ve seen with the cress seeds), animals and humans.

Here are some studies that corroborate my last statement:

Man-made electromagnetic waves have actually largely been shown to have adverse effects on living organisms.

They affect, for instance,

  • mammals (Adang et al., 2006; Benlaidi & Kharroussi, 2011),
  • birds (Everaert & Bauwens, 2007),
  • amphibians (Balmori, 2006),
  • bees (Kimmel et al., 2007, Sharma & Kumar, 2010; Favre, 2011),
  • ants (Cammaerts et al., 2012, 2013),
  • fruit flies (Panagopoulos et al., 2004; Panagopoulos, 2012), and even
  • protozoa (Cammaerts et al., 2011).
  • In fact, they act firstly and essentially on the cellular membrane and so affect any living organism (Cammaerts et al., 2011). Such waves have also been shown to impact plants (Roux et al., 2008; Haggerty, 2010), at physiological and ecological levels. [1] [CJF emphasis added]

Any microwave technology device that transmits and receives information, signals, data, or voice messages emits EMFs / RFs known as non-ionizing radiation that produce Non-thermal adverse health effects recognized by the American Academy of Environmental Medicine here and which vested microwave technology interests pooh-pooh. They claim the only adverse health problem can be heated skin, and none of their devices cause that. However, that ‘science’ is based on early radar tests done in the 1950s and 1960s; it’s now 2016.

This chart shows the ranges of non-ionizing and ionizing radiation and their frequencies.

Now, I have a bridge on the moon I’d like to sell. Who wants to buy it? No one, I’m certain, believes that’s a factual statement. Then, why oh why, do consumers believe microwave technologies are not harmful? I remember when cigarettes were smoked by doctors, and Camels was their favorite brand.


When will consumers get out from under the notion that if it’s on the market, there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s been tested accurately for safety, and we must have every updated version of the product?

    All we need now is a double-blind peer-reviewed experiment on the effects of proximity to routers on human fertility and other effects on human gonads and reproductive systems.

    Smart phones are not so smart after all. They are killers. Give up on continuous internet and live life. Stop the insanity.

  • Shane O’Shea

    Kind of Ironic considering you had to be on the internet to post that message and read this article.

    All my connections are by wire. I use high speed cable. I am an electronics engineer and I understand the dangers of microwave and other electronic radiation. It was one of my studies that I had interest in being involved in electronics. I purposely built a home that was not in the area of cell phone towers. I do not use a cell phone. All the wiring in my home is encased in steel conduit. I used only steel boxes and have grounding that is far superior to most all other homes. Some of my rooms are faraday cages that prevent man made and natural radiation from entering. I understand the dangers……you don’t know what you don’t know.

    Avoid wireless. It is dangerous. If you think you know better, then continue using your wireless nonsense. I will come visit you in a hospice when you end up with cancer.

    Bit of a bad decision to be an electronics engineer if you are scared of some microwave radiation, right? Surely that would be like a person becoming a doctor even though they are scared of x-Rays that are far worse than microwaves, right?

    I know the negatives of microwave radiation, you need not be an electronics engineer to know those. Lets just hope that you don’t need to go in for an X-Ray one day. Surely though, you would know, that you are not going to dodge those microwaves no matter what you do? You will always, at some point, come into contact with microwave radiation.

    A great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in

    March 2013. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had

    spread to his lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. Ed hated the morphine which

    made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on

    ourselves.We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a

    Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer

    and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email :(phoenixtears47@gmail.com) to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram

    of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of

    life. We never saw an ocologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over

    6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am

    writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently. For

    immediate assistance on every medical issue you and your family may be experiencing, contact Dr Rick via email: (phoenixtears47@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.
