I'm dubious. There are so many factors at play here. I can haz multiple independent confirmations?

Yeah, especially since the article ends this way:

Moreover, according to a teacher at their school, Kim Horsevad, a professor of neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden was so impressed with the experiment that he is interested in repeating it in a controlled scientific environment.

That is, "Let's try this with people who actually know how to grow plants."

This crap again?

Can somebody find demonstrable, repeatable evidence that this device causes harm?

It was done by five ninth grade girls. That's like 45 first graders. That's not enough for you?

since i've upgraded/flashed my firmware on my Linksys router to Tomato Linux, i can drop the transmitt power down from its default 42mw to 5mw output.  rf concerns go down as the power output goes down.  i don't need 42mw when 5mw does fine.

and my router speed is faster too.


nice try, though. Linux, once again, has Trumped it.   you proprietary folks are way behind the curve.

Then again, I can confirm that a plant I put by my router died.  I think the fact that it was on a shelf nowhere near a window, and I didn't water it for days, was a coverup by the mainstream corporate media to hide the fact that the wi-fi radiation killed it.

This experiment failed right from the start with the premise that a student who slept with a cell phone actually slept.

Wifi has been shown to affect sperm in men who use it on  their laptops, so this may also be true.

Plants use the air to communicate and are affected by the type of music one plays for them, making wifi interference with them entirely plausible.

And was the sun exposure exactly the same? Was one group closer a heat vent than the other? Did the same person water both groups? Were either group in the same room as another houseplant which may have been infected with a fungus or bacteria?

Most people would still happily install a radiation emitting device in their home if it gave them quick, unfettered access to stock quote and bukkake.  Remember the old days when you had to watch the news to get that stuff?

Wow. I think the modmins have been replaced with Pod People.

Which one of you thought it was a great idea to give Mike Adams some FARK time. That guy is a nutbag.

Yes, but that wasn't gluten-free wifi, and the music contained genetically modified fluoride.

Really, if you'd check, wifi affects sperm, and it's been confirmed.  It's old news.

Google "wife affects sperm" and check out the results. The ABC news link dives right into it, and it's from 2011.

I refuse to click on a link to Natural News. You're right, Adams is a nutbag.  And a  fear-mongering douchenag.
For those who don't know, that site is the cesspit of paranoid cyberchondriacs. It's where the crazies go to get their daily dose of anti-gluten memes anti-GMO hysteria, among other idiocies.

I run a cavern that does commercial cave tours. My guides like to say the cave was formed by wifi when asked. It's surprising how many people nod in agreement with that statement.

For those of you who don't know, NaturalNews is run by a guy named Mike Adams. He calls himself - in actual everyday conversation - the "Health Ranger", and lives in a South American country so that he can make claims that, in the United States, would get him a stern talking to by the FDA. Among his greatest hits, he thinks vaccines are genocidal bioweapons, that anyone who uses chemotherapy or radiation for cancer is insane, and that homeopathy works.

I am a fast reader and what you just said was my exact reaction.  That's talking about something else you know;that's talking about people who say their wifi or whatever electrical is making them sick, not talking about sperm. In fact, it doesn't mention it.

Wait, E&M waves are interfering with sound waves?  Is my physics that bad or does this not make sense?

I repeated this experiment, but instead of a Wifi router I put them in my pants.

I have some bad news for you if you like wearing pants.

Yeah, still. Howabout no.

Did you even read how the study was done? They put sperm in a petrie dish, exposed to air and elements, and then set a laptop ontop of them.

It makes sense because wifi uses radio waves, which uses the air...

"The experiment began when the five students realized that they had difficulty concentrating in school if they slept near their mobile phones the previous night."

Well, shouldn't the experiment have been moving the cell phone away to see how well the kids concentrated the day? Most likely the little bastards were on their phones way bed time.

My phone is nowhere near me when I sleep. Instead I have my tablet around.

There is a pretty good joke here about wifi, laptops, and sperm. Unfortunately I just woke up and have not loaded up on coffee yet. Something something frequent usage reduces sperm count...

So we can assume radio transmissions in space don't affect sperm count. At least if they're free-range, unpasteurized organic radio transmissions.

namegoeshere: Something something frequent usage reduces sperm count...


Well, if you're going to do a study on sperm count, you DEFINITELY don't want to account for diet, stress, ethnicity, BMI, comorbidities, or previous health history.

Nope. Just jizz in this plate. That's all we need here.

Good thing we didn't have WiFi when we grew our mater plants in the basement 25 years ago. Those were some damn good maters.

Guess I'm safe, then. I don't regularly douse my laptop with my sperms.
