MSTERDAM: As if our magnificent trees didn’t have enough problems, they’re now being threatened by our emails.
When they’re not being assailed by some foreign bug or moth, there’s often a council official looking for an excuse to cut them down.
Now researchers say radiation from wi-fi networks that enable our burgeoning online communications may be their latest enemy.
Research in Holland showed that trees that were planted in close proximity to a wireless router suffered from damaged bark and dying leaves.
The alarming study will raise fears that Wi-Fi radiation may also be having an effect on the human body and will lend weight to parents and teachers who have campaigned to stop wireless routers being installed in schools.
