The report states that the electromagnetic fields created by mobile-phone networks and wireless LANs as well as ultra-fine particles emitted by cars and trucks may also be to blame. It states that these particles are so small they are able to enter organisms and cause damage.
To test the theory, researchers exposed 20 ash trees to various radiation sources for a period of three months. The report stated that “trees placed closest to the Wi-Fi radio demonstrated a “lead-like shine” on their leaves that was caused by the dying of the upper and lower epidermis of the leaves. This would eventually result in the death of parts of the leaves. The study also found that Wi-Fi radiation could inhibit the growth of corn cobs.”
The researchers urged that further studies were needed to confirm the current results and determine long-term effects of wireless radiation on trees. However, if this is the case it could mean significant changes to the world’s internet systems.
