Aiden Fitchett, an 8 year old second grader, found that while sitting near the wireless projector used by his teacher for presentations, his head started hurting. These headaches became worse day by day and resulted in him running home crying in pain.
Rachel Fitchett, Aiden’s mom and a biologist, tried to connect the dots and discovered that physical effects like headaches are caused by wireless fidelity waves or WIFI. She said, “I knew the health risks associated with WiFi and asked the teacher to relocate him and the headaches stopped.”
Aiden was still confused about the whole situation. When his school held a Science Fair, Aiden knew what his project was going to be about. “I want to know why I get headaches when I’m around wireless devices but not the wires, we use a laptop at home, and we have a television set, and it’s only around wireless that I get the headaches.”
In order to find answers, he carried out an experiment similar to a Danish experiment done by 9th graders. Aiden and his mom arranged for cress seeds, napkins and growing trays for the experiment. Aiden placed paper napkins on top of trays, and put same amounts of cress seeds on them. Both the trays were watered. One tray was placed six inches from a wired laptop and the other was placed six inches from a WIFI router which was switched on the whole time in their neighbour’s house.
The trays received sunlight through the west windows and the rooms were at an angle of 69 degrees. The trays were watered each day. The result, after 6 days, turned out to be same as in the Danish experiment. Rachel stated, “At first Aiden was excited as the seeds started to grow, but by the second to the last day one of his notations on the WiFi sprouts was strange.”
The cress seeds positioned near the Wifi router did not sprout in the Danish experiment. On the other hand, in Aiden’s experiment, the seeds sprouted, but were not similar in appearance to the healthy seeds growing in the wired room. The two seeds even tasted differently. Usually, garden cress has a peppery, strong flavor and odor. The seeds in the wired room tasted extraordinarily strong and peppery which caused Aiden to rush to get a glass of water whilst, the WiFi seeds were mostly tasteless. Aiden felt their taste to be similar to that of water.
Aiden came to the conclusion that garden cress was just as much living as he was and that wireless devices like Wifi had an adverse impact on the health of the seeds. This caused him to believe that wireless devices send things that travel in the air, causing something bad to happen to even his body.
Rachel also agreed to the scientific version of the same thing that Aiden said. “Results clearly showed reduced DNA repair capacity and cell proliferation , hence mimicking the growth of cancerous cells. The Garden Cress seeds exposed to wireless signals were in fact mutated and unhealthy,” she said.
Rachel realized that the greater is the intensity of the wireless signals by using multiple devices, greater are the negative effects on the body. She said, “The more that are together, the more concentrated the ill effects are.”
Because Aiden’s headaches continued to persist during computer class, he was pulled out. Rachel said, “He’s a very bright kid who excels in all subjects, he doesn’t need to get whatever it is they’re getting in there.”
Rachel and her husband, Matthew have 3 more kids besides Aiden; Caila aged 6, Levi aged 4 and Eliniah aged 21 months.
