Plants Grow Faster on 40m Band


New Research from France


Researchers in Paris have discovered the growth of plant seedlings was faster after they subjected the seedlings to frequencies in the 40-metre band. The researchers from the Sorbonne University found that RF pulses at 7 MHz altered a type of biological protein receptor that controls plant growth rates in cress seedlings making them grow faster than normal. The researchers say similar biological receptors occur across insects, birds and other animals too, including humans. These receptors have roles not only in growth rates but also in regulating biological “clocks” or in birds navigating by the Earth’s magnetic field. This is the first time that radio signals have been found to affect biological receptors and it has implications around whether life itself could be impacted by RFI.
