This study has been undertaken by the German organisation BION, Institute for Bioelectromagnetics and New Biology.
The aim of the study is to confirm and validate that a Qi-Shield device provides a protective influence on germinating bean seeds (Phaseolus vulgaris) against wireless router radiation
"We tested an assumed protective influence of the Qi-Shield using the sensor system composed of germinating beans under a controlled (heat, temperature) stress (from now on called also Cstress). Based on the preliminary results, we followed two scenarios: (a) the seeds were exposed to Wi-Fi radiation after the C-stress, while in (b) they were exposed to the irradiation before the C-stress.
We performed two experiments: A and B following scenarios a and b, respectively. Each experiment consisted of two series and of five phases: soaking seeds, germination of seeds, temperature stress, water stress, and growth. In series 1 and 2 (exp. A), beans were exposed to Wi-Fi and/or Qi-Shield during the C-stress and the growth phase. In series 3 and 4 (exp. B), beans were exposed to Wi-Fi before the C-stress. In situations, where Qi-Shield was present, seeds were exposed to a device during the whole series. Control groups were treated the same way as the test groups, but they were not exposed to the C-stress. After each experiment, we weighted the seedlings and determined the effects of the tested device"
The full study is detailed below.
The conclusion from the study:
"According to the results of both experiments, we may conclude that the Qi-Shield
1. indicate a shielding effect on Wi-Fi radiation
2. the experiment B shows that Qi-Shield (alone but even more obvious in conjunction with Wi-Fi exposure) can induce more complex physiological changes in germinating seeds that either the seedlings make more sensitive to stress or make them more cautious in using the resources.
3. For a prediction of long-term effects of simultaneous exposure to Wi-Fi and Qi-Shield, another, lengthier testing should be performed. The same holds for the Qi-Shield only situation."
