An experiment that tested the effects of mobile phone radiation conducted by 5 girls in a grade 9 class at Hjallerup School in North Jutland, Denmark has drawn acclaim and attention from numerous established researchers and scientists throughout Europe.

The girls, Lea Nielsen, Mathilde Nielsen, Signe Nielsen, Sisse Coltau and Rikke Holm, decided to conduct the experiment when they found that they were struggling to concentrate in class and having trouble sleeping and they wondered if this might have something to do with the fact that they slept with their mobile phones by their bedside. The school however, did not have the equipment to test the effects of radiation on the girls themselves, so the budding scientists chose a different subject – cress seeds. Continue Reading

trainspotting
Researchers are hopeful that a new vaccine intended to combat heroin addiction, could soon be available to help the millions of people who are a slave to the dangerous class A drug.

In the tests, the subjects were trained to pull a level to get their heroin “fix”, however after they were given the jab, they stopped seeking out the drug. Continue Reading
