Maximal Wi-Fi signal and damage in trees
"Ash trees near Wi-Fi access points showed “an increasing number of damage such as cracks, bumps, discoloration and various forms of tissue necrosis” over recent years.
In seeking to determine whether this damage was caused by Wi-Fi networks, the researchers examined trees near known Wi-Fi access points during a three-month period.
During this period, leaves within 50 to 300 centimeters of a 100 milliwatt, 2412-2472 megahertz radiation source showed “a metallic luster appearance, a discoloration of the leaves that appeared to result in the disappearance of the outer cell layer of the leaves. The metallic luster was followed by desiccation and death of a portion of the leaf.”

Please, take a look.
P.S. the Dutch researchers were using the maximum allowable output power of Wi-Fi in their experiment. So, results apply to city, home and school Wi-Fi-installations as well. BUT, we don't know how Wi-Fi speeds up or slows down growth in human cells. There is more and more evidence that proteins in human skin react to pulsed signal.
