Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Radiation

I heard on a radio programme that plants can absorb radiation and, specifically, electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation. I found the following information from an Internet search, which would appear to have some credibility, but please remember it has come from the Internet!

When NASA completed its study on house plants and their various benefits, one plant that made it out with quite a reputation was the cactus. NASA found that the cactus was quite efficient at absorbing EMF radiation.

Since EMF radiation travels in a straight line, for the most part, to be most effective you would have to place the plant directly between you and whatever device nearby is emitting EMF radiation.

Researchers from the Department of Biochemistry at the Graduate Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, in Kolkata, India, studied the extract of the betel leaf plant. This plant is really interesting when it comes to reducing radiation exposure.

They found that: “The extract effectively… prevented radiation-induced DNA strand breaks in a concentration-dependent manner.” Since the extract was proven to be able to protect DNA from radiation in certain conditions, it is also believed to be a highly effective plant at absorbing ambient radiation in homes or offices.

The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) has been shown to have the ability to absorb a large amount of pollution, even cleaning out various harmful gases such as formic acid and aldehyde. Because of the spider plant’s amazing abilities at cleaning out pollution, it is also believed to be effective at absorbing forms of radiation in the home.

Scientists have found that the Sansevieria can harmlessly absorb over 100 different types of poison. They have also discovered that the Sansevieria plant is an anti-pollutant and can, on occasion, be used as an antidote to certain forms of radiation.

The stone lotus flower has all kinds of benefits for air purifying and is extremely convenient because it is the perfect size to fit on top of your desk. Many people also believe that the stone lotus flower is highly effective at absorbing some forms of radiation from the air. The stone lotus flower is a common essential oil because the health benefits of the plant are so powerful.

So, is the way forward to use plants as an obstacle to reduce the effects of EMF? There could be some issues, such as not being able to see the area under test and spines from the cactus getting in places where they should not be! This is probably not a viable option on reflection, but interesting nevertheless.
