Researchers say that more than 70 percent of trees in urban areas of the Netherlands have "Wi-Fi sickness."

Cnet UK: Dutch researchers have published a report that claims that more than 70 percent of the trees in urban areas of the Netherlands are suffering from "Wi-fi sickness." These trees have significant variations in growth, and bleeding and fissures in their bark that aren't explained by bacterial or viral infections. By contrast, trees in wooded areas do not exhibit the same symptoms.

The researchers also found that reports of the symptoms have increased dramatically since five years ago, when only 10 percent of trees were symptomatic.
