Insulated Babies Grow Faster (Apr, 1933)

Insulated Babies Grow Faster

TO MAKE your baby grow faster, insulate his crib against the electricity of floor, walls, ground. To slow down his growth, ground his crib with flexible bands of metal. This is the extraordinary conclusion reached by M. Vies, of Strasbourg, France, who conducted such experiments on two groups of three babies. The insulated set grew more rapidly than the grounded trio, presumably pointing to the fact that the electrification of soil and air has a real influence on human growth.

    Yaos, reminds me of my statistics class when we had to do surveys – 75% of people surveyed said… – So three people said 🙂

    I’m wondering if this is an early EMF related article. It sounds as if it’s blaming ‘electrification’ for slower or stunted growth of children. The term ‘electrification’ was used as part of the FDR New Deal programs for bringing electric power to rural homes and communities still off the grid as of 1933.…
