Abstract: The Electromagnetic frequency (EMF) pollution around the living world has gripped it to such an extreme that it has potentially become unavoidable to live without it. As the development of mankind has become a slave of technology , it has to bear the brunt also. The stress created by the exposure of electromagnetic pollution on plants is a completely novice field. The stress expression in plants may be displayed by their developmental and biochemical responses. Since chlorophyll is one of the strong antioxidants known , variation in its amount has been taken up as an established symptoms of oxidative stress. The initiation of stress responses on Vernonia cinerea at different distances from cell towers having ascending number of antennae has been evaluated and found to be positively correlated with the cumulative intensities of Electromagnetic frequencies. In all the cases perceived it was decreasing significantly with increasing distances.
