Is Wi-Fi Making You Sick?

Thursday, 30 Jul 2009 01:30 PM

Feeling dizzy, sick, and confused? You could be suffering from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome, and just walking into a business that offers Wi-Fi could be making you feel sick!

About two percent of the population is supersensitive to the electromagnetic fields produced by Wi-Fi, although some reports put figures as high as five percent. Unfortunately for those who are affected by electromagnetic waves, more hotels, airports, bars, and coffee shops are adding wireless Internet every day, making shopping, going out for a drink, or taking a vacation more difficult.

Even though electromagnetic signals aren’t new—in fact, cell phones and televisions emit them—the wi-fi electromagnetic waves are higher in frequency and stronger due to the immense amount of information they carry. Symptoms can also include headaches, fatigue, depression, sleep disturbances, irritability, panic attacks, arthritic-like pain, heart palpitations, memory problems, and rashes.

The electromagnetic fields, or EMF’s, can also have effects on neurological tissues, and experts fear they could contribute to Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

Although there’s no cure for the problem, a handheld electromagnetic meter can alert victims when they are entering an area with Wi-Fi.
