For many people, the free Wi-Fi is very useful. A number of hotels, restaurants, to parks now provide Wi-Fi services. However, the presence of Wi-Fi in many places it makes women in England, Mary Coales (63) worried.
Mary claims her mouth feels sharp when close to the radiance of Wi-Fi. He believes that he has suffered from electromagnetic hypersensitivity intolerance syndrome (EHS) syndrome.
Many believe that the radiation from Wi-Fi though not too high can cause headaches, lethargy, and nausea to difficulty breathing, even paralysis. They also fear radiation can cause cancer, autoimmune diseases, and long-term neurological disorders.
“My whole life has changed, I have to find a way to avoid Wi-Fi and phone signals, Wi-Fi is everywhere now, so it’s very difficult for me to avoid it.It’s even more difficult than avoiding people who use mobile phones,” Mary.
A study in 2011 found that male students’ brain activity decreased in areas radiated by Wi-Fi.
The results of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in 2010 also stated that wifi signals can also significantly interfere with brain activity in young women.
However, the syndrome of electromagnetic hypersensitivity or EHS intolerance has not been recognized medically in the UK. The UK Health Protection Agency says there is no scientific evidence linking health problems with electronic equipment, although many people feel the impact.
One of the NHS GP doctors in Somerset, Andrew Tresidder admitted concerned EHS is not recognized medically. Andrew claimed to have found many patients who complained of symptoms of EHS.
“Electro sensitivity is a very real disease,” he said.
According to him, the cells in the body can be sensitive to the type of energy wave, such as sound and light. Therefore, no wonder if the body cells can also be sensitive to other types, such as radio waves.
Meanwhile, Director of Medical Physics at Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Malcolm Sperrin assessed there was no evidence of a link between cell phone, WiFi and illness signals.
“The radiation levels from them are very low, in most cases, almost undetected (radiation) .The intensity of Wi-Fi radiation is 100,000 times smaller than microwave ovens,” he said.
Not only Mary, a musician Ricky Gardiner (66), who had been a guitar player for Iggy Pop and David Bowie in the 70s also feel the same. Ricky believes his illness arises because he often makes music using his five computers.
“It started with a strange warmth in my body.In the mid 90s, I felt very unwell, with heart rate and breathing irregular problems,” Ricky said.
The same thing happened to Sue Brown (53). He was forced to resign as a teacher at a prestigious independent school three years ago after Wi-Fi was installed at the school. Brown claims to have trouble sleeping at night, headaches, and sometimes feel nauseous. Doctors also provide painkillers, but it does not work.
“Now, I can not go anywhere because the Wi-Fi is so big, it’s a horrendous phenomenon, but when I tell it people see it as if I’m crazy,” Brown said.
