A group of Santa Fe residents claiming to be allergic to WiFi signals is requesting that all public buildings have the devices removed.

I wonder do they cook with microwaves.EMF,s pass through you everyday like air passages through your lungs! Its everywhere!
On a daily basis, most people are exposed to EMFs generated by household wiring, fluorescent lighting, and any electrical appliance that plugs into the wall, including hair dryers, vacuum cleaners and toasters. In the workplace, common sources include video display terminals (computer monitors), air purifiers, photocopiers, fax machines, fluorescent lights, electric heaters and electric tools in machine shops, such as drills, power saws, lathes and welding machines.
Typical Exposures Present No Known Health Risks
Research has shown that EMFs from electrical devices and power lines can induce weak electric currents to flow through the human body. However, these currents are much smaller than those produced naturally by your brain, nerves and heart, and are not associated with any known health risks.
There have been many studies about the effects of exposure to electric and magnetic fields at extremely low frequencies. Scientists are aware that some studies have suggested a possible link between exposure to ELF fields and certain types of childhood cancer. However, when all of the studies are evaluated, the evidence appears to be very weak.
LovelyCrap:I wonder if anyone has tried to take a group of these WiFi sensitive people and conducted a ABX or double-blind test. It might take a while to do since you'd need to give them time between each step so they can return to a "normal" state for consistant results, but seriously... wouldn't that determine if this phenomenon was real? All you would need is 2 identical chambers that are electromagnetically shielded. 3 chambers in the case of ABX.
Even if this phenomenon is real whats the answer! This world isTechnology driven and there,s no escaping it! What the term the Worse of Two Evils! I do beleive that it does cause health problems because its not Normal to have these EMF,s passing through our bodies but it is an Infinate Reality!

It's not "normal" to wear clothes either, do they pose health risks as well? What these people are claiming goes against overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary. There is, however, significant evidence of widespread psychosomatic neuroses causing issues. Until they can back it up scientifically, I say they're just hypochondriacs.

Well its not like they live next door to a Nuclear Power plant! Where would they move its everywhere so they gng to sue everyone you, me, NOT.Hey Im allergic to Bi Polar women but you cant Sue them and Im not doing without!
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
=o if they win will cell phones be later ban in that area lol cause that will be a true dead signal zone lol
this story is credible, some electromagnetic waves are beneficial for example diathermy, bone growth stimulator's ect, but some some are unhealthy
like cell phones, radars, ect, i heard an interesting story where the military discovered microwaves in plane cockpits in ww2 could cook things when soldiers carrying candy bars on them had completely melted in their pockets in a cool environment.
Electromagnetic am fm and micro waves do affect man, parts of the spectrum have an unhealthy impact. ive also heard interesting stories concerning the microwaves coming out of processors wich i tested to be true, microwave (GHZ) emitting desktop cpus with a TDP over 20 watts heats rooms and body's. Cordless phones negatively affect circulation. (inneficient cpus (over 30 watts TDP) also drain power and can cost 120$ more per year on your power bill, + they need noisy fans, and are inefficient.
without a verifiable testing its hard to conclude wether WIFI electromagnetic waves make people ill BUT there is very good evidence that many types of electromagnetic waves exacerbate an already existing illness in the human body wether it is subclinical or not.The has also been good evidence that the electromagnetic waves from low quality crt monitors or the past definately made people sick. (mostly the non energy star ones)
anyways, i cant really say if a wifi ban is fare, but if the defendant is made to pay for lead or steel shielding plates in the paintifs home its an option.
