Santa Fe Group Says Wi-Fi Allergy Nothing To Sneeze At – Networking – IT Channel News by CRN and VARBusiness

Concerns about Wi-Fi connectivity are plentiful: potential security risks, lack of a signal and the cost to connect among them. But some New Mexico city residents are taking it one step further, claiming they’re suffering from allergic reactions to Wi-Fi.

Now theSanta Fe group has banded together, claiming signals emanating from hot spots and Wi-Fi in public buildings are causing symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

One Santa Fe resident told local TV station KOB-TV that Wi-Fi and the electromagnetic fields it radiates are causing him severe discomfort and that he’s stumping to ban Wi-Fi signals in public buildings because he and others are allergic to the radio waves.

“I get chest pain,” Arthur Firstenberg told the TV station. “It doesn’t go away right away. I suffer for a couple of days.”

Firstenberg, 57, added: “If I walk into a room of a building that has Wi-Fi, my most immediate sign is that the front of my right thigh goes numb. If I don’t leave, I’ll get short of breath, chest pains and the numbness will spread.”
