Santa Fe Group Says They Have Wi-Fi Allergy
Want wireless banned in all public buildings...

There's no scientific evidence that Wi-Fi is a health hazard, but that hasn't stopped those who believe otherwise from trying to stop Wi-Fi deployment. Teachers have sued schools
to derail installs, while angel guidance consultants have launched campaigns against Wi-Fi
in their free time. The latest war on Wi-Fi is in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where a group is trying to ban Wi-Fi in public buildings. The group tells one local news station
(the video is worth a watch) that by ignoring their sensitivity to Wi-Fi signals, the city is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. I'd think that you'd need to actually prove Wi-Fi to be a health hazard first, but what do I know.

Re: And then there are those who swear they are affected
"And there was radiation streaming in through the one wall that I thought I hadn't needed to protect."I have that problem too - the radiation sometimes even wakes me up when I'm sleeping. Careful measurement showed that the radiation I was most sensitive to was in the 400 nm to 760 nm range.
Apparently some wall materials (referred to as 'glass') readily allow such radiation through.
Eventually, I found a store selling devices ('curtains') that lowered the radiation to acceptable levels.
The logical extension...
I'm allergic to idiocy. It makes me want to punch people in the face. The laws against punching people in the face are therefore a violation of the Americans with Disabilities act, and should not apply to me.
