  Santa Fe Residents Allege City's Wi-Fi Affecting Their "Electromagnetic

  Santa Fe, NM, United States (AHN) - A small group of Santa Fe residents is
trying to get all public Wi-Fi hotpsots in the city banned. They allege the
city's Access Points (AP) irritated their "electromagnetic allergies."

  In their legal effort to ban the signals, the group is using the Americans
with Disabilities Act as a measure to have city lawmakers bow to their
pressure. The case has now reached a new level with published reports
stating that one of the individuals in the original case is suing his
neighbors for refusing to turn off their cellphone and Wi-Fi hotspot.

  Artuhur Firstenberg is claiming his neighbor's technology forced him to be
homeless. He's unable to stay in a hotel or motel because they employ Wi-Fi
connections so he's been forced to sleep in his car.

  Health officials have repeatedly stated that there is no evidence to
suggest Wi-Fi signals have any impact on the human body. Additionally,
scientific studies have shown that people who claim to suffer from
"electromagnetic sensitivity" are in fact suffering from psychosomatic
disorders and are best treated by therapy or medication.
