Anti-Wifi Movement? Seriously?

Today I’ve read a story from Discovery News by Benjamin Radford from 1 Feb 2013 titled “Anti-Wi-Fi Activism ‘Fear Mongering’.

It turns out that there’s a movement of people who blame Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) give them health problems, which they’ve lumped together and named “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity” (EHS). EHS can supposedly cause a myriad of symptoms. Symptoms are so varied, in fact, that their isn’t really a “normal” case.

And it also turns out that double blind studies by the World Health Organization (WHO) concluded that “symptoms do not seem to be correlated with EMF exposure‚Ķ these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about believed EMF health effects, rather than EMF exposure.”

So basically, stop fear mongering and you might get better!
