Group Claims Allergies to Wi-Fi

Posted:

A group in New Mexico is claiming discrimination against their allergies, not to dust, pollen, or animals, but they say they are allergic to wireless internet signals and they want them banned from public buildings.

Arthur firstenberg is among the group and says he can feel it when he walks into buildings with a lot of cell phone or internet activity, "We walk in, you get a headache; you walk in, and your chest hurts. Me i get chest pain and it doesn't go away right away."

Firstenberg, and dozens of other electro-sensitive people in Santa Fe, claim wireless fidelity, or wi-fi, in public places, like libraries, is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
