Wi-Fi Causes Allergic Reactions In Santa Fe


A group of Santa Fe residents claim that they are allergic to Wi-Fi signals, according to a report published by local TV station KOB.

Arthur Firstenberg, representative of the group, opposes the installation of Wi-Fi networks in public buildings, as the signals cause "chest pain" that "does not go away right away." Firstenberg and "dozens of other electro-sensitive people in Santa Fe" believe that Wi-Fi networks in public locations therefore violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.

KOB said that the city attorney is checking whether public Wi-Fi could be considered discrimination.
