Electrosensitivity to electromagnetic radiation?



The Guardian’s ‘Bad Science’ column looking sceptically at electrosensitivity has pulled an unusually high and polarized amount of comment: those who say electrosensitivity consistently manifests in the afflicted in a form like “mild radiation poisoning” related to immersion in Wi-Fi networks, mobile phone broadcast areas, unshielded microwaves, and other broadcast fields; and those who say that while electrosensitivity symptoms may or may not exist (Goldacre says they definitely do), the cause has not been appropriately/scientifically tied to high tech devices or fields. Whatever the origin of the symptoms turns out to be, Goldacre does expose some bad gadgets designed to exploit the ill. His medical opinion: don’t buy crap. [GT]

Watch out for that blob of radiation!
