T&G: Fay School being sued over claimed wi-fi caused illness

by beth on August 25, 2015

A family of a student at Fay School is claiming their son has been harmed by the school’s strong wifi signal.

In an article posted by Worcester Telegram & Gazette, the school is cited as having measured their signal strength at well below required safety standards. But the twelve year old’s attorney says the boy suffers from¬†Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).

According to the filed suit, the internet system installed in 2013 caused the student to suffer symptoms in class including headaches, nosebleeds, and nausea. The family is asking for the signal to be turned down or altered, in order to allow him to return to class next month.

EHS and claimed effects of wifi exposure in the schools are controversial in the medical and scientific community.

Good for them. This is just the beginning. Wish the schools would take this seriously!

I guess Fay has settled this somehow. I feel sorry for Fay. The claim is utter nonsense. The connection between whatever “symptoms” the child has and radio waves is purely imaginary. After repeated research worldwide (46 double blind studies) there is no way to link any physical symptoms whatsoever to low intensity radio waves. One may as well suppose that it’s caused by orange juice or the child’s pajamas. Pick anything at random and it is a better guess, because it hasn’t been ruled out, as this has. To top it off they found a Massachusetts MD who makes money off this nonsense. Wow. Crazy. Year after year, decade after decade, there is some nonsense like this that people imagine as a cause, for a while, until they move on to the next imaginary cause.
