Although the World Health Organization has not granted it the status of an official disease, millions of users around the world report having the symptoms of electrosensitivity or allergy to WiFi. From what is known so far, this condition arises after continuous exposure to electromagnetic fields and generates different effects, such as headaches, vomiting and constant dizziness that become more intense when approaching electrical devices.
It is also known as an invisible disease, because the effects are felt but the cause is not known, and diagnosing it is very difficult for doctors because it presents symptoms common to different pathologies. The curious thing about this disease, although it may seem strange, is that after consulting with several doctors and not reaching a certain diagnosis, many of those affected decide to look for the cause of their symptoms on the internet.
Because it is not considered an official disease, because research on the subject is practically nil, and because of the great difficulties that prevent a quick and safe diagnosis, those who suffer from it prefer to prevent the symptoms rather than cure them. Thus, many people decide to stay away from WiFi signals to avoid its symptoms, although in the information society this is not an easy task as there are networks everywhere.
The effects of electrosensitivity multiply and become more severe as people remain exposed to electromagnetic fields. Avoiding them completely seems impossible, as it would imply modifying homes, putting aside computers, televisions and many other appliances that we use every day, and even those used by our closest neighbors or co-workers.
Sweden has recognized and qualified electrosensitivity as a reason for permanent disability and there are even specific protocols that prohibit the placement of antennas in areas where public health may be affected. In England and France, certain complaints have been generated by the population that promise to be attended to as soon as possible, while the number of those affected is growing rapidly worldwide and waiting for a solution that has already taken too long.
