Seen At 11: Woman Says Her Wi-Fi Connection Is Making Her Sick

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — From using cell phones and computers to watching movies online, wireless technology has made life easier. But now, some say there is a serious downside.
As CBS2’s Maurice Dubois explained, there are those who claim that exposure to wi-fi is making people sick, and some people don’t even know it.
“Brain fog. That’s my worst problem. A brain fog,” Suzanne Hoyt said.
Hoyt said that nothing prepared her for the rush of symptoms that she suddenly developed.
“Headaches, perspiration, pain in my jaws and my heart. It’s like physical expansion of the heart,” she said.
Hoyt said it all started when she installed wi-fi throughout her apartment.
“I started to be very uncomfortable, and I didn’t know what it was,” she said.
With wi-fi everywhere, from parks to restaurants and taxis it turns out Hoyt is not alone.
“It was like a deep burning sensation in my face, in my nose, my jaw, it was like a deep burning sensation,” she said.
It’s called wi-fi sensitivity, and doctors say it’s a very real condition with serious consequences.
Dr. David Carpenter, an Environmental Scientist and expert on wi-fi’s effects said the scientific link between wi-fi and health is clearly emerging.
