Yeah, but does she have any handy dandy nifty things to protect from all out psychic attacks, too?

If not, she should diversify her market some. just sayin.

Here is a small study (only ten subjects) showing that people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity have normal brain MRIs, but fMRIs are abnormal, so there are starting to be tests for this kind of thing.

All electronics give off EMR.  Stand near the high power transmission lines and you can hear it in the buzz they give off.  Wouldn't surprise me if some people are sensitive to it.  Make your house or bedroom a Faraday cage to keep all external sources out of your living space.  Instead of bubble people, we can have Faraday people!

My wife and I are considering methods to Faraday the shell of our house when we build one.

Not because we are into this nonsense but to keep our WiFi inside.  If we need outside broadcasting for some reason we'll set up a cut out wired system for that.

Or have a wireless receiver on the outside, run a cable to device or another wireless transmitter.

What it basically says is that people who self-diagnose as having EHS have brain damage.

Seems legit.

Can you cause these people to have a complete nervous breakdown by explaining the magnetosphere and showing them how a compass works?

With the dawn of smart meters, Bobbitt says business is booming. Some of her clients are wrapping theirs (and their neighbors) in smart meter guards for about $130.

If the meters aren't communicating wirelessly then the device does nothing. If they are wireless smart meters then the device either does nothing, or the meter won't work.

So people with brain damage are crazy, and wifi is just like static magnetic fields. Yay! Problem solved.

The reason I'm interested in this stuff is that I had a photographer ask me about cell tower antenna patterns once. She accurately described it based on what she felt, but she didn't understand why it would be shaped like that.

The majority of studies indicate that EHS individuals cannot detect EMF exposure any more accurately than non-EHS individuals. Well controlled and conducted double-blind studies have shown that symptoms were not correlated with EMF exposure.
...
There are also some indications that these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about EMF health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself.

...
EHS has no clear diagnostic criteria and there is no scientific basis to link EHS symptoms to EMF exposure.

How can you even do MRIs or fMRIs on people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity without them screaming in agony the whole time?

It pretty much boils down to "their symptoms flare up when they see a power/activity light on the router", regardless of whether or not it is actually transmitting.

/That's also why most cellphone towers stay turned off for a number of weeks after first being put up, typically with a blinking light on the tower during that time. That way they can log all the incoming complaints and weed out the crazies calling in claiming it's making them sick, and have an easy defense if they later get taken to court by one of them.

The smart meters are wired. When ours were being installed, I asked the installer, "are these on wifi?" He laughed and said, "You know we have a big wire connected to every meter, right?"

I have acquaintances who are anti-vax, homeopathy-using, Scientologists with "chronic Lyme disease". They won't give their kids deadly peanut butter (but when the kids visit their cousins they eat it out of the jar with a spoon).

I bet the woman in TFA could make a few thousand bucks off them. I wonder if she pays finder fees.

At -70dBm signal levels, I'm pretty sure it's not your WiFi. More likely a chemical imbalance in your brain.

/-70dBm = 0.1 nW

Simple. They don't believe it affects them, therefore it doesn't.

The only reason they think WiFi affects them is due to psychosomatic responses.
