A woman who claims to be "allergic to Wi-Fi"has actually won a disability stipend from the government in a ruling that she hopes will affect "thousands". The affliction is, of course, entirely in her head:
The World Health Organisation says that electromagnetic sensitivity is "characterized by a range of non-specific symptoms that lack apparent toxicological or physiological basis or independent verification."
It also reported that tests for electromagnetic sensitivity had been unsuccessful, as people who claimed to suffer from the condition were unable to detect electromagnetic fields any more than people who weren't suffering from the condition.
This may be the first case in which disability payments are awarded for an imaginary "disease".
