+ - Tower switch-off embarrases electrosensitives-> 2

Submitted by Sockatume
Sockatume (732728) writes "Residents in Craigavon, South Africa complained of "[h]eadaches, nausea, tinnitus, dry burning itchy skins, gastric imbalances and totally disrupted sleep patterns" after an iBurst communications tower was put up in a local park. Symptoms subsided when the residents left the area, often to stay with family and thus evade their suffering. At a public meeting with the afflicted locals, the tower's owners pledged to switch off the mast immediately to assess whether it was responsible for their ailments. One problem: the mast had already been switched off for six weeks. Lawyers representing the locals say their case against iBurst will continue on other grounds."

      I hope you don't, this is a genuinely interesting story on the BS that is "electromagnetic sensitivity" or whatever they're calling it these days.
